3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
As featured on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour. 1914: war has broken out across Europe and beyond. Nothing will ever be the same again for those caught up in the conflict. This collection of short stories explores how the First World War changed and shaped the lives of women forever. A courageous nurse risks her life at the Front Line; a young woman discovers independence and intrigue in wartime London; and a grief-stricken widow defends her homeland amidst the destruction of war. Through these and other tales, War Girls presents a moving portrait of loss and grief, and of hope overcoming terrible odds.

You‘ve spoiled me, @rubyslippersreads ! ๐Ÿ˜ I haven‘t heard of the tagged book and it sounds so good. I had read a few of Haywood‘s Betsy book from my elementary school library but not this one โ€ฆ and a Folio Society edition of one of my favourite books! ๐Ÿ˜ I‘ve eyed copies of it before but never bought it. The octopus socks are awesome! And I love the card, chocolate, and bookmarks (especially โ€œI Am Quite Put Outโ€ ๐Ÿคฃ).

Thanks so much, my friend!

rubyslippersreads I‘m so glad you like everything! It was hard not to keep those octo-socks for myself. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Hope you‘re having a lovely day. ๐ŸŽ‚ 1mo

โญ๏ธWar Girls (haven't read it yet, but had to have it as soon as I saw the cover. ๐Ÿ˜)
โญ๏ธSue Grafton, Marie Lu, Kathryn Leigh Scott, Lara Parker, Maureen Goo, Barbara Kingsolver, Amy Spalding, Laura Levine
โญ๏ธI've never tried it, but I've always wanted to taste one of Harriet the Spy's egg creams

Zelma I finally tried a chocolate egg cream at a NY deli last year. It tasted like a fizzy Yoo-hoo. Pretty good but not something I would crave. 4y
BookBabe Oh shoot! I forgot the egg creams! That‘s another one for me. I hunted it down and finally had one in a vintage soda shoppe in Brooklyn 4y
