"Loigman’s strong voice and artful prose earn her a place in the company of Alice Hoffman and Anita Diamant, whose readers should flock to this wondrous new book." —Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan’s Tale Two estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. While one sister lives in relative ease on the bucolic Armory campus as an officer’s wife, the other arrives as a war widow and takes a position in the Armory factories as a “soldier of production.” Resentment festers between the two, and secrets are shattered when a mysterious figure from the past reemerges in their lives. "One of my favorite books of the year." —Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Dollhouse and The Masterpiece "A stirring tale of loyalty, betrayal, and the consequences of long-buried secrets.” —Kristina McMorris, New York Times bestselling author of The Edge of Lost and Sold on a Monday

This story alternates between pre-war Brooklyn and Springfield, MA at an armory during the war. Sisters Ruth and Millie have had a difficult relationship with each other since adolescence, but the war finds them living together again. Each woman has kept something from the other and they struggle to put the past behind them. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

♥️HAPPY PUB DAY!!♥️

FULL REVIEW: https://bit.ly/2RHZquz

THE WARTIME SISTERS focuses on relationships between the sisters, between a mother and her daughters, between other women, and on how everything affected their daily lives.

THE WARTIME SISTERS held my interest because of the well developed characters.

Ms. Loigma's writing is very detailed and pulls you in with the beautiful way she has the words simply grab you.

Don‘t miss reading it.

k.reads.5 Great review! I loved her book The Two-Family House! 6mo

This was a beautiful heart-warming story of the relationship between sisters. But it also about the relationship between a mother and her daughters and relationships among women. Each character was very well-developed and relatable. I felt these could be women I know.

I loved the entire story, as it evoked emotions within me. The writing was beautiful and had me totally immersed in the story.

Reecaspieces It is a super good read! ❤️ 6mo

FULL REVIEW 1/22/19

THE WARTIME SISTERS focuses on relationships between the sisters, between a mother and her daughters, between other women, and on how everything affected their daily lives.

When a small comment was slyly dropped in one of the chapters about a truth Ruth kept from Millie and then a truth Millie had kept from Ruth, the interest definitely was upped.

THE WARTIME SISTERS is a beautiful, warm, marvelously researched read. 5/5

rubyslippersreads Sounds great! 7mo
SilversReviews @rubyslippersreads It was such a good read...LOVED it. And the cover is gorgeous. Thanks for commenting. 7mo

***#earc thanks to #netgalley for a fair review***

I thought the best thing about this story was the setting at the Springfield Armory during WWII in the novel‘s second half. That being said, it‘s a secondary setting and not enough, in my humble opinion, to warrant the titular “Wartime” descriptor. They should have called it “Sisters, Sisters,” but I suppose that just wouldn‘t sell as well! 😉🤣

Except, there‘s nothing romantic about this pair. There‘s quite literally no love lost between them. Ruth and Millie are two young, Jewish Brooklynites with contrasting temperaments and years of family jealousy separating them thanks to a good stubborn soul! Several years apart in age, they are each products of their own generation! Eyes up, you two! No one will ever love you more than your sister. It‘s best you two learned that!

This novel reminds me of the old Irving Berlin song “Sisters, Sisters” 👯 sung by Rosemary Clooney (gorgeous voice) and Vera-Ellen in the 1954 romantic comedy White Christmas.

Velvetfur I love that song! It's firmly lodged in my brain now, hehe 😊 8mo
MellieAntoinette @Velvetfur Such a good song, right! 8mo

I checked my email before bed and realized I won a book from Goodreads. 🤗 Considering my day began with a trip to urgent care because when I woke up I couldn‘t hear out of my left ear (raging ear infection and a partially ruptured ear drum -UGH), I‘m glad to end the day on a positive note. ☺️ 🎉

megt Ugh, what a bummer way to start out your day! Hope you‘re feeling better soon! 12mo
PenguinInFlight @megt thank you! 💜I‘m on antibiotics and a nasal spray now, so hopefully I can get this thing kicked. I‘ve slept 40 of the last 48 hours, I think. It‘s really knocked me down. 😴 12mo
