Description

A novel of love, courage, and danger unfolds as World War II’s brightest heroines - the best of friends - take on the front lines.

1944: Fiona Denning has her entire future planned out. She’ll work in city hall, marry her fiancé when he returns from the war, and settle down in the Boston suburbs. But when her fiancé is reported missing after being shot down in Germany, Fiona’s long-held plans are shattered.

Determined to learn her fiancé’s fate, Fiona leaves Boston to volunteer overseas as a Red Cross Clubmobile girl, recruiting her two best friends to come along. There’s the outspoken Viviana, who is more than happy to quit her secretarial job for a taste of adventure. Then there’s Dottie, a shy music teacher whose melodious talents are sure to bring heart and hope to the boys on the front lines.

Chosen for their inner strength and outer charm, the trio isn’t prepared for the daunting challenges of war. But through it all come new friendships and romances, unforeseen dangers, and unexpected dreams. As the three friends begin to understand the real reasons they all came to the front, their courage and camaraderie will see them through some of the best and worst times of their lives.

Interesting history, just not my cup of tea

While I am a huge fan of historical fiction, especially pertaining to the exploits of women, this novel was more fabricated romance than historical fiction. Having said that, Beantown Girls was a wonderful presentation of women in the Red Cross and the era in which they served. The narration was fine, although the narrator had a lovely voice, she wasn't able to distinguish between male and female characters. For example, all men sounded the same.

Touching Story

I listened to quite a few books via Audible. I enjoyed historical fiction, and this is one of the best books I’ve listened to. This is a good story performed beautifully.

Absolutely wonderful!

Touching story of three girls from Boston that join the Red Cross Clubmobile girls, a little known piece of the history of WWII. I fell in love with these girls, their love interests and the soldiers they served in the last year of the war in Europe. This talented author weaves you into the story effortlessly, experiencing their initial trepidation turn into a selfless valor as they progress from girls to confident women.

Couldn't put it down

I stayed up way too late multiple times eagerly hearing every word. A story of love lost, love found, friendship, and the beauty of humanity amongst so much turmoil. A must read. Have tissues handy.
