Goodreads:  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.

Ope’s Opinion: I am not usually a historical fiction reader, but my daughter ( Kristin ) said this is worth the read.  So I took her advice and I am really glad I did.  The story hooked me from page one.  The characters each have great stories and their perspectives are interesting.

Having two daughters, being a sister myself and seeing my mom and aunt’s relationship – I could really relate to this sister story.  Seeing the story unfold from both the sisters gave you great perspective as you read.  The secondary characters were as strong and well developed as the two main characters.

This was obviously set during WWII, but the relationships were timeless.
