Any additional comments?

I am new to Lynn Austin books and took a chance because I was interested in the home front during WWII. The story telling is excellent. The characters are developed masterfully--subtly drawing the reader into a tale of strength, change in adversity and the importance of finding friendship in unlikely places. Austin repeatedly shows how things are not always as they seem on first glance. Ideas of roles, expectations and preconceived notions are examined through the daily lives of the characters. It was a positive, redemptive story that was honestly told and completely engaging until the end. A pleasure.

A Woman's Place

Narrator did a fantastic job of distinguishing between all the characters. I would have rated the story five stars if it had not been for the author ending the story very abruptly and left you wondering if there is going to be a sequel - some unanswered questions. Very much enjoyed the story line.
