Poland, 1909

Stanislaw is determined to escape the Russians and follow his brother to America, a land where anything seems possible.

Wisconsin, 1941

With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men’s work -- from fixing flats to driving the tow truck. They add their own touches, too: neat little caps, short skirts and roller skates, and the All-Girl Filling Station is born. Their peace doesn’t last long though: skilled women are needed to fly planes for the war effort.

Alabama, 2005

Mrs Sookie Earle has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to putting her feet up. But then one day a package arrives. Its contents knock Sookie sideways, propelling her back to the 1940s, and four irrepressible sisters whose wartime adventures force them to reimagine who they are, and what they are capable of.

    This was a really uneven book. The beginning was slow and too quirky for its own good. The middle was excellent and a few parts brought tears to my eyes (in a good way). The ending was predictable and...
