As America rises to meet the challenge of World War II, the call for defense workers unites four women at Seneca Shipyards in Michigan: Virginia longs to find a purpose beyond her role as a housewife; Helen's lonely, single existence drives her to accept a demanding job despite her advancing years; Rosa is desperate to flee her in-laws' rules; and Jean yearns to rise above her circumstances and attend college. As their lives intersect, this unlikely gathering of women will encourage, shape, and influence one another as they learn valuable lessons about themselves and about life, love, and faith. From the three time Christy Award-winning author of A Candle in the Darkness.

Great book. Wonderful character development although the ending is a little abrupt. I am a new fan of Lynn Austin

Loved this book. Was a nice view of the history of the war time. The bravery of women then. Enjoy Lynn Austin writing very much.
