Mehso-so

This is an easy read (or listen) and was a good choice when I had other things on my mind. I wouldn‘t have been able to follow a complicated plot or more than a handful of characters. Overall so-so, but not in a bad way. There was one scene that could‘ve carried the story if the author had developed it more, dramatic and suspenseful. 2/5🍩s

I absolutely loved this book. Learned a ton about The Red Cross Girls—more historical insight into what WWII soldiers at the front faced...plus a great fictional plot.

As Donut Dollies best friends Fiona, Viv and Dottie are doing their part for the war effort by raising the spirits of soldiers with a taste of home. But Fiona has a much more important reason for joining up - to try and find out what happened to her fiancé Danny, who is MIA.

I loved this book so much! I have been fascinated by the Dollies since I first learned of them so I was SO excited to read this one and I was not disappointed!!

Melissa_J I just bought this so I‘m glad you liked it. Have you read this 8mo

Really enjoyed listening to this as an audiobook! This book is filled with warmth and strength. I‘d never heard of the Red Cross Clubmobile program during WWII.. these women‘s inspiration to the men at the front lines was brought to life! I felt like I was right there with Fiona, Viv, and Dottie and I would have wanted to be a Red Cross Clubmobile girl. If you love historical fiction about World War II era don‘t miss this book!
5 stars!

xxjenadanxx Ooh this sounds right up my alley! Stacking this one! 8mo

Interesting historical fiction bringing to light a group of women volunteers during WWII. These women volunteered with he Red Cross to go anywhere, even the front, to help boost morale among the weary soldiers. A little slow & repetitive to start, I became deeply invested in each woman‘s story.

It‘s always nice to have a book or two downloaded to my phone for those times when I‘m on the run, or, you know, just too lazy to go downstairs and get my book.

TheBookHippie I have this too how is it?? 10mo

3.5 STARS - The Beantown Girls by Jane Healey follows the lives of four women who are part of the Red Cross‘ Clubmobile Girls. These educated women were sent to bring a bit of home to the men on the front but through friendship, sacrifice and bravery did a whole lot more.

This book gives a different perspective on how women helped the war effort.

FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON MY BLOG ON FEBRUARY 14 OR ON GOODREADS AND AMAZON TODAY, 2/5.

I enjoyed learning about these women and this program and how these women helped during the war.

Despite the main story line about war, THE BEANTOWN GIRLS was an enjoyable read filled with friendship, caring, love, and of course tears and sadness.

Historical fiction fans and women's fiction fans will love this book.

I read Jane Healey‘s first book THE SATURDAY EVENING GIRLS CLUB and really enjoyed it – gave it a 4-star rating. But THE BEANTOWN GIRLS I absolutely LOVED – 5-star review (and more if I could). I was torn between wanting to know how things turned out for each of the girls and not wanting to leave their world. These girls were my friends for a few days – and today had to let them go.
