THE WARTIME SISTERS by Lynda Cohen Loigman & Giveaway

Giveaway Closed

Relationships between sisters are complicated. There’s love, loyalty, envy and in the case of THE WARTIME SISTERS(St.MartinsPress), long-buried secrets that threaten to destroy an already tenuous relationship.
Just when you’re starting to think, there’s nothing left about World War II for another novel, THE WARTIME SISTERS comes along. It highlights relationships at the Springfield Armory National Historic site in Massachusetts in the 30’s and 40’s. Ruth and Millie are sisters. Ruth is the smart one and three years older, but Millie is the pretty sister and there lies much of the problem, which ferments over decades.

The two Brooklyn-raised sisters are reunited five years after being estranged at the Armory in the early days of WWII. While Ruth lives in relative ease on the perfectly landscaped campus as an officer’s wife, Millie arrives as a war widow with her toddler, Michael 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. Suddenly they are left with no other place to turn but to themselves.

Lynda Cohen Loigman tells a rich compelling story in THE WARTIME SISTERS. I fell in love with both Ruth and Millie and was routing for them to reunite. I felt as sad as they might have, being away from the other – for the wasted years, misunderstandings and heart-break.

I’m so happy this is one of my first reads of 2019! I’m excited for what the year in literature holds.

  1. I have a sister but we wasn’t raised together unfortunately so I really don’t have a relationship with her but I do have 2 brothers that I am very close with. My younger brother even is business partners with my hubby and we all take vacations together and get together at least once a month for a big dinner!

  4. I have a sister who I wish that I had a close relationship with. For the first time in 8 years she visited but it was really to see her daughters who were visiting the family. She stayed for two weeks and I treated her like a queen. She left and then didn’t bother sending me anything nor acknowledging my birthday. I was disappointed in her behavior.

  11. I have one sister who is 4 years older than me & we were never real close growing up, after our mother passed away we said we would keep in touch but she lives in California & I’m in Chicago so that doesn’t work very well. This book sounds amazing, Thanks for your generosity.

  13. I have basically been an only child all of my life. I had a brother who was almost 7 years older than me. Unfortunately, the only memories I have of him were not good, he was always in trouble and almost caused my parents to divorce. He was an alcoholic and drug addict all of his life and died of an overdose in 2006. When I was younger, I really didn’t want any siblings. But now as an adult, sometimes I think it would be great to have a sister.

  14. I have 4 sisters, three older and one younger. We were not close growing up as my two oldest sisters are 11 and 14 years older than me. Now that we are old ladies, we are very close. We spend the holidays together and talk to each other weekly.

  18. I’m the youngest of two, and though my sister is quite different from me (er….I might even use the word “opposite”), we are very close and I never realized until adulthood how protective she was (and still is!) of me. I love her dearly.
