Christy and RITA Award-winner Robin Lee Hatcher pens the moving stories of four women working in Boise, Idaho during World War II. Margo King fears for her son fighting on the North African front and tries to hide her painful past. Dotty King searches for forgiveness from her mother and God after committing a single ardent mistake. Lucy Anderson struggles to resist temptation while her husband is away in England. And Penelope Maxfield longs for a new life free from her husband and children. Told from each woman’s perspective, this story chronicles the hardships and uncertain times they all try to overcome with the help of their faith.

I enjoyed this book. The problems these ladies faced are as common today as during the war. This was my first book by Robin Hatcher, and I will definitely seek out her books again. I love reading Christian fiction. You can still have the great stories but without all the foul language that does not add anything to the message. The narrator has the perfect voice for this type book. I encourage others to read this and enjoy!
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
The Victory Club is the story of four very different women (who are friends) in Boise, Idaho during WWII. The war has affected each of them in ways they didn't expect and tested their faith in God. I very much appreciate the open Christian dialog in this book AND that the trials that the women and the soldiers that they love encounter are not sugar coated or swept under the rug, but rather are dealt with honestly. It's a good, solid listen. It's a clean, wholesome book, and the scriptures included are a balm to my soul.
