Hildy,Belle and Cora are three very different women, making their way in a very difficult world. War, devastation, love and heartbreak are elements they each have to deal with and overcome in their own way. I loved the strength and support they gave each other in times of hardship, and how, no matter how they made it through the blackest times, they were essentially good women doing what they had to do. June Tate writes totally from the heart, and I was with the trio every step of the way. The ending was surprising yet perfect. A lovely book, of its time and still so resonant now. Another great read from this fabulous author.
