The Blackout Book Club by Amy Lynn Green is the tale of four different women who form the Blackout Book Club at the beginning of World War II. The author tells the story alternately from each women’s view point, giving insight into their personality and backyard.
As they meet, these very different women discover they aren’t so different after all. Each is affected by the war that has come to the shores of their small Maine town. Each has secrets she tries to hide. And eventually, each woman realizes, no matter how different they may appear, they need each other.
The author gives a glimpse into wartime America at the beginning of WWII through her characters, what they do to support the war effort, and letters they receive. Along the way, the author introduces readers to the books the book club is reading.
If you are looking for a story about friendship with a bit of history mixed with secrets and intrigue, then perhaps The Blackout Book Club is the book for you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
