WRJ Book Club – The Wartime Sisters
Friday, October 22 at 10:00 am

Please join the WRJ/Sisterhood Book Club for fascinating reading and interesting discussions. On Friday, October 22, at 10:00 am, we will meet to discuss The Wartime Sisters by Lynda Cohen Loigman, a book about female friendship and devastating family secrets. In May 2017, our group enjoyed reading The Two-Family House, also by Lynda Cohen Loigman. If local COVID cases continue to soar, we will return to Zoom meetings, so please check your email for updated information.

As described by Amazon, The Wartime Sisters shows the strength of women on the homefront. “Two estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. While one sister lives in relative ease on the bucolic Armory campus as an officer’s wife, the other arrives as a war widow 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.”

Everyone is welcome to attend. Please contact Susan Waterman at [email protected] with questions, comments, and suggestions for future book selections.
