|She Built Ships
During World War II
What do the Port Chicago explosion, Tuskegee Airmen, Japanese American internment, the first child care center, women welders and riveters all have in common? With meticulous research on WWII era, Jean Slone weaves an intricate story of cruelty, compassion and love. The courage of women welders who built ships while their husbands were at war is depicted so well that the characters come to life. A tender romance is threaded throughout the book and we agonize with the heroine as she brings it to its inevitable conclusion. Between the fascinating and sometimes Larger than life sympathetic characters, this historical fiction is a page-turner to the very end.
