Canary Girls by Jennifer Chiaverini

Canary Girls by Jennifer Chiaverini

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A fascinating story about female munition workers during WWI who also played football (soccer); they were called the Canary girls. There are three POVs and they are all compelling. April is young and joins the factory for better hours and pay then being in service. Lucy’s husband is a soldier and she works to be able to keep their home and meet the bills. She will also do anything to bring her husband home and hopes her contribution makes a difference. Helen’s father was German and she’s a suffragette. She marries Mr. Purcell whose father owns several factories. One of which is converted to munitions. The TNT in the bombs turns the women’s skin yellow and bleached the color from their hair. Some munitionettes even died from blood poisoning. The characters and their lives are fascinating. The author truly brings this time period and these incredible women to life. A must read for all historical fiction fans. Don’t miss the author’s notes at the end. They are fascinating!

A great read-alike: The Call of the Wrens by Jenni L. Walsh.

Available August 8, 2023!
