Reviews

"A fun romp."--Publishers Weekly
"Haine's assured debut brings the WWII era to vivid life."--Publishers Weekly
"[a] pitch-perfect rendering of the early '40s, from rationing to java stops at the automat."--Kirkus Reviews
"Perfectly captures the feel, sights and sounds of New York in the 1940s."--Rhys Bowen
"Haines capably combines homefront ambience (rationing, worries over soldier boyfriends)with plenty of backstage drama....and Rosie and Jane make a winning team of fiesty homefronters..."--Booklist
"Haines brings home the painful price the "greatest generation" paid more gallantly than anyone then knew."--Publishers Weekly
"A breezy look back at the '40s, complete with starlets in short skirts and mobsters smoking Cuban cigars."--Kirkus Reviews
