It was in September of 1942 when “Rosie the Riveter” became a national symbol for the working woman.

Many women entered the work force and filled the necessary roles as more men were drafted and enlisted into the United States military.

Today’s book review has to do with the working woman and that lovely riveter, Rosie!

In “Love Find you in Victory Heights”, Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss bring flare, laughter, love, and historical points to the table:

 

The Second World War has stolen Rosalie's fiance from her. But rather than wallow, Rosalie throws herself into her work at the Boeing plant in Victory Heights, shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. A local reporter dubs her Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter, and her story lends inspiration to women across the country. While Rosalie's strong arms can bear the weight of this new responsibility, her heart cannot handle the intense feelings that begin to surface for Kenny, the handsome reporter. Fear of a second heartbreak is a powerful opponent - but will it claim victory over love?

This is the duo’s second book written together. The chemistry in their writing flow as if written by one person. I found this to be a beauty of a masterpiece and I hope you will give it a go if you have not already!
