Item Description...
They watched their sons, their brothers, and their husbands enlist to fight a growing menace across the seas. And when their nation asked, they answered the call as well. Virginia longs to find a purpose beyond others' expectations. Helen is driven by a loneliness money can't fulfill. Rosa is desperate to flee her in-laws' rules. Jean hopes to prove herself in a man's world. Under the storm clouds of destruction that threaten America during the early 1940s, this unlikely gathering of women will experience life in sometimes starling new ways as their beliefs are challenged and they struggle toward a new understanding of what love and sacrifice truly mean.

Excellent!  Jan 28, 2007
Prolific author, Lynn Austin, well know for her biblical and American Civil War novels brings to life the early 1940's to tell the story of four woman whose lives are forever changed by the Second World War.

Four women, brought together by America's call for women to aid the war effort, take jobs at the Stockton Shipworks and train in electronics. Newly married Rosa wants to escape the disapproval of her parents-in-law while her husband Dirk fights overseas, Jean, the youngest, dreams of going to college, Helen is all alone after the death of her elderly parents and the wealth left to her is simply not enough and Virginia is desperately afraid she has become nothing more than a "servant" to her husband and sons. Working as a team the women discover that their differences are not enough to stand in the way of friendship. They discover abilities previously untapped and challenges never before experienced. When tragedy strikes and prejudice threatens to separate them these women find strength and hope in eachother and discover that faith and friendship is truly enough to overcome all things.

Lynn Austin has written a beautiful novel that held my interest throughout all of its 446 pages. Each chapter is written from the perspective of one of the characters but this is not a distraction or hard to follow. Despite finding Virginia's timidity irritating in the early chapters she soon developed into a character I understood more as her personality and circumstances were revealed. The remaining three characters were fascinating and believable and while from another era, their hopes, fears and challenges were easy to relate to. The author transports you to the 1940's with relevant detail and obviously impeccable research. The prejudices these women face entering a man's world are explored as well as other issues as relevant today as they were then like racisim, prejudice, bitterness and forgiveness.

A Woman's Place is a tribute to all women who sacrificed so much while their men were sacrificing their lives during the World War II era.
 
A Womans Place  Jan 23, 2007
I loved reading "A Womans Place" by Lynn Austin. This is the first book that I read by Lynn Austin and I could not put it down. I loved the backdrop of the American homefront during WWII and how women proudly worked to help win the war. She tells a great story of how 4 women from different backgrounds became good friends in the workplace. I hated to put the book down!
 
A GREAT READ  Jan 15, 2007
I GAVE TWO OF THIS TITLE AS CHRISTMAS GIFTS, BEING VERY FAMILIAR MYSELF WITH THE AUTHOR. ONE RECIPIENT HAS REPORTED BACK HOW MUCH SHE LOVED THE BOOK AND WONDERED IF THERE WERE A SEQUEL. SHE HATED FOR THE BOOK TO COME TO AN END. THE OTHER RECIPIENT HAS NOT READ HERS AS YET, BUT SHE HAS READ ALL OF THE LYNN AUSTIN BOOKS SO I KNOW SHE WILL LOVE IT TOO.
 
Winning Novel!  Jan 14, 2007
I had read "Eve's Daughters" before and that was my only exposure to Lynn Austin's delightful writing ability. I found this book to be amazingly well written. I feel that Austin writes with so many different layers of character and story development. She is a refreshing and delightful writer. I cannot wait to read all of the rest of her books! I highly recommend this book to anyone. I learned a lot about the time period in which the book takes place.
 
LOVED THIS BOOK!  Jan 12, 2007
Lynn Austin has written about four women who come together during war time in the 40's, bonding while working in a government factory. Loved Rosa spiking the church ladies punch, Ginny's fleeing her mundane wifely duties, Helen, who's secret past is revealed at the end, and Jean, who has dreams of her future in college. Somewhere there is a woman who either has known someone who worked during the war in a factory, has worked herself, has faced bigotry, and has faith through good and bad times. Each woman is different, yet form a wonderful bond. I could not put this book down and will immediatley order another Lynn Austin book. There's a lot of past in this book, yet it seems so "today". You'll laugh, cry and really get to know these four women with admiration.
