I recently joined a book club in my neighborhood and all of us girls read Lily’s Home Front. We all found it to be a great read. Lily was a likable character that you could connect to despite her living in a time period so far different from the crazy social media-centric society we live in now. Hillary Tiefer gives us a detailed and accurate version of the time when families faced uncertain futures and personal desires. The harsh realities of war are unfathomable. Bust with our heroine, Lily, you see the triumphs many faced over adversity. Well-written and descriptive makes this for a book club recommend read.
