Heaven and Hell for the Tobacco Girls is book four in the Tobacco Girl series. The series is written by Lizzie Lane. This is the first book that I have read by this author. I have not read the other books in the series. They can be read as standalones.
This is a WWII novel that is set in 1943. We see three friends: Bridget, Phyllis and Masie. Their friendship started while the were working at the tobacco factory. The women's lives have changed a great deal with the war. They are now scattered due to the war. America has entered the war. War life is starting to take their toll on the characters. Even though this is the only story that I read, I could see the characters evolve and grow within this one story.
The book is well written. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. I will be going back and reading the series from the beginning. The writing flows easy. The author has done good research to make this story as real feeling as possible.
Thank you to the author and Rachels Random Resources for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
