About the book:

     When romance calls, will she choose to answer?

     Hannah Gregory is good at many things, but that list does not include following rules. So when she must apply for a job as a switchboard operator to support her two sisters, she knows it won’t be easy. Hello Girls must conduct themselves according to strict – and often bewildering – rules, which include absolutely no consorting with gentlemen while in training.

     Hannah doubts it will be difficult to keep that rule – until a handsome young lawyer starts getting under her skin.

     With historic details that bring to life the exciting first decade of the twentieth century, Lorna Seilstad weaves a charming tale of companionship that blossoms into sweet romance.

My review:

     This is a heartwarming inspirational romance.

     Hannah Gregory and Lincoln Cole are wonderful characters who are trying to follow God's leading in the midst of falling in love. Both of these characters, as well as Hannah's two sisters, are incredibly deep and beautifully presented. I love the way that the relationships between the different characters develop as much as I love the way that each person grows throughout the story.

     When the book starts all we know about Hannah is that she is responsible for her two younger sisters in the wake of their parents' deaths. As the story progresses we find out what her dreams are, what changes she has had to make since she had to take charge, and what level her commitment to doing the very best she can is. Then she receives some very wise counsel from a couple of very mature and strong women that enter her life. Her growth because of this in her own life and in her relationship with God is fantastic.

     At the same time Lincoln is on his own path of growth and discovery which is equally uplifting and eye opening.

     I loved this entire novel and am really looking forward to reading the other books in this series. I highly recommend this sweet romance and am giving it 5 stars.
