Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Adrift after being fired as deputy sheriff in Bergen County, New Jersey, Constance Kopp joins her sisters Norma and Fleurette at the newly established National Service School for women at Camp Chevy Chase, Maryland, in 1917. When the camp matron breaks her leg, Constance is persuaded to take over, and, liking nothing more than being in charge, she begins to tailor classes to resemble men's training, including marksmanship and hand-to-hand combat for a select few. While many of the campers are young women from wealthy Manhattan families, one doesn't fit that mold: Beulah Binford, a national symbol of moral degeneracy, views the camp as her last resort after being sacked as both an officer at a New York factory and the mistress of the factory's owner. Claiming to be Roxanne Collins of Park Avenue, she trains lackadaisically and keeps her anonymity until provoked, in an incident that rocks the camp. As the U.S. enters WWI, Constance takes command to show what women can do. Told in Stewart's nimble, witty prose, this fifth in the popular series is based largely on fact and offers a paean to patriotism and the role women have played in war, even a century ago. Devoted fans will be pleased with the tantalizing hint Stewart provides about what lies ahead for Constance.--Michele Leber Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in the spring of 1917, Stewart's enjoyable fifth Kopp Sisters novel (after 2018's Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit) finds the three Kopp sisters ready to do their bit as the U.S. prepares to enter WWI. They head off to the National Service School in Maryland, a camp to teach women ways to help the war effort. Constance, the eldest, is at loose ends after losing her job as sheriff's deputy in Paterson, N.J. Middle sister Norma thinks the army will need her homing pigeons to carry messages from the battlefield. Fleurette, the youngest, plans to entertain the troops. All the volunteers have their own reasons for being there, but one in particular, the notorious real-life Beulah Binford, is hoping to finally put her past behind her. Flashbacks reveal Beulah's role in a murder scandal. When Constance is recruited to run the camp, she quickly decides the girls should know more about preparedness than rolling bandages. Convincing characters behave in ways true to their era. Stewart does a wonderful job of illuminating a fascinating period in American history. Author tour. Agent: Michelle Tessler, Tessler Literary.
