The Beantown Girls by Jane Healey
This is the story of Fiona, Dottie and Viv – three young women from Boston who become Red Cross Clubmobile Girls in the latter part of World War II. The Beantown Girls is a story of adventure, friendship and love in the midst of war. It is based on the true stories discovered while reading the diaries and letters of the real Red Cross Clubmobile Girls as they worked close to the front lines of the war in the European theater of operations. Their compassion, courage, kindness and sense of humor while living and working in the “bubble” of war was nothing short of extraordinary.
1944: Fiona Denning has her entire future planned out. She’ll work in City Hall, marry her fiancé when he returns from the war, and settle down in the Boston suburbs. But when her fiancé is reported missing after being shot down in Germany, Fiona’s long-held plans are shattered.
Determined to learn her fiancé’s fate, Fiona leaves Boston to volunteer overseas as a Red Cross Clubmobile girl, recruiting her two best friends to come along. There’s the outspoken Viviana, who is more than happy to quit her secretarial job for a taste of adventure. Then there’s Dottie, a shy music teacher, whose musical talents are sure to bring heart and hope to the boys on the front lines.
Chosen for their inner strength and outer charm, the trio isn’t prepared for the daunting challenges of war. Through it all come new friendships and romances, unforeseen dangers, and unexpected dreams. As the three friends begin to understand the real reasons they all came to the front, their courage and friendship will see them through some of the best and worst times of their lives.
