When Love Calls by Lorna Seilstad

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:

5 Stars

This is a fantastic book!!! After reading Lorna Seilstad first series I knew I couldn't wait to read more from her. I personally think this is her best book yet and I can't wait to for the next two books to come out. 

I just loved the setting off this book! Lorna did a great job of bringing to life what it was like to be a Hello Girl (switch board operator) for the telephone company. Hannah Gregory learns what it is like and how hard it is to follow all the silly rules. For example, a Hello Girl can't itch with out permission and must remain facing forward with both feet flat on the ground at all times, any glances away were recorded. All the little rules and life that they lived was fascinating to read about and also crazy to think of how times have changed in the world of telephones. 

I truly loved this book and can't recommend it enough to fans of Lorna Seilstad and Historical Romance readers in general. This book is a page turner with loveable characters and history that is just interesting. Great Job Lorna on a great book.

*I received this book from Revell for the purpose of this review. Thank You!
