When Love Calls by Lorna Seilstad (Review)

  • Paperback: 352 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (March 18, 2013)\

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800721817

  • 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:

    I loved this book. It is a great start to the new Gregory sisters series. It captured my attention and I did not want to put it down. It is a Christian historical fiction book but the historical details do not overwhelm it. I did not know about Hello Girls before this book and was interested in them and the time period. The characters and plot were well developed and the story well written. I loved Hannah's romance and the sisterly behavior between the Gregory girls. There were several funny moments too. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Highly Recommended. :)

    A history buff, antique collector, and freelance graphic designer, Lorna Seilstad is the author of Making Waves, A Great Catch, and The Ride of Her Life. A former high school English and journalism teacher, she has won several online writing contests and is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. Lorna lives in Council Bluffs, Iowa, with her husband. Find out more at
