We are probably most of us aware of Rosie the Riveter and that women joined the workforce in large numbers in WWII to build the materials needed to win the war. This is a look into what it actually felt like to go work on the line building the machines of war. And how did society react to women in the workforce like never before?

You can tell that the author would be delightful to sit down over a cup of coffee and talk about her experiences with. A warm and engaging tale of two friends working in a factory over their summer break. A fairly short book but worth the read.
