It’s the spring of 1917 and change is in the air. American women have done something remarkable: they’ve banded together to create military-style training camps for women who wan

Start your review of Kopp Sisters on the March (Kopp Sisters, #5)
This fifth book in the Kopp Sisters series is a change in format from the previous four. Now that Constance Kopp is no longer a deputy Sheriff, following the elections that brought in a new Sheriff with no need of female deputies, the books are no longer based on actual newspaper articles and reports of Constance's activities. Instead Amy Stewart has written a lively, fictionalised account of what the sisters could have been doing based on events that were happening at that time and place in an ...more

Episode 5 in the Kopp sisters' fascinating life as told by author Amy Stewart. The previous books have been closely related to real events as lived by these three fascinating women. Apparently they were very quiet in 1917 so in this book Stewart has imagined how they may have spent part of that year according to what was taking place in America at that time.

Poor Constance has lost her job after the appointment of a new Sheriff and has gone into retreat at the farm. Norma decides that all three o
If you worried you had seen the last of Constance Kopp when she lost her position as Deputy Sheriff in book four, have no fear! Amy Stewart breathes new life into all three Kopp Sisters, providing all that her fans have loved in the prior books and more. Not quite as true to fact as the previous outings, Ms. Stewart admits she has no idea what the Kopps were actually doing in 1917. She still manages to spin a tale with supporting characters pulled right from the annals of history and provides a ...more

Finding a way and not finding excuses......

Amy Stewart has masterfully given us the Kopp Sisters whose escapades have entertained us since the very first offering, Girl Waits with Gun. in this fifth book of the series, we find our gals sorting through their options in 1917 after Constance lost her position as Deputy Sheriff in Hackensack, New Jersey. Newly elected sheriff with a bad attitude shows Constance to the door. Weak in substance, this guy just doesn't want any competition from a woman w

This is book #5 in the Kopp Sisters series. I enjoy this series because it is solidly based on the real lives of the Kopp sisters. Even in this book the author gave 7 pages to the historical facts - chapter by chapter - of the non fictional portion of the book.

However I did not care for this book as well as I have the past four in the series. I believe it may have been because so much of the book was dedicated to a new character - also a true to life character - but not a major charac

Kopp Sisters On The March is the fifth book in the Kopp Sisters series by NYT best-selling American author, Amy Stewart. After a very public dismissal from her deputy’s position in Hackensack, and a depressing winter, in early 1917 Constance Kopp finds herself, with her sisters, Norma and Fleurette, and some two hundred other young women, at Camp Chevy Chase in Maryland. They are attending the National Service School, all her sister Norma’s doing.

She quickly deduces that it’s more theatre than

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 tantalising hint Stewart provides about what lies ahead for Constance. STARRED REVIEW

Long live the Kopp sisters! This brilliant series continues strong, as fearless Constance Kopp and her sisters Norma and Fleurette leave behind their New Jersey farm to attend a women's training camp. The US is on the verge of joining the war in Europe. Young women, mostly of privileged families, sign up to attend a National Service School to learn military bed-making, bandage-rolling, and some basics about marching in formation and understanding signalling.

For most of these women, it's not part

This is the best Kopp Sisters book in my opinion and I have enjoyed them all. The characters keep developing and growing which is amazing as it's based on real life people. The author says this has the most fiction in it and perhaps that really helped. Imagination is more entertaining than real life.

When the book opens in 1917, Constance is still sulking after being fired as a deputy by the new sheriff. Norma is anxious to get her beloved pigeons in the war effort so she signs them and her sist

My favorite in the series, this takes the story in a necessary new direction. It manages to gradually unfurl the plot and character of the focus of the mystery interwoven with the take of the three sisters in a training camp for women on the eve of WWI, all without diluting my interest or attention.

The story lines of the three sisters come together well here, while Constance, the former “lady cop” struggles with her identity and future, subtly takes top billing.

I love all the books in this series. They keep getting better.
The Kopp sisters join a National Service School that is apparently going to train women how to serve in World War I should the US join. Among the other participants is the infamous Beulah Binford who has joined under an assumed name. Norma has railroaded the Kopp sisters into it after Constance has spent the last six months depressed following the end of the fourth book (no point in saying anything else in case you haven't read any of these based-on-real-life novels), and has brought her pigeons ...more

It's the spring of 1917 and the United States is preparing for war. 

It has been a rough six months for Constance Kopp since we last saw her in book four, Miss Kopp Just Won't Quit.  
Now, Constance and her sisters Norma and Fleurette are joining the war effort by attending Camp Chevy Chase, a National Service School that acts as a training camp for women.  While the women in attendance will rise at dawn to perform the same exercises, drills, and marches as soldiers, they'll spend the day

Thanks to the publisher, Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt for allowing me to be a member of The Kopp Sisters Literary Society and for sending me a fun package with this book. This is number 5 in the series and I think it is one of the best yet. The three Kopp sisters are headed to an all female army camp to help prepare women to help the men who may be heading to war in Europe. It is Spring 1917 and the US has not officially entered the war, although men have gone to the front to support France and E ...more

[I received this ARC as part of the Kopp Sisters Literary Society]
This was a departure from the style of the last four books—following the three sisters as they (as described at the end of Miss Kopp Just Won’t Quit) head off to a camp for women to learn skills appropriate to support the European war efforts in WWI. In addition to our intrepid trio, an additional (historical) character is introduced and we learn her story through a series of flashbacks interwoven with the experiences in the camp.

I've enjoyed the books in this series so far. And I enjoyed this latest one, but not as much. The story was mostly about the real-life Beulah Binford, a woman infamous for a badly ending involvement with a married man. Most of this book covered the sisters being at a (faux) military training camp for women as WWI was raising its head, and there really were such camps. However, this book was much too fictitious for me. I appreciate that Amy Stewart clarifies at the end of the book what is true an ...more

Great historical novel that contains lots of fascinating accurate details of life in the U.S. in the 1910s, with the emphasis on women's lives. This fifth in the series doesn't have a mystery but the story is gripping. It also sets the stage for a thrilling sixth episode that promises to be full of action.

This was probably my favorite Kopp sisters novel so far. Since Constance is no longer a lady deputy, she disappears from the news. Amy Stewart is not daunted: she places the sisters into a National Service School, which was a real thing at the time, preparing women for World War I duties such as military style cooking, nursing, telegraph codes.

Much of the story is devoted to Beulah Binford, a woman whose name has become synonymous with “sinful” at the time, owing her being involved in a salaciou

The Kopp sisters are back at it. I wasn't sure what was going to happen to Constance, Norma and Fleurette after Constance lost her job, along with Sheriff Heath, at the end of the last book. Who is Constance without her ground-breaking role as lady deputy? She's lost and adrift, but the Kopp girls, all three, attend a military-adjacent training camp for women in 1917 during the US's ramp-up to its participation in World War I.

The main subplot is around another historical figure, Beulah Binford,

Oh, this was just wonderful! I was a little worried about whether this book would live up to my expectations, since Sheriff Heath had been voted out of office and Constance had lost her job. I wondered whether the sisters’ stint at a military-style training camp would be anywhere near as interesting as what I’d enjoyed of their lives in the past. I needn’t have worried. Amy Stewart has come through with a most engaging and satisfying story. One of my favorites in the series. She’s a wonderful wr ...more

Really a 3.5. I rounded up despite a couple of issues with the book because I love Amy Stewart's writing and she really knows how to pull a reader into the story.

"Kopp Sisters on the March" marks the second time Ms. Stewart has used another POV aside from Constance. And, as before, I think this hurts the story. I understand the reasoning, so the reader can get a better understanding of Beulah. But, and here is my second issue, doing so pushes Constance into the background. Which is a problem sin

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the 5th book in the Kopp sisters series. I have enjoyed each of these books and this one was equally wonderful. While the subject matter and story is different from the previous 3 books, this is definitely an interesting topic and the historical aspect is important. Well written and very enjoyable book.

A book about the Kopp sisters is always a great read (received as an eARC from Edelweiss) and this latest installment is no different.

Constance Kopp was a history maker when she became the first female Deputy Sheriff, and throughout the five installments of her story, she pushes the limits of roles of women. In this fifth story, her sisters join her as they all embark upon service in the Great War.

I really liked this, and I’m curious what others will think since a good chunk of this book is devoted to Beulah Binford rather than the Kopp sisters. I actually found her chapters to be the most interesting and was curious to learn more about her past. Stewart did a fantastic job of structuring the story in a way that made me eager to know how Beulah became a bit of a swindler, and what she was going to do to get out of it.

Stephanie, North River patron, June 2019, 5 stars:

I received an advance reading copy of Kopp Sisters on the March. Everyone who enjoys historical fiction with strong female leads should check out this latest Kopp Sisters novel when it is published in September. As usual, I was entertained but also amazed at how Stewart uses big and tiny details from primary sources to create stories about real people and the times and places where they lived. There are also some subtle parallels with our time.

What do you get when the three Kopp Sisters put their minds to helping the country prepare for war? You get pigeon training, hand to hand combat, and of course a variety show. And if that wasn't enough, Ms. Stewart also gives us Beulah Binford, the famed mistress of Henry Clay Beattie who was executed for the murder of his wife. I love this part of Ms. Stewart's books! She takes real history and weaves it into her stories. Amazing how many interesting characters were out there! Though, I think t ...more
