Meg Clayton It is historical fiction, and while I did a tremendous amount of research for it and have tried to make it as historically accurate as possible, it is first and foremost a novel, not a history lesson.

You certainly will learn about the experiences of real women journalists covering WWII, and there are cameo appearances by real journalists (both male and female), but the main characters are figments of my imagination. If you learn something while reading their story, that's great. I hope you will (and I certainly did when writing it). But if it reads like a history book, then I have failed.

I hope that helps!
