The Wartime Sisters by Lynda Cohen Loigman is a story set during WWII about sisters in both the traditional and non-traditional sense. Ruth and Millie are traditional sisters who have a troubled relationship. That is tested when Millie is down on her luck and she and her young son move in with Ruth and her family at the Springfield Armory in Massachusetts. At a time when many men are away at war and these sisters are struggling to deal with each other, the non-traditional sisters enter the picture and show us how women can build each other up with love and compassion and that the sense of family can come in many different forms.
