Book Review: When Love Calls

My grandparents were born in the early 1900's and that time period has always held a special place in my heart.  When Love Calls the new book by Lorna Seilstad begins in 1908 as the Gregory sisters are struggling to survive after the tragic death of their parents.  Hannah is the oldest and the bulk of the responsibility falls on her shoulders.  When the bank comes to take her house and they have little food to eat, Hannah is forced to look for work as a Hello Girl for the telephone company. 
The Hello Girls have a lot of rules to follow, and Hannah has always had a rather hard time following rules, so naturally many of the adventures that Hannah finds herself in revolve around her independent nature.  The one rule that she think will be the easiest to follow is the one that forbids any relationships with any gentlemen.  That was until she met a handsome young lawyer who happens to find her irresistible. 
Loved this story!  I enjoyed the time period, the historical details and most of all the interplay between characters.  I am looking forward to reading the next release of the Gregory Sisters Series!
I would give this book 5 stars!
