Book Review | The Girls from Winnetka

Title: The Girls from Winnetka

Author: Marcia Chellis

My Review:

Let me tell you about The Girls from Winnetka. They’re a diverse, strong, fascinating group of women who have stories to tell.

Oddly enough, when I signed on to read this book, I thought, “Oh, I love reading about simpler times.” You know, when everything was so easy, so innocent, so “Apple Pie.” And, almost immediately, the “girls of Winnetka” pointed out that times were not easy for them.

I loved the The Girls from Winnetka for several reasons. They are a group of women who were like sisters, the kind of women you want to call “friend.” They each had a unique and valuable story to tell…all ones that made them who they were. But, I loved that it was a glimpse into a period that we often think of as an innocent time, a simpler time.

The format of The Girls from Winnetka was, in my opinion, part of its indelible charm. Telling the stories of each “girl” that made of this band of “sisters” was brilliant…and compelling. I couldn’t get enough! The Girls From Winnetka would be a treat for so many women in your life!
