Overview

When Love Calls: A Novel by Lorna Seilstad

Hannah Gregory is good at many things, but that list doesn't include following rules. So when she is forced to apply for a job as a telephone switchboard operator to support her two sisters, she knows it won't be easy. "Hello Girls" must conduct themselves according to strict—and often bewildering—rules. No talking to the other girls. No chatting with callers. No blowing your nose without first raising your hand. And absolutely no consorting with gentlemen while in training.

Meanwhile, young lawyer Lincoln Cole finds himself in the unfortunate position of having to enforce the bank's eviction of the three Gregory girls from their parents' home. He tries to soften the blow by supporting them in small ways as they settle into another home. But fiery Hannah refuses his overtures and insists on paying back every cent of his charity.

When one of Hannah's friends finds himself on the wrong side of a jail cell, Hannah is forced to look to Lincoln for help. Will it be her chance to return to her dreams of studying law? And could she be falling in love?
With historic details that bring to life the exciting first decade of the twentieth century, Lorna Seilstad weaves a charming tale of camaraderie and companionship that blossoms into love. Readers will get lost in this sweet romance and will eagerly look forward to championing each sister's dreams.

It kept my interest from beginning to end. Spiritual lessons were a plus. Clean language and no graphic smut scenes - a definite plus! What a blessing it was to read!

Enjoyed this book very much! I never thought about the job of telephone operator when all calls had to be connected. Hannah is an independent woman responsible for her two sisters when their parents die. Life was not easy but the sisters always had each other. I think you will enjoy reading Hannah's story!

This book touched me mostly because my grandmother was a "Hello Girl" she retired from BELL telephone company. I never asked her about her days as a "Hello Girl". So this helped me understand a little bit of what she may have experienced.

Reading this book was pure pleasure. It was a step back in time and I felt like I knew each character. The biblical parts were especially refreshing. Once having a family member who was a switchboard operator really made it interesting.

A fun book filled with love romance and adventure. This is a book that would appeal to teens as well as those more mature. Very clean and you still feel the love between the charaters. Thank you for a good read. Will look for more by this author.
