In the fifth installment of Amy Stewart's clever and original Kopp Sisters series, the sisters learn some military discipline??whether they're ready or not??as the U.S. prepares to enter World War I.
It's the spring of 1917 and change is in the air. American women have done something remarkable: they've banded together to create military-style training camps for women who want to serve. These so-called National Service Schools prove irresistible to the Kopp sisters, who leave their farm in New Jersey to join up.
When an accident befalls the matron, Constance reluctantly agrees to oversee the camp??much to the alarm of the Kopps' tent-mate, the real-life Beulah Binford, who is seeking refuge from her own scandalous past under the cover of a false identity. Will she be denied a second chance? And after notoriety, can a woman's life ever be her own again?
In Kopp Sisters on the March, the women of Camp Chevy Chase face down the skepticism of the War Department, the double standards of a scornful public, and the very real perils of war. Once again, Amy Stewart has brilliantly brought a little-known moment in history to light with her fearless and funny Kopp sisters nov

Note: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher at ALA Annual 2019.

A delight to experience the next installment of the Kopp sister's indomitable lives. I love how Norma just hammers the world into shape around her, and Constance takes charge, whether she wants to or not. This one shines in the excellent foil that Beulah's story adds to the mix -- another historical figure, but a completely different woman's life in the time period than we have seen thus far.

In the Spring of 1917, at on onset of WW I, an amazing number of American women created and participed in military-style training camps known as the National Service School. Once again, the author uses actual people and events from history to create an interesting and exciting novel about the Kopp Sisters. In Book #5, Constance Kopp and her sisters go off to one of these camps in Chevy Chase, MD. Their experiences at this camp and the addition of several new real life characters provide depth and intrigue to this story. Well written, including extensively documented historical notes. ( )

This is the 5th book in a charming series based on real life sisters in NJ, one of whom was the first female deputy sheriff in Bergen County. In this installment, the sisters are participating in a National Service Camp in Chevy Chase, Md, as the US is preparing to enter WWI. While the action is mostly fiction, the book is based actual events and people. I initially missed the northern New Jersey setting but quickly warmed to the alternating stories, including that of Beulah Binford, in this entertaining book.

My thanks to the author and publisher for sending the ARC. ( )

Although the fifth book in the series, I did not read previous installments. I suspect I missed useful backstory which would lead to a great appreciation for this book. The Kopp Sisters--Constance, Norma, and Fleurette--attend a National Service School prior to the United States' entry into World War I. Everyone expects the United States to enter the war, and many women want to contribute to the cause. Norma wishes to train pigeons. Constance, recently fired from her deputy sheriff position by the new sheriff who sees no use for women in law enforcement, does not want to be the camp's matron although she ends up in that role. Notorious Beulah Binford shows up at the camp under the presumed name of Rosanna "Rosie" Collins. In the author's afterward, she admits fictionalizing more narrative in this book than previous ones because she knew less about the sisters' activity during the time. While the setting and championing of women's abilities will draw fans, the story's weakness leaves readers unsatisfied. Perhaps the story's weakness came from trying to place real people in places they never were just to provide contact with another character, but the plot seemed to move nowhere. Still I enjoyed learning a little about the National Service Camps, although the author embellished them a bit. ( )

The National Service School was organized by the women's section of the Navy League to train American women for the duties which come to them in wartime and in the great national disasters, which included nursing the sick, feeding the hungry, making bandages and other surgical supplies, and comforting the sorrows and relieving the necessities of those dependent upon the defenders of the nation at the front.... There was no intention of producing a modern Amazonian corps. --Richmond Times Dispatch, April 1, 1917
