Item description for The Victory Club by Robin Lee Hatcher...
Overview Four women, working at an air field during World War II, face loneliness, hardship, and difficult choices, and experience the comforts of friendship while their loved ones are abroad fighting the war.
Publishers Description In times of war, sometimes victory seems like an impossible dream. In 1943, the women of America banded together to make a life for themselves while their husbands and sons fought overseas. Even as the men engaged in war, these women faced battles of their own on the homefront. Margo, Dottie, Lucy, and Penny never expected to face the hardships they must now find a way to conquer. But through the power of Christ and the power of friendship, perhaps this Victory Club will achieve more than any of them could have ever imagined.

A nice story Feb 15, 2007
"The Victory Club" was well written and a nice "clean" book. It did get a little preachy at times and I don't like how the one character who wasn't a Christian had the wayward life. Makes it seem that if you don't do things the Christain way, you will be miserable.
Found myself joining the club Jul 31, 2006
I got a copy of Victory Club for some background and to help get a feel of the time frame for a piece I was doing on WWII returning servicemen - I soon found myself forgetting the research and drawn into the story. Finely crafted characters, fast moving story, interesting story changes took me through the book in one sitting. Enjoyable read.

Excellent WW II Historical Fiction Jul 9, 2006
This book really opened my eyes to the heart ache of women who have loved ones fighting in a war. The 4 main characters are women who form a Victory Club. A club designed to support and help each other as well as others in the community during WW II.
Each woman has struggles to over come and all (except one) look to God to help them through. It was provoking to witness how these women put their trust in God and built their faith, and how they fought against the temptations that were before them.
My only disappointment is that I felt that the story ended too soon. I had wished that the author continued the story for a longer duration of time. But, it is still an excellent book and worth reading.
An appropriate book to read near Independence Day! Jul 2, 2006
The lives of four women are featured in this WW II era book. Most everyone is involved with the war efforts in one way or another. Husbands, sons, daughters and boyfriends are fighting a raging war thousands of miles away.
This book features what it was like to wait at home...waiting for letters which were often full of holes from censors....waiting for the next coupon book to purchase certain items, waiting for a loved one to return home.
Robin does a very nice job following the emotions, the daily life and the problems of these working women. Problems they face are unfaithful husbands leaving them bitter....a pregnancy that was not planned, a husband who is thought to be too lazy to help with the war efforts and a lonely young bride who nearly succumbs to an affair.
Religion plays a huge role in the lives of these families, and the book has equal parts of romance, history and suspense. Thanks Robin for a great book to read near Independence Day, it made our freedom seem much more understandable.
Enthralling and honest...I loved it! Jan 17, 2006
The Victory Club is a book that's hard to put down. As the story progresses, the reader is sucked into the heartache of each woman's life. Temptation becomes too great for Penny to resist. I found the grief her husband Stuart went through realistic and heart-breaking. Unfortunately, crises do not always turn people toward the Lord, and not everyone gets saved. How realistic. Margo learns how to deal with bitterness and accept God's grace. I loved how the author tied that together with her daughter Dottie's pregnancy. In the end, Margo becomes a woman at peace with her past and true love finds her. Excellent plotting and character arc there. Lucy fights her own emotions as she battles with loneliness and the enemy who wants to destroy her faith. I found it so realistic that the timing of her temptation was strongest when she was really trying to serve the Lord. Isn't that just how Satan works? Dottie longs for her mother's acceptance and forgivenss for her lapse in self-control and desires for the father of her unborn child to return so they can be a family. Her boyfriend comes back less than perfect, but that's what happens in wartime, so I found it very romantic that they continued to love each other and got married despite their mistake and his injuries. Overall, the author did an excellent job showing each character's issues and how their pain affected them emotionally. Those who knew God had a distinct advantage over those who were truly lost. Isn't that just how the real world is? I could sense the author's passion for the unsaved and love for the Lord in this story. She also did a wonderful job dealing with spiritual issues and without sounding preachy to me. I loved this book!
