The Gregory sister's lives are turned upside down when their parents die. Not only are they grieving the death of their parents, but they cannot afford to payoff the mortgage and family debts. They are faced with losing their home while having to make major life changes and decisions that will effect the rest of their lives. Neither sister has a husband, fiance, or even a prospective husband. And, neither sister has a job. Actually, they are all still in school, albeit, the two oldest are in vocational schools.
The first book, When Love Calls, provides the background information for the series. The 3 sisters are in all of the books, but each book has a primary sister character.
When Love Calls Book Synopsis
When Love Calls (The Gregory Sisters Book #1)
A NovelWhen Love Calls focuses on the oldest sister, Hannah, who is in law school. When her parents die and the family home is repossessed, Hannah makes the difficult decision to leave school and go to work. After all, someone has to earn money for rent, food, clothes, etc., for all 3 girls.
Hannah feels extremely blessed when she is hired as a "Hello Girl", a switchboard operator for the telephone company. Unfortunately, the very thing that would make Hannah an excellent attorney, is the part of her personality that makes her a problem by company standards. Hannah has a mind of her own. She doesn't make a very good conformist follower. Still, she tries hard because she really needs the job.
There are so many changes all at once in Hannah's life, it makes it hard for her to know who she can trust. When the very attorney who represented the bank in their home foreclosure seems to keep turning up, Hannah isn't sure if he is trustworthy, yet she needs his help. As it turns out, they have a lot in common.
My Opinion of "When Love Calls"
I suspect this book was named "When Love Calls" because Hannah is a switchboard operator. However, it could easily reference how she changed the entire direction of her life because of her love for her sisters. She answered the "call" to care for her sisters instead of finishing law school.
Because of her life changes, she meets someone and falls in love. Of course, he does call her on the phone occasionally. Regardless, what is clear is that love dictates Hannah's actions.
There are many changes in the Gregory sister's lives over the course of the series. The one thing that is consistent is the bond between sisters. Regardless of trials, failures, fortune, or life choices, these girls remain committed to supporting each other.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a wholesome and uplifting story of love and family.
