Description

The fearless Kopp sisters are back in another unforgettable romp by HWA-longlisted international bestseller Amy Stewart.


It's 1917, and the US Army is marching to join its allies in the First World War. Constance Kopp and her sisters may not be soldiers, but that doesn't mean they can't do their bit. All over America, women are banding together to create military-style training camps, and so the Kopp sisters leave their farm in New Jersey to learn some army discipline.


In Kopp Sisters on the March, the women of Camp Chevy Chase face down the scepticism 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.

Review quote

'Told in Stewart's nimble, witty prose, this fifth in the popular series is based largely on fact and offers a paean to patriotism and the role women have played in war, even a century ago. Devoted fans will be pleased with the tantalising hint Stewart provides about what lies ahead for Constance.' -STARRED REVIEW * Booklist * 'Constance Kopp takes on the military establishment in Kopp Sisters on the March, the fifth in Amy Stewart's entertaining series about three fiercely feminist sisters who refuse to believe that men are meant to rule the world.' * Washington Post * 'Loosely inspired by an actual crime fighter ... the brisk Kopp Sisters on the March, with Constance and her sisters - crabby Norma and dreamy Fleurette - enrolling in one of the National Service Schools that prepared women for what World War I would require of them, on the home front or overseas.' * Star-Tribune * 'A thrilling mix of history and feminism, this new 'Kopp' story contains the same captivating storytelling as the first one, with plenty of nuggets for series fans.' STARRED REVIEW * Library Journal * 'Set in the spring of 1917, Stewart's enjoyable fifth Kopp Sisters novel finds the three Kopp sisters ready to do their bit as the U.S. prepares to enter WWI ... Convincing characters behave in ways true to their era. Stewart does a wonderful job of illuminating a fascinating period in American history.' * Publishers Weekly * 'A feisty, fact-based series ... After losing her dream job as Bergen County deputy sheriff, Constance Kopp regroups at a Maryland Army camp for women on the eve of World War I ... Plenty of loose ends are dangled for future volumes as Constance and Beulah both make peace with their pasts and plans to move forward.' * Kirkus Reviews * 'A pleasing tale with a touch of excitement.' -- Clive Hodges * Good Reading *
