When Love Calls by Lorna Seilstad

Back Cover: Hannah Gregory is good at many things, but that list does not include following rules.  So when she must apply for a job as a 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, which include absolutely no consorting with gentlemen while in training.

Hannah doubts it will be difficult to keep that rule—until a handsome young lawyer starts getting under her skin.
With historic details that bring to life the exciting first decade of the twentieth century, Lorna Seilstad weaves a charming tale of companionship that blossoms into sweet romance.


Review: I really connected with the character of Hannah Gregory. She is a strong, independent woman who does what needs to be done. She looks after her younger sisters and all the work and heartache that that task entails. No matter how hard it gets, she relies on the bond between her and her sisters and her hard work, and is loathe to accept help from outsiders. Weakness from herself, in her eyes, is unacceptable.

Then a young lawyer, by the name of Lincoln, stumbles into her life. Hannah is not used to having anyone to lean on. She is accustomed to being the support. The anchor. Adapting to having a man in her life that is willing and able to lighten her load is both a relief and a terrifying prospect at the same time. The romance is very much present in this story, and watching Hannah learn to trust and give herself over to Lincoln is so sweet. In addition to the romance, the relationships between Hannah and her sisters just wraps a warm fuzzy feeling around the reader's heart. I really enjoy Lorna Seilstad's novels. The characters are always spicey and the books fun to read. A perfect novel to lounge on the beach with.
