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 novels.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“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 tantalizing hint Stewart provides about what lies ahead for Constance.” Booklist (starred review)
“Kopp recalls the breezy fun of classic, female-centered movies such as Stage Door." Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Convincing characters behave in ways true to their era. Stewart does a wonderful job of illuminating a fascinating period in American history.” Publishers Weekly
