Epistolary novels, perfected in an earlier century, can be daunting...But in Amy Stewart’s capable hands, the letter writers—three Kopp sisters and a nurse named Aggie—engage us so thoroughly and the real-time events are so compelling that the form works beautifully here ... One can’t help but root for these intrepid women and their birds as they do their part in the Great War. The historical revelations, especially, make for fascinating reading. I could barely wait to read the historical note at the end. Although this is the sixth book in the series, it’s the first one I’ve read. It won’t be the last.
There is plenty of intrigue and danger to be found here, of course (it is a war story after all), but there is also more than a little humor, much of it bird-related ... Certainly many stories of World War I have already been told, but Dear Miss Kopp helps bring to light much more of the women’s experience of war, both as part of the military complex and on the home front ... a thoroughly engaging chronicle of a variety of women’s experiences during the First World War, and it also helps set the stage for what the Kopp sisters will get up to after the war. Readers will be eager to see how their wartime experiences inform the choices they make next.
... the series returns to top form after a spell of doldrums in Kopp Sisters on the March (2019) ... The fictional opportunities [Stewart] dangles for her three feisty protagonists at the novel’s close will leave readers eager for the next installment ... Smart, fun, staunchly feminist entertainment.
