WILMINGTON, MA — In the March episode of Book Stew, host Eileen MacDougall interviews author Jane Healey.
From the host: “I’m so excited to re-introduce you to Boston area author Jane Healey, who was with me two years ago for her debut novel The Saturday Evening Girls Club. Jane’s back with The Beantown Girls, a well-researched, fascinating historical fiction novel featuring three friends – Fiona, Viv, and Dottie – who volunteer at the WWII front lines as “Donut Dollies” in Red Cross Clubmobiles! Fiona’s fiancé is a missing pilot, Viv’s an artist, Dottie’s a vocalist, and their lives are transformed as they drive gigantic food trucks, tote heavy flour sacks, make dozens of donuts, and bring the troops some comfort and sweet reminders of home. The Beantown Girls is a Kindle Store and Washington Post best seller. I know you’ll really be fascinated by this remarkable episode in American history.”
