Praise for the June: Roots of Steel
“A great story, and a wonderful evocation of recent history. I found the story of a pioneering woman architect fascinating. Her story of life in England during WWII is engrossing and made even better by the inclusion of letters, which the author wrote at that time. The author projects a feisty temperament, which, along with her obvious talent, must have been a big help in opening career doors and achieving such a fulfilling life. Her observations of the relationships between England and the US are thought-provoking.”
