A War of Her Own
(A Novel of the World War II Homefront)
by Sylvia Dickey Smith
Crickhollow Books, 2010

Best Novel of the Year – Press Women of Texas

Best Novel of the Year, 2nd Place Award  – National Federation of Press Women

“A well-written book.” – Dallas Morning News

Bea Meade is a spunky heroine who, after a rocky start, takes charge of her own life in defiance of family secrets and the exigencies of war.”
– Carola Dunn, bestselling author of the Daisy Dalrymple and Cornish mystery series

“Smith writes with a descriptive power that makes you feel you’re among the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone Texas.”
Galveston Daily News

A fine tale of the struggle of women during World War II.”
Midwest Book Review

A War of Her Own awakens a part of Texas few knew during a time fewer yet remember. At the end of the book, we walk away with new admiration for the true grit that resides in the human spirit, and a deeper appreciation for the struggles and victories of the Greatest Generation. It’s a book I want to keep on my shelf to turn to whenever I want to be reminded that good does sometimes win.”
– Dunbar Campbell

“This book was so good I did something I never do. As soon as I was done, I reread it. My dad was a shipyard worker for over 45 years. Your book brought back such memories of his stories that when I finished, I cried for 20 minutes. Once again, thank you so much for the great memories about my dad. He ate lived and breathed Levingston Shipbuilding.”
– D. Reinhart
