After the death of both of her parents, Hannah Gregory is left to care for her two younger sisters, Charlotte and Tessa. All of her dreams of becoming a lawyer seem so distant now after financial problems force her to drop out of law school. She notices an advertisement in the paper for a "Hello Girl" to connect phone calls, and immediately begins training. But Hannah has never been one to follow the rules, and there seems to be quite a few rules that go along with her job. Will she be able to follow orders for her sisters' sake?
Meanwhile, Western Union employees have been on strike, resulting in several explosions around the city. Hannah is horrified to learn that her good friend Walt has been falsely accused of the crimes. Walt's mother begs Hannah to represent Walt in court, but Hannah knows she can't do it on her own. Against her better judgement, she seeks out the help of Lincoln Cole. The man who took away the only home Hannah and her sisters had ever known. But she will swallow her pride if it means helping Walt. She certainly would never have expected falling for Mr. Cole.
I thought "When Love Calls" was a sweet love story wrapped up into historical fiction. It kept my attention from the very beginning! I rate it as 5 stars!
