On My Honor
On My Honor by Patty Smith Hall is the eighth book in the multi-author Heroines of WWll series. Ginny Mathis is the leader of her younger sisters’ Girl Scout Troop. The girls keep a look-out for suspicious activity along the coast of their small North Carolina island. Ginny helps the girls deal with the life lessons thrust upon them during a time of war. I enjoyed the camaraderie and friendship of this small band of girls. There was a small amount of suspense through-out the story; with a sweet romance for Ginny.
I received this book from Celebrate-Lit for my honest review.

Did you know that the Girl Scouts (or Girl Guides) serviced as spies on HIs Majesty’s Secret Service during World War One? I didn’t either until I picked up a book on female spies at my local Barnes and Noble. There were only two paragraphs about how the girls worked with the MI5 for the duration of the war. It was enough to get my heart pumping!
Being a former Girl Scout myself, I was amazed at what these young girls did to help our country during the war. What activities did the Girl Scouts/Girl Guides do in World War II? Anything asked of them. They organized drives for anything from fat (to make bullets) to paper, stepped into positions left vacant by men serving on the front and worked Victory gardens to provide food for their community. They did so many things, I can’t begin to name them all here. By March 1944, the Girl Scouts had provided over 15 million volunteer hours toward the war effort.
Isn’t that amazing? No wonder I had to write a book about them!
