Rate this:
Deputy sheriff Constance Kopp is outraged to see young women brought into the Hackensack jail over dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. The strong-willed, patriotic Edna Heustis, who left home to work in a munitions factory, certainly doesn't belong behind bars. And sixteen-year-old runaway Minnie Davis, with few prospects and fewer friends, shouldn't be publicly shamed and packed off to a state-run reformatory. But such were the laws--and morals--of 1916. Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and defend these women when no one else will. But it's her sister Fleurette who puts Constance's beliefs to the test and forces her to reckon with her own ideas of how a young woman should and shouldn't behave. Against the backdrop of World War I, and drawn once again from the true story of the Kopp sisters, Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions is a spirited, page-turning story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.

Another fine addition to this series. Some disturbing parallels to today.

The third installment in the Kopp Sisters series is my favorite so far - funny, smart, quick-moving, and feminist from start to finish. You can absolutely read this without reading the prior books, but they're great fun, too.

Not as good as the second installment, but a satisfying holiday read. If the descriptors: 'well-researched historical fiction,' 'light vacation read,' and 'early gender rights movement' could ever be reasonably applied to the same works, that would well-summarize this series.

The story of the Kopp sisters just keeps getting better. The integration of WWI factory work and the laws surrounding young women of the time was so interesting and unexpected. You can tell that Stewart does her homework, and doesn't shy away from a research challenge. As a historian, I really appreciated this. And, as with all of the Kopp Sisters novels, I enjoyed the appendices as much as the book itself. Thankful for another thoughtful work of historical fiction from Stewart.
