Thanks again to Bookworm-lady for sharing this book with me. It covered so much more than the movie -as is usually the case - going back to the West Computers being hired during WWII. It's as much a story of segregation, women's rights and the civil rights era in the American south as it is a story of the individual women. There were times that I could have used a list of "characters" to keep everyone straight; but other than that, I enjoyed it.
