Where The Stepping Stones Lead is a work of fiction in the historical and personal drama sub-genres and was penned by author L.E. Hutchinson. Set in Washington D.C. during the United States’ involvement in the First World War, we meet young Gracie in 1917 as she prepares for a new life working in the Department of War. Mr. and Mrs. Clark take her in and help her out during the housing shortage, and so begins Gracie’s struggles to adjust to a new way of living and the many challenges and surprises she will find along the way. As the war comes to its close, we see a journey of personal transformation and identity taking place.
Author L.E. Hutchinson has crafted a delightful work filled with the many ups and downs of a difficult life, but it is inspiring in the figure of an ambitious young woman doing some good for her country. In Gracie, readers will find an affable and initially naïve heroine who grows with and is shaped by the plot of the novel, which makes great use of the conditions of America during World War One. I thought the dialogue was a particularly authentic element that gave a strong historical feel to the work, landing us in different times where the roles of men and women were starting to truly shift and adapt to diverse circumstances. Overall, I would recommend Where The Stepping Stones Lead as an emotive work that encompasses true-life drama and is written with authentic historical style and flair.
