    The It Girls by Karen Harper is a 2017 William Morrow Paperbacks publication. I love historical fiction, and thought this novel, centered around Elinor and Lucy Sutherland, might be an interesting tale.

    Interesting story, but I found the writing tiresome. The characters spend way too much time explaining relationships, locations, and events to each other for the reader's sake. This made for very cumbersome dialogue at times, especially when information was repeated and the character then said somet...
