Praise for The Factory Voice:
“The Factory Voice, set in Fort William, Ontario (now part of Thunder Bay), in the midst of the Second World War, is so much fun to read, with such an inventive and entertaining premise, that I can imagine it as a great television series...Lynes has a great talent for bringing idiosyncratic characters to life while capturing wartime atmosphere, vernacular and anxiety...the entire story reads like a radio drama of the time...a rollicking good tale....Instead of giving us a laboured account and biography of McGill [Canada’s first woman aeronautical engineer] [Lynes] invented an entertainment in the form of this inspired book.”
