The Operator by Gretchen Berg
Nobody knows the people of Wooster, Ohio, better than switchboard operator Vivian Dalton. She calls it intuition. Her teenage daughter, Charlotte, calls it eavesdropping. Vivian and the other women who work at Bell aren’t supposed to listen in on conversations, but they do. Then, one cold December night, Vivian listens in on a call between that snob Betty Miller and someone whose voice she can’t quite place and hears something shocking. Betty Miller’s mystery friend has news that, if true, will shatter Vivian’s tidy life in Wooster, humiliating her and making her the laughingstock of the town. Vivian may be mortified, but she isn’t going to take this lying down. She’s going to get to the bottom of that rumor. But as Vivian is about to be reminded, in a small town like Wooster, one secret usually leads to another.
