Finally finished my puzzle no thanks to my helper.
Exciting day-we went to a book sale this afternoon. Outdoors at our church, masked and distanced, but great to see people in person and not on a screen. We donated a bunch of books, so we now have some much needed shelf space. Of course we didn‘t leave without picking up some books😄 This was one of my choices
This story was written in a dual timeline that was easy to follow (which is not always the case). A lot of people do things to get by during a war that they wouldn‘t during peace. This story follows one woman as she learns about what her mother endured during the war and the truths her mother never wanted to tell her.
#MayMovieMagic This may be an #unpopularopinion but according to my GoodReads I gave this book only 2 stars. I recall it‘s about the lengths a mother is willing to go to in order to save herself and her daughter set during WWII. #SaveMe
Great read about a single mother named Anna and how she was forced to become the mistress of a German SS officer during WWII. The story tells how Anna carried this shame with her the rest of her life and unintentionally passed her shame onto her child.
This was a slow burn of a novel, quietly portraying another side of Nazi Germany during the war. As a single mother, what would you do in order to stay alive & protect your daughter? Sad, but thought-provoking.
The Second World War may have ceased more than 71 years ago, claimed over 60 million lives, but my recent fascination with the period has reflected in my choice of fiction reads. Here are a few which I have read and loved, some on my TBR and others on my to-buy list. #amiwrong in enjoying and loving these books that depict betrayal, love, friendship, loss, survival, sacrifice, hope and sadness in the shadow of war??
For this #recommendsday I chose this amazing novel about WWII. A story about doing what you have to in order to survive. This book brought with it a lot of moral conversation. It has stayed with me during the six years since I've read it.
