It's a TwoFER!!

Hey Chicks!!


I've got a couple for you today so hang in okay?!








FROM AMAZON: Sophie Heller's family immigrated from Germany to Victory, a small town in Illinois, before WWII began. Now that the war has affected the town, the townspeople discriminate against Sophie and her family. When a train derails, it is an accident but the Heller family is blamed. Coming to Sophie's rescue is a teacher from the high school, and despite their cultural differences, a romance starts to bloom.





WHAT I THOUGHT: I don't think I've ever read a book or seen a story that actually sympathized with the German immigration to America during and post WWII. Yet it's very hard not to do exactly that while reading this very poignantly written story of Sophie and her family. This is such a sweet love story set against an engaging backdrop that I think you might have a hard time not getting swept away.This is a great one to curl up with on a rainy summer afternoon.

I have 5 copies to give away courtesy of Anna at Hatchette!!

To enter please leave a comment with your email and "Moon" in your comment!!





Evolution of A Sad Woman
FROM AMAZON:Five very different men - all strangers - are drawn together to solve a murder by an uncommon thread - the love of the same beautiful woman, Kizzy. When she is murdered, they pull their past into their present, their present explodes, and their future is filled with surprise and changed forever! When police detective Evan Picard, attorney William Newton, cabdriver Jimmy Smithson, former pro-football player turned used car salesman Tom Hastings and Father C.D. Casmiersky are forced together - personalities explode, tensions build and relationships develop. The ending to this chapter of their lives and to Kizzy's murder will have a surprise none of them will ever expect.


Gale was kind enough to stop by and give us a Guest Post:


Her enticing, mystical, jeweled, green eyes will prey upon them forever . . . .
Five very diverse men---all strangers---are brought together to solve a savage murder by an uncommon thread---the love of Kizzy, the most beautiful woman they have ever known. When she is murdered, they are forced to wrench their past into their present, their present erupts and their future is filled with astonishment and altered forever!
They are taken down a long, winding investigation into a world of dangerous people and deceit.
When police detective Evan Picard, attorney William Newton, cabdriver Jimmy Smithson, former pro-football player turned used car salesman Tom Hastings and Father C.D. Casmiersky are forced together---personalities explode, tensions build and relationships develop.

My 3 yr. old son is having issues with mooning the neighbourhood now that he's toilet-trained and forever losing his pants.

Amy, I LOVE stories set in the WWII era, and The MOON Looked Down sounds like one I'd really enjoy, especially based on your review. Thanks for letting us know about it.

I love to read about that time in history. In fact, I took a class in college on Hitler and Nazi Germany and that's what got me hooked. There's so much more to that era than most people have heard about.
