Currently reading this book, "Crossing the Borders of Time" and loving every second of it. I'm learning so much about the ways France was affected by the war. Can't wait to see how it ends. GREAT writing and historical background!
A couple of other must-reads:
"Women Heroes of WWII" is a variety of short stories, most of which are derived from other, more detailed books. Utterly fascinating. You can pick this up and put it down since it's full of short stories.
And my favorite so far...."Unbroken." If you haven't read this book, you need to. I can't even begin to explain all of the incredible lessons I learned from this story. It takes place in the Pacific theater of the war and my eyes were opened to new horrors I never knew existed during the fighting with Japan. WOW.
I hope you get to enjoy diving into a good book - what a great gift to yourself!!
Have a happy day!!
