Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week.
It was created by Marcia @ A Girl and Her Books but now has a permanent home here
The Kindle summer sale started on Friday, I was good and only got The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy. Just as well as there are still a few unread on my kindle from last year's summer sale, and possibly even from the one before that!
As World War II draws
closer and closer to Guernsey, Vivienne de la Mare knows that there will
be sacrifices to be made. Not just for herself, but for her two young
daughters and for her mother-in-law, for whom she cares while her
husband is away fighting. What she does not expect is that she will fall
in love with one of the enigmatic German soldiers who take up residence
in the house next door to her home. As their relationship intensifies,
so do the pressures on Vivienne. Food and resources grow scant, and the
restrictions placed upon the residents of the island grow with each
passing week. Though Vivienne knows the perils of her love affair with
Gunther, she believes that she can keep their relationship and her
family safe. But when she becomes aware of the full brutality of the
Occupation, she must decide if she is willing to risk her personal
happiness for the life of a stranger.
