Kindle Daily Deal: A Soldier's Wife (77% off)

Today's KDD is The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy
(Reduced 77% from yesterday's price of $8.54)
Today only: $1.99

The story of a young British wife living in the Channel Islands between England and France during its occupation by the Germans.

The product description:
As World War II closes on the small island of Guernsey, Vivienne faces sacrifices for her two young daughters, her mother-in-law, and herself. While her husband is off fighting the Nazis, Vivienne begins an unexpected love affair with a German soldier, greatly intensifying her struggle to keep her family safe.

Amazon reviewer M. Jacobsen's four-star review describes it as "A lovely, nuanced novel" saying, in part:

The crux of the novel is ultimately about the decisions we make in life. There are rarely right or wrong answers and Vivienne's life is no different. When the Nazis occupy Guernsey and requisition the house next door, Vivienne is faced with decisions that make us (and her) question our morals and values; what is right and wrong.  

I was never bored for a minute throughout this novel....the author kept me completely engaged. And just when I thought I had the plot figured out, things would change.
