A Garland for Ashes: World War II, the Holocaust, and One Jewish Survivor's Long Journey to Forgiveness, by Hanna Zack Miley. (Still 0.99?)

"This sweet woman's account of her journey as a 6 year old on one of the last Kindertransports out of Germany through the realization that her parent's had been holocaust victims was very moving. Her writing is beautiful-- filled with meaningful metaphors and her journey into a ministry of understanding, remembrance and forgiveness of the German people is amazing." -- Amazon Reviewer

Torn from Her Homeland …
Her Parents Murdered …
How Could She Cope?

When little Hannelore (Hanna) Zack left Cologne, Germany, on a train bound for London as a seven-year-old M├Ądchen (young girl) on July 24, 1939, she had no way of knowing that she was part of the Kindertransport, an epic rescue effort that would save 10,000 Jewish children from Hitler’s Nazi regime by granting them safe passage to England. In the coming years, Hanna would learn the painful truth: after being stripped of their business, forced from their Zuhause (home), and deported to endure six months of inhumane conditions in the Lodz Ghetto, her parents were gassed in a brutally efficient killing operation in a remote forested area near Chelmno, Poland, on May 3, 1942. Written over a four-year period beginning when Hanna was about seventy-five years old, A Garland for Ashes is both a gripping detective story recounting the heartbreaking process of discovering her family’s fate and a poignant account of her journey from vengeful hatred to forgiveness and release from bitterness.

Vintage: A Novel, by Susan Gloss. (Still 1.99?)

"The vintage shop and walking neighborhoods of Madison, Wisconsin lead you right into the lives of the characters. Each vintage piece of clothing brings you into the delights & dilemmas of the memorable characters. The characters come from different generations, cultures, and occupations, but they are connected by their daily connections in the shop, the neighborhoods, and their care for one another. Once you start this book, you cannot put it down. It engages you and it is a wonderful book club selection." -- Amazon Reviewer

Vintage is Susan Gloss's sparkling debut novel in the vein of The Friday Night Knitting Club, centered around a Midwestern vintage clothing shop and and a group of women who eventually transform the store and each others' lives.

At Hourglass Vintage in Madison, Wisconsin, every item in the boutique has a story to tell . . . and so do the women who are drawn there.

Violet Turner has always dreamed of owning a shop like Hourglass Vintage. When she is faced with the possibility of losing it, she realizes that, as much as she wants to, she cannot save it alone.

Eighteen-year-old April Morgan is nearly five months along in an unplanned pregnancy when her hasty engagement is broken. When she returns the perfect 1950s wedding dress, she discovers unexpected possibilities and friends who won't let her give up on her dreams.

Betrayed by her husband, Amithi Singh begins selling off her old clothes, remnants of her past life. After decades of housekeeping and parenting a daughter who rejects her traditional ways, she fears she has nothing more ahead for her.

An engaging story that beautifully captures the essence of women's friendship and love, Vintage is a charming tale of possibility, of finding renewal and hope when we least expect it.

A Tapestry of Hope (Lights of Lowell Book #1), by Tracie Peterson. (Still free?)

"Jasmine is both at the same time, spoiled and willful as well as being brave and grown-up. In other words she is complex and her story will pull the reader in until the final page. Secondary characters are essential to the story and are wonderful additions. I look forward to the next book in this series and I highly recommend this read and these authors. " -- Amazon Reviewer
