The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff
The Kommandant's Girl

themummy85, April 25, 2007

A very compelling read about Emma, a Jewish girl, posing as Anna, a gentile girl, to help the resistance find out the Nazi plans for the Jewish ghetto in Krakow. Author Jenoff weaves her spell taking you into the horrors of Nazi Poland while sustaining the main characters to make them heroic in their often futile struggles for survival and justice.

They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys from Sudan by Benson Deng
They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky: The True Story of Three Lost Boys from Sudan

themummy85, April 5, 2007

A moving account of three very young heroes walking great distances to survive a terribly chaotic war in Sudan. I undertand the sad plight of the Sudanese much better now.

Brookland: A Novel by Emily Barton
Brookland: A Novel

themummy85, April 1, 2007

At one point while reading Brookland, I was so enjoying it, I realized I may have a new favorite author. Barbara Kingsolver has been at the top for quite a while. Emily Barton's narrative style, attention to historical detail, and plot complexity make for a totally engaging and compelling read. I have a much more solid feel for the unjust necessity of a man having to take credit for a woman's creativity. How often has this sort of thing happened throughout history?
