This is a harrowing account of life on the receiving end of Hitlers orders.
Well narrated giving an insight into how low humanity stooped. A necessary but not comfortable read.

For the first time I feel I can learn French

A really good technique that builds confidence in your ability to learn a language. I have done both courses and will now go back and start from midway through the first course to cement what I’ve learnt.

Tres bien!

Seraph Black used to think that she was prepared for anything. She could last days without eating and she always walked away from the violent altercations with her father relatively unharmed. She survived working at the club and the drive to school every day in her mother's rust-bucket of a car...but it all changed when Noah and Cabe came bulldozing into her life, careless of the precious secrets they picked apart in their quest to take over her world. She was even less prepared for the mysterious Miro and Silas, and nothing could have prepared her for the bond. The connection.

A miscarriage of justice could have deadly consequences in this taut and pacey psychological thriller. She thought she knew everything about her sister. It seems she was wrong.... DC Jo Boden was 11 years old when her older sister, Sarah, was brutally murdered during her first year at university. Her boyfriend, Nathan Wade, was convicted of the killing. Now, 15 years later, Wade is being released on licence, and documentary filmmaker Briony Rowe says she can prove his innocence....

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.

There are three things you should know about Elsie. The first is that she's my best friend. The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better. And the third...might take a little bit more explaining. Eighty-four-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly like a man who died 60 years ago?

Great to read a book from a forgotten demographic.

The characters of Flo, Elsie and Jack will touch a cord with most of us. I did guess the twist but the flow of the story and the characters makes this a 5 star read.
