Summer reading time! I love reading novels and mostly read them at bed time. They help me turn off my thinking mind and slip into another world. But summer gives me the chance to kick back and chill on a blanket in the park.
As a girl, I was kinda obsessed with World War II. I just couldn’t understand how all that terrible stuff could happen, right in the heart of Germany, with people just standing by and allowing it all to transpire. Reading Stones from the River by Ursula Hegi gave me answers to that question. A heartbreaking book filled with touching characters, this novel set before, during and after WWII gives a window into the world of the everyday person living in a small German town.
