Mailbox Monday #278

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at To Be Continued, formerly The Printed Page, has a permanent home at its own blog.

To check out what everyone has received over the last week, visit the blog and check out the links.  Leave yours too.

Also, each week, Leslie, Vicki, and I will share the Books that Caught Our Eye from everyone’s weekly links.

Here’s what I received:

1.  Women of Valor: Polish Resisters to the Third Reich by Joanne D. Gilbert for review from Gihon River Press in Sept./Oct.

Women of Valor: Polish Resisters to the Third Reich provides a unique and inspiring perspective on the extraordinary Jewish and non- Jewish women who risked everything to defy the Nazis. In this highly readable and educational collection of true stories, educator, public-speaker and author Joanne D. Gilbert celebrates the heroines of World War II who not only fought the horrors of the Holocaust, but survived well into their 80s and 90s living lives of commitment to the human spirit and human rights.

What did you receive?

  • I can’t wait to see what you think of this one!

  • Wow! Another WWII historical novel. A very hot topic recently, though I’ve not seen one about Poland. Sounds like a good one.

    • I’m always looking for ones about places I haven’t read about extensively. The war affected so many different countries and cultures

  • The book should be EXCELLENT even though heartwrenching. Stephen sent it to me too.

    I have read a few other books for him. My favorite was Ursula’s Prism.

    Have a good reading week.
