Discounted & Free Bestselling Ebooks

AND

G.J. Berger, best selling and prize winning historical fiction author, and my colleague in Writer's Choice (that's our writers' historical fiction publishing co-operative) is skiting away about the success of his mother's memoir, 'To Steal a Moment's Time'. It's been hitting the best seller lists. His mother was Katharina Berger, a most sought-after stage and film actress in Germany at the outbreak of WWII. I can genuinely recommend it as a fascinating read.

'To Steal a Moment's Time'

AND

Another book I've just enjoyed is an Australian historical novel set during the 1930s and 1940s.

Called 'Limberlost' by Robbie Arnott it's a gentle, thoughtful read. Alas it is expensive but cheapest at Kobo.com

Stay safe, stay well and happy reading

Pratchett gets better and better. Here he is again pointing out humanity's stupidities: racial prejudice,snobbish beliefs in superiority, why the rule of just law is important and why violence breeds violence, yet all done with humour.
