The Austrian: A War Criminal’s Story.

This is not the sort of book I would normally read. I detest war and anything that reminds me of its bleakness. However, when I realized the main character was on the flip side of so many other heroes we read about in war stories and catch as movies, I thought this might be a good study of human nature. In presenting her point of view on what the whole world considered to be the villains in WWII, Ellie Midwood did not disappoint.

The dichotomy between Ernst as a young man and Dr. Ernst Kaltenbrunner is well pulled together and researched in depth.61brjiazycl-_ux250_

I must admit, when I first began to read, I was more interested in the goings on in Nuremberg prison than I was in early flashbacks. Yet as the chapters flew by, I began to seek out those flashbacks to understand the man behind the villain. As someone who understands how villains in a war are the ones who lost the war, as depicted throughout time, and how any humans gathering in fear can bring on ignominies of inexplicable horrors, I must say I loved the character studies I encountered in the book.  ( You can check out Ellie Midwood’s amazon page: Ellie Midwood

I especially loved the speech Ernst makes to one of the MP officers while he is incarcerated when he foretells the election of a man like Hitler in the United States. The parallels are as interesting as they are chillingly real. I also loved Ernst ongoing love for Annalise and how Melita helped him find his wings. The story is not a common one, but a story worth the read: anything about our past is worth remembering if only to help us avoid reigniting the same errors.

Reparation: A spiritual Journey

I enjoyed this book. I recognized a lot of the same situations I experienced while growing up in a very Catholic Family. A journey in the form of a memoir is a very personal recount of a person’s life. I found Maria Hall portrayed her story with poignancy, humility and was able to keep 51KWnfpF62L._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_me hooked until the end. Of course, would I have loved to read more about the controversy of the Seville Schism within the Church. Yes. However, this story concerned our heroine and not the politics of why these events occurred or who was at the heart of the controversy or what became of the politics behind the scene.

I loved the journey itself of her relationship with her family, and was happy that the immense sacrifice she felt she needed to endure for reparation was well worth the wait. There is joy to be shared when even one of us finds our way to reuniting our spiritual and physical selves as one entity.81A5xy-7YbL._UX250_ A must read to open our thoughts and become more enlightened. God job! To find out more about Maria Hall, simply click on her name and you will reach her Amazon page.

Book Reviews, Other News: Serpent of the Shangrove

Serpent of the Shangrove

This story kept me reading into the small hours of the morning. Gripping story, with a good development of characters, I grew fond of Raven, the 515YQNcwL-Lfemale protector who is as much a mother as she is a warrior.

I felt C. N. Lesley expressed the Drakkens’ pain well with the telling of Connor’s mishap, Cooper’s struggles to become a man and in Rosella’s coming of age learning compassion in a harsh and horrible manner.

Their world is not an easy one with conflict waiting around every bend. Serpent of the Shangrove is a story which will also reflect today’s times and bring into our world, food for thought. After all, most people will find preferable to learning any lesson we encounter along the way in a more tasteful manner—prevention being the ounce we can take. Well done!
