AS I AM NOW CO-HOSTING EXPLORING MY BOOKS WITH ADDLEPATES AND BOOK NERDS, OUR TOPIC THIS WEEK IS
A BOOK based during war time.
As the sixth of June is the anniversary of D-Day, I decided the topic for this week to be a book based during war time. The book I’ve chosen from my shelves is Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene. This book is a beautiful story, that I vaguely remember as it has been so long. I do remember loving the story though! While not a war book per say, it concerns POW from Nazi Germany.
Summer of My German Soldier BY Bette Greene
“Minutes before the train pulled into the station in Jenkinsville, Arkansas, Patty Bergen knew something exciting was going to happen. But she never could have imagined that her summer would be so memorable. German prisoners of war have arrived to make their new home in the prison camp in Jenkinsville. To the rest of her town, these prisoners are only Nazis. But to Patty, a young Jewish girl with a turbulent home life, one boy in particular becomes an unlikely friend. Anton relates to Patty in ways that her mother and father never can. But when their forbidden relationship is discovered, will Patty risk her family and town for the understanding and love of one boy?“
