Fate Of The Children: Holocaust Confessions Of A Reluctant Nazi

by David Matheny

A young Jew interviews an old Nazi about the intense debate among German soldiers, officers, and commanders over the fate of ninety Jewish children in 1941.

A young Jewish documentary producer is obsessed with the holocaust story of Bila Tserkva.

In 1941, the Germans rounded up and killed the adults and older children. The shooting bothered the soldiers. They had a harder time with the remaining ninety children. The children were held in a building while chaplains and officers took it higher up the chain for a decision on killing the children.

The young filmmaker found an old German living in the South with his great niece. He offered to watch the old man during the day if he could interview him.

The story leaked out to the young man's friends in Hollywood and a film star was interested. The young man fought to keep them away from what he thought was a story that needed to be told in a factual way.

As he interviewed the old German, he got an inside look into the minds of the soldiers as they debated the fate of the children.

He got insight into the relationship of two soldiers who were bound together through love and hate. Not even twenty years old, one was a feared killer, the other was an easily dismissed compassionate man. Together, the two Germans fought, killed, drank and debated. The two young men personified the ease and struggle, the pleasure and pain, the horror and delight of hating and killing Jews.

All of this came out in the old man's story along with a powerful love story between a German soldier and a beautiful Jewish woman, who was known as "the woman in the window."

In the present day, the young filmmaker fell in love with the old German's great niece. Together, they struggled with the moral and ethical dilemmas unfolding as the blanket of inhumanity was lifted to reveal a bit of humanity inside one of the horrible episodes of the holocaust.

Grover's Creek: A Christmas Fantasy

by Bobby Underwood

Grover’s Creek is a wonderfully nostalgic and unabashedly sentimental Christmas fantasy. Filled with Americana and imbued with the longing most of us feel for a better time in our shared history, there is something universal in Nick’s story of disillusionment with the present woes of the world. Searching for something more than his life as a crime photographer for a major paper in a metropolitan city has given him, what he finds can only be described as a Christmas miracle. A town steeped in the past, no longer on any map, and barely remembered, may hold the key to his future if he can find the faith and courage to accept what most would find beyond belief. Gentle and old-fashioned, Grover's Creek is a story of love and miracles, for those who still believe both are possible.

The Oblivious Heiress: A Jane Carter Historical Cozy (Book Four) (Jane Carter Historical Cozy Mysteries 4)

by Alice Simpson

Jane has her hands full getting out the inaugural issue of her very own Carter's All-Story Weekly Magazine, but she still finds time to investigate the activities of a cagey heiress, an attempted murder, and a band of sailors with mysterious matching tattoos. About the Jane Carter Historical Cozy Mystery Series:This quirky historical cozy mystery series is set in the fictional American city of Greenville during the 1920s and features Jane Carter, a young widow who returns home to live with her father after the tragic death of her journalist husband. Jane’s father owns a local newspaper and wants Jane to take it over someday, but Jane is adamant that she has no desire to be a reporter. Instead, she turns her talent for writing to concocting melodramatic romances for fly-by-night rags who almost never pay on time. Jane claims that she's holding out for a millionaire before she marries again, but the only man who makes her heart beat faster is Jack, a reporter on her father's staff. Not only has Jane vowed she will never be a newspaperman herself, she's doubly insistent on never again marrying one. While trying to turn out enough column inches of overwrought romantic bilge to keep her old car on the road, and herself in shoes, Jane runs into the most extraordinary circumstances. In Jane's madcap world, it's a constant round of kidnappings, curses, stolen jewels, counterfeit paintings, and hidden stashes of gold. There's plenty of crime to go around, but nary a murder.Accompanying Jane on her adventures is her best friend, Florence. Jane and Flo may get into one perilous situation after another, but they are never damsels in distress, because, as Jane puts it, "A real lady always carries her own pocket knife." All this getting into harm's way alarms her father's housekeeper, Mrs. Timms. Mrs. Timms believes it's her mission in life to turn motherless Jane into a proper lady, but seeing as Jane has just turned twenty-four, Mrs. Timms considerable efforts appear to have been in vain. However, the housekeeper won't give up trying, just as Jane won't give up on seeing Mrs. Timms and her father center-aisling it to the altar and saying, "I do."This series is adapted from Mildrid Wirt’s Penny Parker mysteries, which have fallen out of copyright. The author has made extensive alterations and additions to both the characters and plots of the original novels, but readers familiar with Ms. Wirt’s stories will notice many similarities. These are murderless mysteries. Despite a constant crime wave, there seem to be no murders in the city of Greenville. There may be plenty of peril in the form of kidnappings, heists, and the occasional assault, but nobody ever dies, and justice is always served. If you like light-hearted historical mysteries with quirky characters and a bit of zany humor, this may be the series for you!This series may be of interest to fans of: Lee Strauss (Ginger Gold Mysteries), Jaqueline Winspear (Masie Dobbs Mysteries), Patricia Wentworth (Miss Silver Mysteries), Jessica Ellicot (Berl and Edwina Mysteries Series), Clara Benson, L. B. Hathaway (Posie Parker Mysteries), Leighann Dobbs (Hazel Martin Mysteries), T. E. Kinsey (Lady Hardcastle Mysteries), Margarete Addison (Rose Simpson Mysteries), Emily Organ (Penny Green Mysteries), and the Phryne Fisher Mystery Series. Readers who enjoy the works of Alexander McCall Smith, Tarquin Hall, Ashley Weaver, Frances Brody, Maia Chance, Radha Vatsal, Shea MacLeod, Alyssa Maxwell, Sabrina Flynn, Vivian Conroy, and Anita Davison may also enjoy this series of gentle mystery stories set in the roaring twenties.
