We’ve reached it — the end of the alphabet. And the book of the day…
the zookeeper’s wife
by Diane Ackerman
This was the second letter which sent me shopping for a book to fit. And I’m glad I selected this one.
We’re ending with non-fiction. The story centers around the director of the Warsaw and his family during WWII. It puts the emphasis on a different group of people than previous Poland during WWII books I’ve read.
The director’s home, still functioning after the initial bombing raids, becomes a refuge with a rotating population. All of whom must be protected, sheltered, and fed. Not an easy task during Nazi occupation.
Available from on-line retailers, bookstores, and libraries. Also watch for the movie.
Thank you for roaming around my home bookshelves on a jaunt through the alphabet. I hope that you’ve found at least one new read to enjoy among the history, biography, classic fiction, and romance fiction featured in recent months.
