This is a different kind of history book, one told, not by historians, but by the families of the veterans of World War II. Here they tell the stories that have never been heard. Stories that the veterans told only to their wives and children; stories so personal, so touching, and so real that it will change the way you look at the war and change the way you see the men and women of the greatest generation.

Soldiers’ Stories: A Collection of World War II Memoirs opens our eyes to the reality of war and opens our hearts to these soldiers in a way that can only be seen through the eyes of the people who loved them.

This is a beautiful book in so many ways. You won’t be able to put it down and you will never forget it. Additional links

Academy Award winning film producer Jonathan Sanger has once again given us a provocative tale that reaches audiences at the core of their heart, only this time his medium is print instead of film. His book “Making the Elephant Man: A Producer’s Memoir” gives us an insider’s look at the creation of one of the first ever indie films and a box-office smash, as well as a peek into the early careers of movie greats David Lynch, Mel Brooks and Anthony Hopkins.

Lakewood is an enchanted place, composed of 40 acres in the North Carolina Piedmont. Privately owned, you once needed an invitation to see the miraculous seven-acre lake that was built by hand with mules and men during WWII, to gaze upon the beaver, otters, fish and other wildlife that call Lakewood home, or to stay in the little stone cottage with spectacular views. But now author Reggie Hill has opened it for all of us to enjoy, through his book Lakewood: Reggie and Anita’s Camelot, a Gift from God. Christian/ non-fiction

Fall in love with India and the bustling city of Mumbai in Ajay Kaul’s book of short stories, Mumbai Matinee, truth-based fiction that acts as both memoir and travelogue. Mumbai Matinee portrays the veritable feast of the commerce, people, and danger which make up India’s most populous city and financial capital. Filled with eight interconnected short stories based on Kaul’s life and work there, this charming book is a terrific pleasure read and highly recommended if you plan to visit.

This book was written primarily for those young people, both boys and girls and their parents and/or mentors who, for whatever reason, believe they have no chance at a successful life. This book is the story about a young boy who believed he was in that category while growing up. That little boy changed those odds and ultimately did many things that most people cannot even dream of. Dick was expected to work twelve- to fourteen-hour days every day until he left home to join the air force when he was seventeen years old. By the grace of God, Dick somehow graduated from high school since he never once, in twelve years, ever had any time to do homework. Dick’s very best childhood friend was his Dog King who is on the cover of this Book. Without King, Dick’s childhood would have been very, very difficult, for they were always together. Life was about to change dramatically when Dick joined the air force when he was seventeen years old. The title of the book, “Destiny,” is very appropriate since it was at that time when destiny played a major role in Dick’s life. Dick should have never passed his induction physical due to an unknown severe bundle branch blockage in his heart, but he did; he should have never been accepted in the Air Force’s air weather school, but he was, graduating forty-third out of a class total of 187. He remained in the air force for a total of four years. In his book, Dick discusses many more pivotal events where destiny played a major role. non-fiction/historical
