This month's Mailbox Monday blog tour is hosted by Savvy Verse & Wit.
Check out the blog and post all the new books you acquired last week.
Life got in the way and I missed a couple MMs. I am going to school one day a week and my class falling on a Monday is really putting a damper my Monday posting. Luckily, today is a bank holiday (Happy Columbus Day!!) so I have the whole day off before I have to get to my night class. Here is what I have snagged in the last two weeks.
Shadows Walking by Douglas R. Skopp (for review on blog tour)
From author's website:
Johann Brenner, an idealistic physician and ardent German nationalist, has joined the Nazi Party and willingly participated in its "crimes against humanity." His Jewish childhood friend, Philipp Stein, has also become a doctor. Their lives inevitably intersect until their last, fateful meeting.
After the war, Brenner, with stolen papers and a new name, has become a janitor in the courthouse where the Nuremberg Trials are being held. Hoping to "heal himself" and wishing to begin a new life with his estranged wife, he decides that he must write her a letter telling what he has done and why.
Brenner's letter sets the theme for each chapter of Shadows Walking. Through his letter, we see him admit his choices and their consequences as he slips deeper and deeper into the brutality of the Third Reich.
