A few months ago I stumbled upon a website called bookmooch.com. I hope everyone will check it out. It's a great website but still very unknown. I swear you won't regret it!!
Barring that, what books do you like that have the same feel as Barbara Michael's books? I'm always looking for new finds!
Thank you thank you! I'm sorry to make such a dumb request of you all.
Tomorrow is my birthday, so tomorrow is the last day for the Birthday Book Giveaway Extravaganza. The excitement is building to a fever pitch!

Currently Reading: The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman
Books read this year: 39
Day After Night is based on the extraordinary true story of the October 1945 rescue of more than two hundred prisoners from the Atlit internment camp, a prison for "illegal" immigrants run by the British military near the Mediterranean coast south of Haifa. The story is told through the eyes of four young women at the camp with profoundly different stories. All of them survived the Holocaust: Shayndel, a Polish Zionist; Leonie, a Parisian beauty; Tedi, a hidden Dutch Jew; and Zorah, a concentration camp survivor. Haunted by unspeakable memories and losses, afraid to begin to hope, Shayndel, Leonie, Tedi, and Zorah find salvation in the bonds of friendship and shared experience even as they confront the challenge of re-creating themselves in a strange new country.
This is an unforgettable story of tragedy and redemption, a novel that reimagines a moment in history with such stunning eloquence that we are haunted and moved by every devastating detail. Day After Night is a triumphant work of fiction.
