This week I'm starting Wolfsangel by Liza Perrat as part of France Book Tours. I'll be writing a full review on November 16 so come back to see what I think about it. The book, set in rural France, focuses on Celeste Roussel who still feels guilty over her actions during the World War II when she fell in love with a German soldier and had to choose between the conquering army and the French resistance.
Here's the intro:
We gather in the cemetery, before the ossuary, with the straggle of other remaining survivors and their families. Our heads dipped, the mayor begins his memorial speech to commemotrate the tragedy that became a legend around these parts; the evil that part of me still believes was the result of my own reckless actions.
Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Open to a random page of your current read and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Here's my teaser from page 4% on my Kindle:
I gave Olivier a small smile of admiration, wishing I too could summon the strength to stand up against my own mother. Like the war that raged across Europe, I ached to flee the smaller-scale battle that had entangled my mother and me for as far back as I could remember.I look forward to seeing what everyone else is reading.
