Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand: I'm not normally a fan of non-fiction, but this was highly recommended in the Kindle store. I can see why...I couldn't put it down. The story is more unbelievable than any fiction—they can't make this stuff up! It's about a man named Louis Zamperini, and follows him from his Olympiad days through World War II.

Little fairy houses made from old fairy tale books, tucked into the shelves with the rest....oooh, what fun that could be! A combination of altered art books, miniatures, and fairy and gnome sculptures from polyclay, with natural elements to make house details....
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand What a story, you will fall in love with the main character, Louis Zamparini - a Vet and Olympic Athlete. I never complain about doing a single push up or burpy. Hillenbrand is a fantastic story teller that weaves a story with details of specific events together to create a truly magical story. Another book club read and a great one!
