By G.C. Wakefield, Edited by Amy Hagberg... In 1943, evil wears a long leather coat and red swastikas and spreads terror throughout the world as members of the Danish Resistance find themselves in a vortex of violence and espionage, constantly matching wits with the ruthless German Gestapo. The Resistance convinces twenty-eight- year-old Danish war widow Margo Schoenemann to go undercover in a race to prevent the Nazis from obtaining vital atomic research from world-renowned atomic physicist Niels Bohr and to thwart the Gestapo's efforts to destroy the Danish underground. A waitress at a diner frequented by the Nazis, she can cultivate important contacts. To secure the future of Denmark, she works for the Gestapo by day, and the Resistance by night. As the contest reaches its climax, the patriot's only hope rests in a fearless group of Allied airmen who would become known as the Gestapo Hunters. It falls to RAF officer Ted Grayson to overcome personal tragedy and lead a handful of daring airmen on a climatic raid to rescue Resistance leaders and to crush the Gestapo threat in Denmark.

HALF THE SKY by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. This is a very important book. It is the only book about oppression of WOMEN in Asia and Africa, so far that I have read, that gives the work of women turning the oppression into opportunity for them to create economic independence for them and for all women of the region. Every book on the same subject I’ve read just described the horrors. But this is about the women fighting back successfully without bloodshed! The title, taken from a Chinese proverb, says it all: “Women hold up half the sky.” This book is different from others about gender oppression: It illustrates how women in Africa and Asia are leading a courageous, strong crusade. It is a story of empowerment. We can learn from their wisdom. This book takes a sad song and makes it better, so to speak.
