As a part of the Thankfully Reading Weekend, Jenn at Jenn's Bookshelves asked what book we are most grateful for this year.
Wow, that's a hard one! There are so many great books that I've read this year, and I think that I learn a little bit from each one. But if I have to narrow it down to one book that made me stop and think, and be grateful for my life as it is today, it would have to be "A Train In Winter" by Caroline Moorhead.
This powerful book, about French Resistance women who were prisoners of the German Nazis, touched my heart and soul in a way not many books have. After reading of the hardships these brave women went through, it made me so grateful for the freedoms I have and the life I am privileged to live.
It's not light reading, but a moving true-life account of a horrendous time in our world's history.
Here is the link to my complete review of the book - http://www.garden-of-books.com/2012/11/book-blog-tour-stop-train-in-winter-by.html

Thanks, Jenn, for making me think about what I've read this year!
