Summary : NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The dramatic, untold history of the heroic women recruited by Britain’s elite spy agency to help pave the way for Allied victory in World War II “Gripping. Spies, romance, Gestapo thugs, blown-up trains, courage, and treachery (lots of treachery)—and all of it true.”—Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City and Dead Wake In 1942, the Allies were losing, Germany seemed unstoppable, and every able man in England was on the front lines. To “set Europe ablaze,” in the words of Winston Churchill, the Special Operations Executive (SOE), whose spies were trained in everything from demolition to sharpshooting, was forced to do something unprecedented: recruit women. Thirty-nine answered the call, leaving their lives and families to become saboteurs in France. In D-Day Girls, Sarah Rose draws on recently de­classified files, diaries, and oral histories to tell the thrilling story of three of these remarkable women. There’s Andrée Borrel, a scrappy and streetwise Parisian who blew up power lines with the Gestapo hot on her heels; Odette Sansom, an unhappily married suburban mother who saw the SOE as her ticket out of domestic life and into a meaningful adventure; and Lise de Baissac, a fiercely independent member of French colonial high society and the SOE’s unflap­pable “queen.” Together, they destroyed train lines, ambushed Nazis, plotted prison breaks, and gathered crucial intelligence—laying the groundwork for the D-Day invasion that proved to be the turning point in the war. Rigorously researched and written with razor-sharp wit, D-Day Girls is an inspiring story for our own moment of resistance: a reminder of what courage—and the energy of politically animated women—can accomplish when the stakes seem incalculably high. Praise for D-Day Girls “Rigorously researched . . . [a] thriller in the form of a non-fiction book.”—Refinery29 “Equal parts espionage-romance thriller and historical narrative, D-Day Girls traces the lives and secret activities of the 39 women who answered the call to infiltrate France. . . . While chronicling the James Bond-worthy missions and love affairs of these women, Rose vividly captures the broken landscape of war.”—The Washington Post “Gripping history . . . thoroughly researched and written as smoothly as a good thriller, this is a mesmerizing story of creativity, perseverance, and astonishing heroism.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Believing that Britain was locked in an existential battle, Winston Churchill had already created a secret agency, the Special Operations Executive (SOE), whose spies were trained in everything from demolition to sharpshooting. Their job, he declared, was to 'set Europe ablaze'. But with most men on the front lines, the SOE was forced to do something unprecedented: recruit women.

Summary : The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the American women who secretly served as codebreakers during World War II--a "prodigiously researched and engrossing" (New York Times) book that "shines a light on a hidden chapter of American history" (Denver Post). Recruited by the U.S. Army and Navy from small towns and elite colleges, more than ten thousand women served as codebreakers during World War II. While their brothers and boyfriends took up arms, these women moved to Washington and learned the meticulous work of code-breaking. Their efforts shortened the war, saved countless lives, and gave them access to careers previously denied to them. A strict vow of secrecy nearly erased their efforts from history; now, through dazzling research and interviews with surviving code girls, bestselling author Liza Mundy brings to life this riveting and vital story of American courage, service, and scientific accomplishment.

Summary : The Second World War is the bloodiest and deadliest conflict in history: more than 60 million people killed in six years of bitter fighting. For much of that time, Hitler's Germany and the Axis powers seemed invincible and Britons feared not only for their lives but for their country's freedom and future. By 1944 the Russian army had managed to turn back the German tide in the east. The Allies desperately needed to do the same in the west. Somehow they had to break out of barricaded Britain and put troops on to mainland Europe. Only by joining the Russian march on Berlin could Britain and America hope to secure a favourable peace. D-Day to Berlin: The Unfolding Story is a unique retelling of how this was done. From June 6 1944, when hundreds of thousands of Allied troops came ashore on five Normandy beaches, to May 2 1945, when the German army surrendered in Berlin, these dramatic and historic events are described as they happened and as they were told through the pages of The Daily Mirror. A truly remarkable era experienced as never before.

Summary : Twenty-five years after her passing, Audrey Hepburn remains the most beloved of all Hollywood stars, known as much for her role as UNICEF ambassador as for films like Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Several biographies have chronicled her stardom, but none has covered her intense experiences through five years of Nazi occupation in the Netherlands. According to her son, Luca Dotti, "The war made my mother who she was." Audrey Hepburn's war included participation in the Dutch Resistance, working as a doctor's assistant during the "Bridge Too Far" battle of Arnhem, the brutal execution of her uncle, and the ordeal of the Hunger Winter of 1944. She also had to contend with the fact that her father was a Nazi agent and her mother was pro-Nazi for the first two years of the occupation. But the war years also brought triumphs as Audrey became Arnhem's most famous young ballerina. Audrey's own reminiscences, new interviews with people who knew her in the war, wartime diaries, and research in classified Dutch archives shed light on the riveting, untold story of Audrey Hepburn under fire in World War II. Also included is a section of color and black-and-white photos. Many of these images are from Audrey's personal collection and are published here for the first time.

Summary : When sixteen-year old Jacey Adison's parents tell her they must move again, she has never questioned their life style. Until now...When Jacey was two, her parents fled the protection of their birthplace, the mystical dimension of Nemele. Leaving was the only solution her parents believed might allow them to keep their family together and alive. The Adisons have been running from a sect of iniquitous beings from Nemele who covet Jacey. Her parents have repressed their adversaries' relentless tracking efforts by not utilizing their own mystical powers. They have chosen to conceal themselves within the only realm they knew they'd be able to survive. They are living under their self-imposed powerless sanctions on Earth, which constitutes the nineteenth nation of Nemele. Her parents have never revealed their true identities to Jacey, consequently keeping her true lineage and unique birthright from her. Jacey's family has pretended to be non-magical humans as a ploy to prevent an ancient omnipotent entity from killing more innocent beings in its relentless quest to possess Jacey. Nemele's inhabitants have been the elemental architectural guides of a number of nations throughout the cosmos. As Elemental Governors, they've influenced the evolution of eighteen other realms throughout the galaxy. Air, earth, wind, fire and water are gifted to each member within the Nemelite Society. It is during their Awakening, or adolescent stage of development, that their talents emerge. Every legend, myth and folklore human beings have believed in and have worshiped since the beginning of time originate within Nemele. Representatives from each of the nineteen nations form the Guild of Elders, a federation to oversee and rule Nemele. From Greek Gods to shape -shifting dragons, all exist. Born as an anomaly, Jacey possesses rare abilities that both virtuous and corrupt entities seek to use as their own. Should either side prevail, Jacey may be the saviour or downfall of every world within Nemele's domains. Blindly thrust into life and death situations, Jacey learns of her true powers within her dreaming and conscious states.

Summary : I see myself as a person at war, and the battle is against evil, and the weapon I am using to defeat my adversary is the pen. My aim is to dispense, as much as I possibly can, the truth in regard to the nature of my nemesis. There is an expression which very much describes my present circumstance, and how I am able to do what I do; “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer”. I am quite literally in the trenches, on the battle field, surrounded by my enemy. Lives are lost every day in the mine field deployed by those who are sick and depraved beyond belief; ask any of those who witness the same as I, and you will, practically without exception, not be told anything about what they have seen and heard, or a claim will be made that they have seen or heard nothing.

Summary : When Girls Don't Tell a personal account of revictimization from child sexual abuse By Rev. Dr. Margaret Jamal "When Girls Don´t Tell" is an accounting of revictimization told candidly by a female minister who was compelled to reveal her own past experiences after counseling so many young women and girls in recovery programs regarding sexual abuse that started from childhood. She found that sharing her experiences helped to loose the bondage of silence that was festering anger, frustration and destructive behaviors in many of those that she sought to help. "When Girls Don´t Tell" sheds light on this growing problem (of child sexual abuse and revictimization) as well as offer solutions. It gives insight about some causes, symptoms and behaviors of those experiencing revictimization from child sexual abuse. This writing also addresses how many situations (of revictimization of child sexual abuse survivors) can be avoided altogether. In addition, "When Girls Don´t Tell" includes a section called "My Time to Tell" that readers can use to begin writing their own journal towards the path to healing from abuse. It allows those who are ready to disclose, the opportunity to express their own experiences. This can greatly help with the process of healing. Who should buy this book? Anyone who has been sexually abused or know someone who has been sexually abused. Anyone who works with women or girls because according to statistics at least 1 out of the 4 that you are servicing needs this help. If you are working with certain population, juvenile delinquents, etc. this percentage increases significantly. Anyone who works with men or boys, because they need to teach this population to understand the effects of sexual abuse that may be going on with their sisters, mothers, friends, spouses, etc. EVERY PARENT *View a You Tube short film based on the book.

When girls don't tell, many times it is the shame Or because they cannot name the thing to tell. What is it called? II. When girls don't tell, it could be that they're afraid Not knowing what would then be said By the hearer of their terror III. When girls don't tell, it's not because they want to hide it It certainly isn't due to pride They feel so low and sometimes dirty IV. When girls don't tell, many times they fear rejection They are afraid of harsh correction That the hurter warned would come... As much as I can recall my own revictimization experiences totaled nine times with nine different perpetrators from the age of four until I was twenty two years old. This writing explores the effects of several of those incidents.
