Birds Without Wings – Louis de Bernieres


It takes a village to truly depict the horrors of war and its aftermath. Birds Without Wings is set in one village of Turkey where Christian and Muslim families have lived and loved for centuries, with mutual respect and affection. All is well until the fall of the Ottoman Empire and WWI sweep everyone into the void of death and destruction. We see trench warfare through the eyes of a young villager who takes his father’s place when the recruiters come and that personal view is much more devastating than any general account of war could be. largely because we come to feel that the village is ours, that the inhabitants are our friends and neighbors. We see the destruction of the village after...

The Inspiring Muse Award - lg size
#JIRogers #IndieAuthor #Inspiration #Muse #Award #Blog #Poet #Share #Motivation #Writing #Art #AwesomeAuthor @ ChrissyH_07 The Brief History of ‘The Inspiring Muse Award’ I’ve been ‘Shamelessly Promoting Someone Else’ for as many years as I’ve been online and I decided to take it one-step further. Despite the internet’s reputation for trolls, I’ve found that I interact with a brilliant collection of people on a daily basis. Each offers a gift whether it’s art, knowledge, a story, or just a well-timed joke. I wanted a way to thank them for inspiring me that was more permanent than a typed ‘thank you’. This is a personal award that I bestow on people who I feel are excellent examples of differ...

Malala’s Magic Pencil – Malala Yousafzai


  I bought this book for my granddaughter and fell in love with it. Malala’s life story is brilliantly rendered for children, but it is the illustrations that captured my heart. They are delicate and evocative with the power to break your heart. Blurb: As a child in Pakistan, Malala made a wish for a magic pencil that she could use to redraw reality. She would use it to give gifts to her family, to erase the smell from the rubbish dump near her house, to sleep an extra hour in the morning. As she grew older, Malala wished for bigger and bigger things. She saw a world that needed fixing. And even if she never found a magic pencil, Malala realized that she could still work hard every day to ma...

Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree – Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani and Viviana Mazza


  Remember Boko Harem? Perhaps not as they have fallen off the media radar. But guaranteed the girls captured, the families left behind, and those surviving in a world destroyed have not forgotten. Written in two parts, this book captures the horror and the strength of individuals to survive against all odds. Part one tells the story in novel form from the point of view of one of the girls captured. Part two is a non-fiction narrative of the authors’ research to write the story and presents evidence from individuals and families they interviewed. Blurb: A new pair of shoes, a university degree, a husband—these are the things that a girl dreams of in a Nigerian village. And with a government ...

A Gentleman in Moscow – Amor Towles


  I relished every page of this book and every character. Count Alexander Rostov is sentenced to house arrest in the Hotel Metropol in Moscow. It is through his eyes and heart that we watch the historical events reaging through the country from the 1920s to the 1950s. For all those years the Count could not leave the hotel. Reading the book, I was entranced to be there with him. BLURB In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room...
