Information: 

The year is 1533. Elsbeth Joris is about to be executed for witchcraft when Andreas Wagner cuts her loose from the ducking stool. Exiled from family and village, Elsbeth accepts Andreas’s offer to accompany him back to his home in Münster, Germany—a decision that plunges her into a world of unhinged prophets, sassy nuns, and a deranged charlatan king. A disillusioned former monk, Andreas is returning home to confront his past, but the city is on the brink of collapse. Crowds rave hysterically in the streets, churches are ransacked, convents and monasteries empty, sacred texts are burned, and polygamy is instituted as God’s law. To his surprise, Andreas finds that Ulrich Schlatter, a former nemesis, has also returned, seeking revenge on those who exiled him years ago. Stakes are raised for everyone when the Prince-Bishop of Westphalia calls mercenaries to besiege the city. The rebels, however, offer unexpected resistance, thwarting hopes for a quick victory. Finding refuge with one another and new friends in the ensuing struggle, Elsbeth and Andreas discover that love in the reign of a mad king is not impossible, but it does come with scars.

    Information: 

    During World War II, 350,000 American women joined the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Army Air Corps. Some served on the American home front, while others volunteered to go overseas. While people disapproved, the women persevered and outshone everyone’s expectations. Kayleen Reusser has compiled an assortment of stories from interviews with women who served as nurses, cryptologists, and even pilots during the war. From helping to tow targets while being shot at with live ammunition to nursing wounded men in France, these women responded wholeheartedly during their country’s time of need and helped to win the war.

    Will present stories from my book: Born To Be Soldiers: Those Plucky Women of World War II.
