WASP Sting

by Lee Sweetapple

Trudy Andrich is doing all she can to help the war effort as the Allied and Axis powers clash across the Atlantic and Pacific. As a Women Airforce Service Pilot (WASP), Trudy is one of the most knowledgeable flyers of the P-51 Mustang. She is in full command of one of the fastest airplanes ever made, but she is forbidden from going into combat because of her gender.

Trudy is shocked when her dream of going to the front lines is fulfilled. The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) needs a pilot to sneak into German-occupied Lithuania and rescue a professor whose work could have international implications.

But first, Trudy will have to get there. As Trudy crosses the United States and Canada with her handsome traveling partner, Major Rod Jackson, she sees the many different ways Americans and Canadians are helping on the home front. Her new base of operations in Duxford, England, will also give her a front-row seat to the violent, deadly aerial battles of the European theater. Trudy is determined to fight to protect the Allies, but will she make it out of her first operation alive?

Westburn Blues

by Jim Ellis

Dante Rinaldi is born to Italian immigrants in the West of Scotland. Stranded by World War Two in Italy during a summer with his grandfather, Dante grows roots in his family’s rural homeland and, as a young adult, identifies with a band of mountain partisans fighting the fascists.

Young love delayed and the Rinaldis’ struggles in post-war Scotland carry Dante into the life of Chris McCoull: a neglected adolescent who finds his calling and romance while working for a Greek-owned shipping line.

Carefully researched and historically detailed, Westburn Blues is a rendering of the Scottish-Italian experience and filled with a cast of colorful characters… from sympathetic to truly evil.

Die letzten Tage von Pompeji: historischer Roman (German Edition)

by Edward Bulwer

“Du hast also dieses Kind unter deinen Schutz genommen?” sagte Klodius. “Ja, singt sie nicht sehr hübsch? Sie interessiert mich, die arme Sklavin! – Ã?berdies ist sie aus Thessalien, der Olymp schaute auf ihre Wiege herab.” “Also ist sie aus dem Lande der Zauberinnen.” “Allerdings, aber was mich betrifft, so halte ich jedes weibliche Geschöpf für eine Zauberin, besonders hier in Pompeji, wo selbst die Luft mit einem Liebestrank erfüllt zu sein scheint.” “Und sieh da! Eine der schönsten in Pompeji, die Tochter des alten Diomedes, die reiche Julia”, sagte Klodius, als ein junges Mädchen, das Antlitz mit einem Schleier bedeckt und durch zwei Sklavinnen auf ihrem Wege zum Bade begleitet, sich ihnen näherte.
