Welcome to a new weekly post called Must Get Monday. Whether it’s an upcoming release, new release, or even one that has been out for ages that you haven’t purchased a copy of yet, Must Get Monday highlights those books you just can’t wait to get your hands on to dive into.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering from the graphic: yes, those are shopping carts in a bookstore getting filled up by bookish friends shopping together. I may or may not have been a party to said cart filling 😉 Gotta love that Baker Book House! <3
This week the book I’m featuring is:
It is obvious in Amanda Barratt’s writing that she has a deep love and appreciation for history. It’s evident that she does a lot of research, blurring the line between the fact and fiction. This is her newest work set to release at end of this month on May 26 and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
About the Book:
Inspired by the incredible true story of a group of ordinary men and women who dared to stand against evil The ideal of a new Germany swept up Sophie Scholl in a maelstrom of patriotic fervor–that is, until she realized the truth behind Hitler’s machinations for the fatherland. Now she and other students in Munich, the cradle of the Nazi government, have banded together to form a group to fight for the truth: the White Rose. Risking everything to print and distribute leaflets calling for Germans to rise up against the evil permeating their country, the White Rose treads a knife’s edge of discovery by the gestapo.
Annalise Brandt came to the University of Munich to study art, not get involved with conspiracy. The daughter of an SS officer, she’s been brought up to believe in the fuhrer’s divinely appointed leadership. But the more she comes to know Sophie and her friends, the more she questions the Nazi propaganda.
Soon Annalise joins their double life–students by day, resisters by night. And as the stakes increase, they’re all forced to confront the deadly consequences meted out to any who dare to oppose the Reich.
A gripping testament to courage, The White Rose Resists illuminates the sacrifice and conviction of an unlikely group of revolutionaries who refused to remain silent-no matter the cost.
Join the fun!
