Title: Women Heroes of World War II: 32 Stories of Espionage, Sabotage, Resistance, and Rescue[Second Edition with more Stories]
Date: August 24, 2019
Time: 2 PM
There will be a musical accompaniment of tunes of the time by Kathy and her husband, John Atwood.
In this expanded edition, readers will encounter six new profiles of amazing women, as well as a new section on the Soviet Union. Noor Inayat Khan was the first female radio operator sent into occupied France and transferred crucial messages to the Resistance. Johtje Vos, a Dutch housewife, hid Jews in her home and repeatedly outsmarted the Gestapo. Law student Hannie Schaft became involved in the most dangerous resistance work—sabotage, weapons transference, and assassinations. In these pages, young readers will meet these and many other similarly courageous women and girls who risked their lives to help defeat the Nazis. An overview of World War II and summaries of each country’s involvement provide a framework for better understanding each woman’s unique circumstances, and resources for further learning follow each profile.

The battle is one of wits and cunning, where the strong heart will overcome his enemy.
Ex-marine Arthur Nakai spent years as a member of the Shadow Wolves, an ICE tactical unit tasked by the US government to hunt human traffickers and drug smugglers on the US/Mexico border. He put that life of confronting violence in the darker contours of the desert landscape behind him and settled into a quiet existence in New Mexico with his wife, Sharon, a local TV reporter.
But when Sharon goes missing after crossing paths with a serial killer who has just added to his list of young victims, Arthur's calm world is shattered. He must return to the darkness of the life he left behind in order to save what matters most to him, and the future he and his wife plan to share together. He can only hope that she is still alive, and that his skills will be enough to find her.
So begins the hunt--to find a ruthless killer and save the love of his life
