new book

I have a new book to read it is interesting.I got it in ebook. I am enjoying it.

There are many accounts of World War II and the Holocaust atrocities, whether media articles, historical records, or books. In My Hands is a true story, magnificently written by, and of, Irene Gut (Irena Gutowna) Opdyke, with Jennifer Armstrong. I urge you to read this book, even it if is the only one you read this year! Perhaps it is my Polish roots, my immigrant parents, and my 1999 visit to Poland and Auschwitz that causes my tears to fall. But, it's hard not to feel strongly about Irena's heroic story - of courage and suffering, while spying on, dodging, and mingling with, Germans and Russians, sneaking food and notes, and hiding Jews from a horrific fate.

Patsy, it is just a pit to build a little fire in. I have lots of trees adn thought I would use it to keep the limbs that fall burned rather than have to carry them off to larry's big pile in the pasture. Siggie loves having a fire.
