The Heart Mender

I would like to suggest this book for your consideration for March or April "Book of the Month." It's a very quick read, a compelling, true story, (well, a lot of truth in the story anyway) and will teach you a thing or two that you didn't know about war being waged in US waters during WWII. 
THE HEART MENDER

Here is a short You Tube Video to get you interested.

A Book Request by Your Father


By now each of you should have received in the mail and copy of this book along with an email of why Dad felt it was important for you to read it. When we read it together several years ago I was amazed at how much of this story I did not know. I was 10 years old when all of this was happening and I remember hearing the news stories but I never really understood the vital geopolitical and social implications of what was happening in the middle east and how it has changed the outlook of the world. All I really knew was after this, no one really wanted to mess with Israel, and that was a good thing. This is a short month and it is a pretty short book, so please take the time to read it and be ready to join the discussion here (on the blog) on February 28th. 
Looking forward to hearing your opinions. 
Love you, 
Mom
