Good morning! I haven’t checked prices since last night. Please double check before one-clicking. I’ll update the post when I am up and at ’em this morning. Good news: As of 6:30a.m. Central time, all the prices are good!
 
The Child by Fiona Barton ($1.99) – As an old house is demolished in a gentrifying section of London, a workman discovers human remains, buried for years. For journalist Kate Waters, it’s a story that deserves attention. She cobbles together a piece for her newspaper, but at a loss for answers, she can only pose a question: Who has been found at the building site?
 
An Unusual Boy (Only 99 cents) – Julia Curtis is a busy mother of three, with a husband often away for work, an ever-present mother-in-law, a career, and a house that needs doing up. Her fourteen-year-old daughter, Milla, has fallen in love for the first time, and her youngest, Ruby, is a nine-year-old fashionista who can out-negotiate anyone.
But Julia’s eleven-year-old son, Jackson, is different.
 
Where The Light Gets In (99 cents) – If Lorna’s learned one thing, it’s that courage is something you paint on like red lipstick, even when you’re panicking inside. Sick of life in the big city, Lorna’s come home to fulfil her dream of running a successful art gallery. Desperate for change, Lorna just wants a fresh start but can she find it in Longhampton?

Sergeant Stubby – A WWI canine hero 0 comments

I recently listened to the story of World War I canine hero Sergeant Stubby ($9.99 Kindle), the true story of America’s most-decorated military dog. The book chronicles the history of a stray dog who trained with troops and traveled to Europe, loyal to the young man who befriended him.
The audiobook is included in the Audible Plus catalog for members if you would like to give it a listen. The female narrator doesn’t seem to be the best choice for this selection. It is a book about a man and his dog. A male narrator may have added more gravitas to the story.
The forward of the book “A Soldier’s Best Friend” is the story of veteran David A. Sharpe and a dog who rescued him for deep depression. You can read his story here and clicking on the LOOK INSIDE on the book cover. The short book preview includes Mr. Sharpe’s story in its entirety.
A short video version of Sgt. Stubby’s service can be found here. The movie is free with Amazon Prime and appears to be for children and families.
