Standalone Sunday 

Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by  Megan@bookslayerreads. Standalone Sunday was created to let others know about all the standalone books you have loved, but maybe don’t get the attention they need. Megan created the banner as well and anyone joining in can use it too. Why not check out her blog too🙂

This week I’ve chosen The Last Telegram by Liz Trenow


The war changed everything for Lily Verner.

As the Nazis storm Europe, Lily becomes an apprentice at her family’s silk weaving factory. When they start to weave parachute silk there is no margin for error: one tiny fault could result in certain death for Allied soldiers.

The war also brings Stefan to Lily: a German Jewish refugee who works on the looms. As their love grows, there are suspicions someone is tampering with the silk.

Can their love survive the hardships of war? And will the Verner’s silk stand the ultimate test?


I loved this book when I read it back in 2012. It’s beautifully written and delightful to read.  A definite recommendation if you enjoy historical fiction.

  2. Oh now this definitely sounds like a book I’d really love! My kind of story! I’m pretty sure I already have this one on the TBR, but if not, I’ll be adding it for sure. Thanks, Nicki! 🙂
