throwbackthursday

Throwback Thursday meme is hosted by Renee@Itโ€™s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favourites as well as sharing books that you’re FINALLY getting around to reading that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them ๐Ÿ™‚! These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, youโ€™re welcome to use Reneeโ€™s pic as well. If youโ€™d just link back to her @ Itโ€™s Book Talk sheโ€™d so appreciate it.

My choice this week is: The Last Telegram by Liz Trenow

The war changed everything for Lily Verner.

As the Nazis storm Europe, Lily becomes an apprentice at her familyโ€™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 Vernerโ€™s silk stand the ultimate test?

 

Oh how I devoured this book when I read it several years ago. It’s romantic, fascinating and thrilling. The perfect read for the beach or curling up inside when it’s pouring down with rain outside.
