A happy Tuesday to you all. Are you all joining the T-party? Elizabeth and Bleubeard welcome you at Altered Book Lover.
Here is the card I am sending to a Postcrossing member in Germany who is crazy about old tractors. It is an image from 1960, a photograph by John Gay. The info on the card tells me: A tractor being driven through the doorway of St Etheldreda's church in Hatfield.
I haven´t really been up to much this week. I have no photos of outings or restaurant visits. And I am writing this away from my desktop computer where all my photos are stores, so my contribution to the T-party is this:
Isn´t that a lovely tea set? My mum used to have a posh tea set, but now we all drink from a mug. A shame really.
I did finish another book this week. I liked it very much. It was set in Italy during WW2.
I enjoyed it immensely and I will write the ´blurb´ at the bottom for those who are interested.
Thursday I will be flying out to the Netherlands to visit my mum for her birthday. I will be staying a week. Needless to say I am greatly looking forward to it. Next week I will have much more to report for sure.
Happy T-day all!
Italy, 1943-Germany occupies much of the country, placing the Jewish population in grave danger during World War II.
As children, Eva Rosselli and Angelo Bianco were raised like family but divided by circumstance and religion. As the years go by, the two find themselves falling in love. But the church calls to Angelo and, despite his deep feelings for Eva, he chooses the priesthood.
Now, more than a decade later, Angelo is a Catholic priest and Eva is a woman with nowhere to turn. With the Gestapo closing in, Angelo hides Eva within the walls of a convent, where Eva discovers she is just one of many Jews being sheltered by the Catholic Church.
But Eva can't quietly hide, waiting for deliverance, while Angelo risks everything to keep her safe. With the world at war and so many in need, Angelo and Eva face trial after trial, choice after agonizing choice, until fate and fortune finally collide, leaving them with the most difficult decision of all.
