A lot has been going on around our house. We went to our first WWII reenactment as a family. I had a display on wartime rationing while my husband and kids were dressed as 1940s scouts - Scoutmaster, Brownie, and Cub Scout. It was a lot of fun!
But the really happy news is that when we got back from our weekend away, I got an e-mail notifying me that the History Novel Society had reviewed my book and it had been chosen for their Editor's Choice Award! In addition, my book has been long-listed for their 2017 Indie Book Contest! This is some thrilling news! It is such a satisfying feeling that all my hard work, hours of research, and rewriting and editing paid off! What makes me even more happy is that this exposes my book to hundreds of new readers. It really is a little-known aspect of WWII that I'd like to spread within the History community and among History readers.
