My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.
No Heil Hitler! is a fabulous autobiography. Author Paul Cieslar tells of his experiences in Poland from the time the Nazis invaded until its liberation, and then of his experiences in Communist Poland.
Paul and his family, who were Adventists, were targeted often because they worshipped God on a Saturday. This similarity to the Jewish people was noted by the Nazis and it made life difficult for them and other Adventists. Paul does not sugarcoat his story. The brutality of the Nazis is laid bare for all to see. People are taken away, shot, murdered, tortured. Lives are ruined, families torn apart. It is confronting and often unpleasant reading but gripping and compelling, especially as he and his family rely on God's grace in the midst of appalling evil.
