Guess what?! I'm a runner now. I started Couch to 5K (C25K) last week. My daughters got me great shoes for my birthday and last year, Key Lime Pie got me a cool health watch that tells me my distance, speed, etc. I actually am still alive today... although sore most of the week.
I just finished reading The Tulip Resistance by Lynne Leatham Allen. I have read a lot of books about WWII in Germany so when I saw that this book was based in Holland (and DeGooyer is a Dutch name) I was really intrigued.
This book is the story of a Dutch girl, Marieka Cordoven, who lives with her parents and brother on a farm. Marieka finds a wounded German soldier who is a deserter and does not want to fight for Hitler. She decides to help him. Her family also helps a few Jews hide from the Nazis and also a couple of British spies.
Honestly, although I liked the premise, I didn't care for the book. I didn't really like the style of writing and I didn't think the author had a great grasp on how to write about war time and horrible atrocities of war. It's not a bad book. I just didn't care for it.
