An Inspiring Story by Rachel Hauck. The Love Letter


Broken-hearted actress Chloe is on the verge of despair. Her last boyfriend betrayed her and she thinks that she is ‘the Queen of Death’ because she has died in so many parts! However, she decides that she is going to be assertive for once, and actually ask for a role which she really wants…

Jesse, the young screenwriter of Chloe’s new film, has also had his heart wounded, but he regards it as his own fault and he has a big burden to bear. Attracted to Chloe, he finds it difficult to get close to a woman again. He wonders whether he can ever find a love story like the one in his family past, that of Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther, star-crossed lovers on opposite sides of the American Revolutionary War.

Rachel Hauck deftly combines the modern story of Chloe and Jesse with the historical one of Hamilton and Esther. The main characters are all likeable and engaging and the intriguing story keeps one reading, although I found the book a bit long. Hauck also shows how a strong faith can help her characters and the importance of trust and forgiveness and believing in true love.

I preferred the modern story to the historical one, however. I thought that it was better written and more believable.

This is an interesting book with vivid descriptions of the actual battle with accounts from those involved.  It is well-worth reading for anyone who wants to learn more about Nelson and the battle. I especially liked the depiction of Lord Nelson. This was a moving and well-researched history.

What to Say and How to Say It Discuss Your Catholic Faith with Clarity and Confidence by Brandon Vogt

can be especially difficult, but it is certainly better to feel confident about talking about these topics with people who disagree than avoiding them. Brandon Vogt shows Catholics how to defend their beliefs comprehensively and with excellent arguments.

I like his books, and I will read more of them.

Sisters in Life and in Death. Review of Women of the OSS. Sisterhood of Spies by Elizabeth P. McIntosh

Young and brave, the women of the OSS organised resistance groups, committed sabotage, forged documents and encoded and decoded messages, as well as being involved in many other espionage activities. This book is based on over 100 interviews with men and women who served in the OSS and the CIA and with writers, scholars and historians.  Elizabeth P. McIntosh does justice to the women who fought for freedom in this fascinating book.

She tells exciting tales about these 'sisters', including the stories of Maria Gulovich, who led soldiers to freedom across mountainous terrain through snow and bitter weather, Countess Ramanones who reported on the gossip of the Spanish aristocracy, Cornelia Dodson, who met the future fashion designer Emilio Pucci to ask him to search for Mussolini's missing diaries, and Virginia Hall, who only had on leg but didn't that affect her clandestine activities. McIntosh also writes about exciting operations, such as Operation Sunrise which led to…
