I hope you’ve had a good week. I’ve been flying from one place to another, so I apologize for not getting the blog up yesterday. While the whole country is in an anxious frenzy over the elections, I am dealing with much smaller, less important, but enjoyable pursuits. A visit with one of my daughters in New York, and a quiet weekend with her, then back on a plane again. I came home to my brand new tiny Chihuahua puppy. She is so cute and lively and fun, she plays like crazy and then goes back to sleep.
On a more personal level, I hope you’ve read my newest book, it just came out, “The Award”, I’m very excited about it, and I love the story about a young woman who fights in the Resistance, and then is mistaken for a collaborator at the end of the war. Many, many years later, her grand daughter fights to clear her name, and have her grandmother recognized as the war hero she was. It’s a very touching, poignant story, and I hope you will love it!!!!
Over the weekend, with my daughter, we watched a fantastic new British series, “The Crown”, about the early years of Queen Elizabeth II. It is remarkably well done, my daughter and I loved it. It’s available on Netflix. And it tells about a fascinating period of history, right after the war, and is a fascinating glimpse into the monarchy. It’s amazing to think that the queen is still on the throne 65 years later, and going strong. We loved the show!!!
I hope that whoever wins the election is the right person to run the country. We can only hope….
And if you need some distraction from it all, I hope you read my latest book, “The Award”.
Have a fantastic week !!!
much love, Danielle
