Beckoning Books

The autobiography of a spirited man and brilliant mind, Walter Williams. Down-to-earth and a quick read.

The memoir of a 30 year old with a horrific past who changed her future. Her parents were drug addicts and her childhood exposures to the seedy side of life were heartbreaking. She is very perceptive and seems to have gained the majority of her education from bad examples. It is a book not easily forgotten.

A rare story from World War 1 that intrigues and tells of a handful of soldiers hidden in households in the occupied zone. I count myself blessed not to have such difficult choices to make, more than enough to eat, freedom of movement, freedom of assembly and freedom from arbitrary rules.
