            Forty modern masterpieces are found concealed on a neutral ship in international waters sixteen months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Their provenance is sketchy and their final destination unknown. The Royal Navy suspects the works are degenerate art seized by the Nazis and... shipped across the Atlantic to create cash for their covert operations. But how to prove it? There's only one man for the job--Roy Hawkins. The British Secret Intelligence Service has put their half-American star agent in tough spots before and he's always come out on top. But this time Hawkins is headed to Mexico, where the vibrant art scene and tight-knit German expatriate community obscure the paintings' ultimate purpose. As he tracks the art from Veracruz to Mexico City, Hawkins struggles to see the Nazis' endgame. For the first time, he doesn't speak the language and he doesn't know the players--but he does know how to fight Fascists. Problem is, in the get along and go along culture of wartime profiteering, distinguishing between the true believers and the opportunists is no easy task. Can Hawkins untangle the false leads and double crosses before the Nazis realize their sinister plan?

But they also come to understand the healing power of love u love for their comrades, love for each other, and love for the young, highly spirited girl they left back homea This is a story of bravery and misadventure, of intolerance and friendship, most of all it is the story of three young men who went to war and fought for love.

            In this heartbreaking Turkish novel based on the real-life sinking of a refugee ship during World War II, an elderly professor leaves America to revisit the city where he last glimpsed his beloved wife. Istanbul, 2001. Maya Duran is a single mother struggling to balance a demandi...ng job at Istanbul University with the challenges of raising a teenage son. Her worries increase when she is tasked with looking after the enigmatic Maximilian Wagner, an elderly German-born Harvard professor visiting the city at the university's invitation. Although he is distant at first, Maya gradually learns of the tragic circumstances that brought him to Istanbul sixty years before, and the dark realities that continue to haunt him. Inspired by the 1942 Struma disaster, in which nearly 800 Jewish refugees perished after the ship carrying them to Palestine was torpedoed off the coast of Turkey, Serenade for Nadia is both a poignant love story and a gripping testament to the power of human connection in crisis.

            The Home for Unwanted Girls meets Orphan Train in this unforgettable novel about a young girl caught in a scheme to rid England's streets of destitute children, and the lengths she will go to find her way home--based on the true story of the British Home Children. Canada, 2018 At... ninety-seven years old, Winnifred Ellis knows she doesn't have much time left, and it is almost a relief to know that once she is gone, the truth about her shameful past will die with her. But when her great-grandson Jamie, the spitting image of her dear late husband, asks about his family tree, Winnifred can't lie any longer, even if it means breaking a promise she made so long ago... England, 1936 Fifteen-year-old Winny has never known a real home. After running away from an abusive stepfather, she falls in with Mary and Jack and their ragtag group of friends roaming the streets of Liverpool. When the children are caught stealing food, Winny and Mary are left in Dr. Barnardo's Barkingside Home for Girls, a local home for orphans and forgotten children found in the city's slums. At Barkingside, Winny learns she will soon join other boys and girls in a faraway place called Canada where families and better lives await them. But Winny's hopes are dashed when she is separated from her friends and sent to live with a family who has no use for another daughter. Instead, they have paid for an indentured servant to work on their farm. Faced with this harsh new reality, Winny clings to the belief that she will someday find her friends again. Inspired by true events, The Forgotten Home Child is a moving and heartbreaking novel about place, belonging, and family--the one we make for ourselves and its enduring power to draw us home.
