April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Book Release: Such Good Cloth by Heather Trefethen

My cousin, Heather Trefethen, has released her second book, a short story titled Such Good Cloth.

The description reads:

A short story set in Eastern Europe during WWII, Such Good Cloth chronicles events in the lives of three separate individuals experiencing the horror, fascination, and heartache of war. Kriska, using her vivid imagination to stave off her hunger pangs, wants to be an actress. Nicolaus, anticipating the arrival of “the great speaker”, wants to be a soldier. And Joseph, having just been liberated from a concentration camp, simply wants to be at peace. In their own way, the three must come to terms with what they are about to realize, what they failed to recognize, and what they never could have conceived.

It's really quite a compelling story. Heather deals with some serious issues in a very few number of pages, and delivers an emotional punch with each one.

I'm just so ridiculously proud of her! The book is available as a Kindle version, a Nook version, and a paperback edition. Please order a copy and give it a read. You won't be disappointed!
