Good morning all, this looks like a nice read.

Homefront

The year is 1939. Britain is on the brink of war and 18 year old Charlotte Moore's life is about to change forever. Charlotte is used to living a joyful, carefree life. Although she works hard to help out at the family garage with her father and brother, she is free to spend time with her close-knit family, go for rides at the local fair, and dress up for tea dances in the evenings. And a romance is blossoming between her and one of her brother's friends, Robert Costello. But when the family hears Mr Chamberlain's announcement on the radio that Britain is at war with Germany everything changes. Her father, her brother, Robert and all of her friends start enlisting and Charlotte is left to run the family business on her own

The Trojan Carousel
The Nobel Prize winning physicist, Richard Feynman, said that he didn't know if there was really a problem with quantum mechanics but if there was, it was a big one. He also suggested that if children were taught quantum concepts early, they might not have any problems at all with the theory.
The Trojan Carousel is the story of two schools: The Feynman Elementary School of Advanced Physics, and the affiliated Amdexter School, a traditional, middle-grade, boys boarding school. It is also the story of Kip, a student at Feynman, Alex at Amdexter, and how their friendship first grows and then fractures under the clash of the 'two cultures'.
Relations between the two schools start well but gradually fall apart. And the carousel, intended as a symbol of friendship, becomes the focal point of a vicious nighttime war.
This novel is hard to characterize. It has a lot of science (much of which has been relegated to the 'back of the book' and can be safely ignored), but it isn't exactly science fiction. It's written for both middle-school kids and also theoretical physicists (such as myself). One might compare it to 'Harry Potter' with physics replacing magic. But it perhaps has more in common with 'Lord of the Flies'. I hope the reader will find The Trojan Carousel both an engaging story and also an interesting exploration of the wonderful weirdness of quantum theory.

A Good German: Adam Von Trott Zu Solz by Giles MacDonogh

Almost seventy years after the July plot to kill Hitler there is still controversy about the motives of the conspirators.

Adam von Trott zu Solz was at the centre of that plot.

Trott was a brave and honourable man, a passionate patriot, incapable of anything ignoble or unworthy, and he served what he regarded as being the deepest interests of his own countrymen and decent people everywhere' - Sir Isaiah Berlin

I think that's your book isn't it Mr T Abbott? Amazon has guidelines on where you can promote your own book and it shouldn't be done in this forum. Instead you will need to delete post and put it in the Meet Our authors forum (scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the link) which is the right forum.

The Whispering Bell Historical ~ looks good
Set in 7th century Anglo Saxon England. Wynflaed is a rich warrior's wife. When he is lost in battle she loses everything, even their children. Her fight to win them back recalls the terror of the shield wall, the harsh lives of convict slaves, and the enormous difficulties a lone woman must face in a male dominated heroic age.

The Best of Alfred Sisley
"If you want to know what quiet sounds like, then explore Sisley's Paintings"
With these haunting words, the author begins to appoint the depth of emotion he feels for this highly underrated artist. The Art of Alfred Sisley seems to come alive and leap off the page with every word. Explore Sisley's best works, and troubled life, the misfortunes that shaped his artistic soul. With each paragraph you will discover what makes Alfred Sisley uncrowned royalty in the world of impressionist painting.

One of my favourite films, in my favourite film genre, by one of my favourite directors.
Breathless Film Analysis: Jean-Luc Godard & New Wavism (Homeworker Helper) only a wee 4 pages but worth a look!
Once the 1950s came to an end of its decade, there was a change in cinema that took place in France. This movement is known as New Wavism which used unconventional filming methods, and challenging new ideas. In the 1960s, there were directors creating films as a part of the New Wave that competed against the cinéma du papa (dad's cinema), creating films by themselves rather than be a part of the old fashioned French cinema. This essay, written by Sal Galvan, analysis the New Wave movement of 1950's &1960's France. Galvan Focuses primarily on beloved Jean-Luc Godard as he delves into the evolution of french films from New Wavism.

Albert Patecky in New York: Letters Home from the Arts Students League, 1945
"When Albert Patecky set off for New York City for a three-month period in 1945, his goal was to develop his skills as an artist and to come to terms, in his own way, with `modern art.' The debate between modernists and traditionalists had erupted in earnest a decade before, and remained hot and intense in the 1940s. Studying in New York at the Art Students League, Patecky encountered artists who aligned themselves in different ways with the on-going argument.

His letters home to his artist wife Blanche, who remained in Portland, Oregon, with their young son, reflect his naïve yet passionate inquiry into the nature of art and its relevance to modern life. Her letters, in turn, speak of her support of Albert's search for a meaningful foundation for artmaking and of her optimism about their future as working artists in Portland. In reading the Pateckys' correspondence, we are provided with a vivid glimpse into a period of transition and expectancy in American culture."

Thanks Night Owl & Ruby slippers, I've been lurking since stopping posting, just keeping an eye on things & deleting books from library. That's been hard work !!! Night Owl, went to look at Goodreads when the discussion thread moved but it all looked quite complicated so I ran away !!! Maybe I'll have another look but not right now as have to go back to bed soon.
