Read full description of the books The Beautiful Assassin:This was an awesome, exciting, and yes, pulse pouding read. Tat'yana Levchenko is a wife and mother who in the midst of world war two, loses her husband and child both. Filled with anger and hate for the Germans, she becomes a soldier, a sniper, and later, a spy. With 300 kills under her belt, she travels to America to promote the Soviet cause and appeal to Americans to get active on the front. I preferred the story when she was killing people, as harsh as that sounds. However, when Eleanor Roosevelt enters the picture, a fascinating figure herself, the book regains its excitement.
Tat'yana struggles between loyalty to her Russia and guilt for betraying her newfound friend. The Russian "higher ups" want Tat'yana to get information from the first lady. Tat'yana starts to wonder if she is in over her head tho. A handsome Captain enters the picture, only to make her inner turmoil and conflicting emotions even worse. Tat'yana must eventually choose. Her country or love? A life of secrecy or fear or a life of hiding?
Even if she does decide to "defect" to the other side, it won't be easy if even possible. I loved this book and its strong women characters. It is also a terrific look at the espionage system during world war 2 and the conspiracies going on behind the frontlines. Highly recommended.
Read information about the authorAuthor of Resting Places
One woman’s journey of self-discovery and spiritual awakening
After receiving the devastating news of her son’s death, Elizabeth ekes out a lonely and strained relationship with her husband, Zach. While he takes comfort in support groups, Elizabeth becomes withdrawn and seeks solace from the only thing that helps her forget: alcohol. A chance meeting with a man on the side of the road spurs her to travel cross-country to the site of her son’s death in the hope of understanding what had happened.
During the trip, she undergoes a transformation, one which allows her to confront the demons of her past but also to acknowledge the possibilities of her future. Through the wisdom and kindness of a man she meets along the way, she finds a means not only of dealing with her pain and her guilt, but of opening herself to the redemptive power of love, and of faith in something. Resting Places is an inspiring, upbeat story, a tale of real faith in what we cannot see except with our hearts, a novel that follows a character from despair to hope, from despondency to renewal.
