Tracy Groot’s newest book is here in the store. Maggie Bright is the story of Dunkirk. I am not sure what else to say about Tracy’s books that I have not already said. If you love history, if you love a well researched book and if you love an interesting read, pick up any of her books and enjoy.
Clare Childs inherits the Maggie Bright. Little does she know of the boats secrets. When an American is arrested breaking into the boat, Clare begins to wonder about the story behind the boat and searches out the criminal to ask him what he was looking for. But what she finds out is not what she expects.
Meanwhile, the British army finds themselves trapped on the shores of Dunkirk with no escape in sight. Churchill puts out the call for all the civilian boats to rescue their boys. Clare answers the call even though it might mean losing her boat to the mines in the channel.
Dunkirk is the thing of legends. A nation came to the rescue of their boys so they could all stand together against the greatest threat their nation had faced in modern history. Even if you are not British the story of Dunkirk inspires awe, but also makes you proud to be a human. So much ugliness came out of WWII, but Dunkirk, that makes you proud.
Tracy is going to be in our store on May 14th at 7:00 p.m. to discuss her research, read an excerpt and sign books. Come with your questions and find out the secrets behind writing of a great historical novel.
