Shepherd.com is a fairly new website and an exciting new way to share books–for readers as well as for a way for authors to share their own books.
The concept is for an author to feature his/her book, and also recommend five related books. Since I featured Leora’s Letters, I chose books of surprising and compelling WWII stories.
Here are the ones I recommended:
U-505: The Lone Wolf of Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry by James E. Wise, Jr.
Typhoon: The Other Enemy: The Third Fleet and the Pacific Storm of December 1944 by Captain C. Raymond Calhoun
Crosses in the Wind: Graves Registration Service in the Second World War by Joseph James Shomon
LST 388: A World War II Journal by Robert William Von Der Osten, Barbara Von Der Osten
Soldiers’ Stories: A Collection of WWII Memories, Volume II by The Miller Family
Here’s the link to the post on Shepherd.com, where I explain why I chose those specific books.
As a reader, as an author, you’ll want to check out their website.

I’m going to have to spend some time on this site!
It’s fairly new so still evolving, but I really like the concept. You might feature “Telling Sonny”!
That’s a good idea. I’m trying to think of appropriate books to go with it.
That’s part of the fun.
