Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, the #1 Amazon Charts bestseller Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man’s incredible courage and resilience during one of history’s darkest hours.
Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He’s a normal Italian teenager—obsessed with music, food, and girls—but his days of innocence are numbered. When his family home in Milan is destroyed by Allied bombs, Pino joins an underground railroad helping Jews escape over the Alps, and falls for Anna, a beautiful widow six years his senior.
In an attempt to protect him, Pino’s parents force him to enlist as a German soldier—a move they think will keep him out of combat. But after Pino is injured, he is recruited at the tender age of eighteen to become the personal driver for Adolf Hitler’s left hand in Italy, General Hans Leyers, one of the Third Reich’s most mysterious and powerful commanders.
Now, with the opportunity to spy for the Allies inside the German High Command, Pino endures the horrors of the war and the Nazi occupation by fighting in secret, his courage bolstered by his love for Anna and for the life he dreams they will one day share.
Fans of All the Light We Cannot See, The Nightingale, and Unbroken will enjoy this riveting saga of history, suspense, and love.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, a New York Times Book Review Top Ten Book, National Book Award finalist, more than two and a half years on the New York Times bestseller list
From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the stunningly beautiful instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.
In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.
Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).All the Light We Cannot See: A Novel

An action-oriented self-help book! Ever wondered why that ugly, talentless acquaintance is so successful? Or why that no-good-for-any-job neighbor earns more than you do? Here you are trying to do everything you possibly can, and you aren’t moving even an inch towards your goals. And you feel frustrated that others are able to reach their dreams so easily. Why? Its all due to Self Belief. Self Belief is the only common denominator between all successful people. Your Self Belief has a deep connection with your Thoughts and Actions. This book will finally unravel why you have been struggling. This book will strengthen your Self Belief by first strengthening your thoughts and actions. Here what will be unveiled:
Introduction: Self-Belief allows you to predict the future
SECTION I: Thoughts that strengthen Belief Chapter 1: We think only twice in a year I didn’t make the above claim. It was made by one of the greatest thinkers of yesteryears. George Bernard Shaw. Why? This chapter will tell you. Chapter 2: Thinking is Praying Countless times you have prayed for something, and it didn’t materialize. Be honest. Did you really felt deep down that it wasn’t going to happen? Did you know that you are praying each minute of your life without knowing it? God is always providing you with exactly what you are praying for. Stop getting in your own way of success. Be kind to yourself and learn why you hold yourself back. Chapter 3: Asking Hard Questions We can walk up to anyone and tell ’em how to get thin, save more money, have better relations. Question is, why don’t we follow our own advice?
SECTION II: Actions that strengthen belief Chapter 1: Why the Law of Attraction will never work for you? So you think Law of Attraction is either awesomeness or a scam? This chapter will tell you of a more powerful law than the law of attraction. And surprisingly, its hidden within those very words. Chapter 2: Taking tough actions Whose dream are you living? Yours? Your spouse’s? Your boss’? Your kid’s? Its time to live your own dream. Whether it’s a New Year’s Resolution or a list of chores, you need to take action. Chapter 3: Why its critical to succeed just today? Forget long term goals. Your mind simply isn’t programmed to think about what you will be 5 years from now. This critical piece is missing from most goal-setting exercises. You will be a success tomorrow only if you just do everything right only for today. “Just do it only for today. We will think about tomorrow, tomorrow.” BONUS SECTION: How do I use this information to change my life in the next fifteen minutes Unlike most other self-help books, you will get to know exactly what you need to do in the next 15 minutes after completing this book. As easy as following Step 1…Step 2…Step 3… etc.
