Instead of doing a monthly Kindle post I’m going to see how it goes spreading the deals over the month and also picking up on shorter term offers. Consequently the number of books on offer each day might vary.
As usual the choices will reflect books that I’d be tempted by and not just any books that are on offer.
The price quoted is that given at time of posting, please always check before buying as some prices can change quickly.

While on the march, the group run into some Australian prisoners, one of whom, Joe Harman, helps them steal some food, and is horrifically punished by the Japanese as a result.
After the war, Jean tracks Joe down in Australia and together they begin to dream of surmounting the past and transforming his one-horse outback town into a thriving community like Alice Springs…
