This Was an Unexpected Pleasure
Where the Crawdads Sing - Delia Owens

What an adventure that was. The narration was so good I easily got lost in this audiobook's world. The story was so simple and yet so complex. The characters were amazing, by the end of the book I felt like. they were family. Seriously how many books leave you feeling that way ? 
We follow a young girl, a swamp girl who from a very young age is abandoned by her parents to live alone in the swamp. She suffers, but never quits, at 7 she figures out how to get the basics. The adults in town thing she's a dirty marsh thing and want nothing to do with her. She spends one horrible day at school before running back to the swamp where noting hates her. Years pass, she's alone except for one boy and an older couple outcasts in a different way. The boy teaches her to read and sets her life on fire. She takes that lesson and feeds it. Her life and her love of the swamp are such bitterly beautiful. I loved this story, and don't think I'll ever forget the Marsh girl. There was so much pain, love, suffering, happiness, and beauty.

THE ODYSSEY OF AN AFRICAN AMERICAN VETERAN OF WORLD WAR II
Blood on German Snow: An African American Artilleryman in World War II and Beyond - Emiel W. Owens

Born in Texas in 1922, Emiel W. Owens went on to live an extraordinary life as an educator and economic/financial consultant. He shares with the reader his life experiences from growing up under Jim Crow segregation in Texas, through his service in the U.S. Army during World War II with the 777th Field Artillery Battalion (which was engaged in almost constant combat in Europe between October 1944 and V-E Day in May 1945), and his subsequent reassignment to a quartermaster unit that was shipped to the Philippines shortly before the end of the Pacific War.

Owens was honorably discharged from the Army shortly after returning to the U.S. in early 1946. He went on to earn his undergraduate degree at Prairie View A&M University and graduate degrees (a Masters and doctorate) in economics from Ohio State University. He would go on to teach and serve in a variety of educational and consultative endeavors both in the U.S. and abroad.

I very much enjoyed reading this memoir. It is well-written and a rare work, because there are very few memoirs from African American veterans of World War II. That in itself makes "BLOOD ON GERMAN SNOW" a book to treasure.

Forged in Fire
Forged in Fire - Tricia Owens

Las Vegas is over a rift to Hell; the Western Infernus Rift. The demon Vagasso is trying to open it. The demon, the rift; all comes to a (satisfying) conclusion. I did not expect there to be a cliff hanger ending. But there is.

GHOST SEER by ROBIN D. OWENS
Ghost Seer - Robin D. Owens

So predictable. I could have written the plot myself and I'm not a writer. The romance was strange - he liked her, he didn't, he liked her again. She let him make all the decisions regarding whether they saw each other or not which was really not satisfying. The ending was a little sappy. But if you're in the mood for a predictable, feel good, happy ending book with paranormal aspects, then this is the one for you!
