Books to Feature:  The Sixth Day, by Catherine Coulter, and Korea Reborn.  Thank Hyundai Motor America for the donation of the latter book.  

Our featured books this week are  The Sixth Day, by Catherine Coulter, and Korea Reborn: A Grateful Nation Honors War Veterans for more than 60 Years of Growth, a publication by Remember My Service Productions.

In The Sixth Day,  special agents Nicholas Drummond and Michaela Caine take on a ruthless mastermind when the deaths of several major political figures are revealed to be brilliant assassinations.  Roman Ardelean, a wealthy and enigmatic cybersecurity genius, quickly becomes a prominent suspect in their investigation. His fixation on curing his twin brother of a deadly blood disorder- coupled with his eerie connection to the infamous historical leader Vlad the Impaler- make him a force to be reckoned with…

Korea Reborn is a retrospective look at the Korean War and the years of prosperity that followed.  The photos and text tell the story from the perspective of both U.S. Veterans who served in the conflict, and the Koreans who prospered from the freedom left in their wake.  Beginning with the events that led up to the war, through the ensuing battlefields across the Korean Peninsula, and ultimately the transformation from a war-torn country into a vibrant, prosperous nation, this book encapsulates why freedom is worth fighting for.  

Korea Reborn is a donation from Hyundai Motor America to libraries across the country.  Special thanks to them for this lovely tribute!
