The Red Shoe Book Club is reading:
The Mind of a Conservative Woman
by Marsha Blackburn
National Bestseller—New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal & Publisher's Weekly
The Bridge at Andau is James A. Michener at his most gripping. His classic nonfiction account of a doomed uprising is as searing and unforgettable as any of his best-selling novels.
For five brief, glorious days in the autumn of 1956, the Hungarian revolution gave its people a glimpse at a different kind of future - until, at four o’clock in the morning on a Sunday in November, the citizens of Budapest awoke to the shattering sound of Russian tanks ravaging their streets. The revolution was over.
But freedom beckoned in the form of a small footbridge at Andau, on the Austrian border. By an accident of history, it became, for a few harrowing weeks, one of the most important crossings in the world, as the soul of a nation fled across its unsteady planks.
Praise for The Bridge at Andau:
“Precise, vivid...immeasurably stirring.” (The Atlantic Monthly)
“Dramatic, chilling, enraging.” (San Francisco Chronicle)
“Superb.” (Kirkus Reviews)
