Shortlisted!

So thrilled to announce that The Kulak's Daughter is on the Manitoba Book Awards shortlist for Young People (Older Category) Book of the Year Award. Pinch me! The winner will be announced at the end of April at a Gala event that I wanted to attend last year, but then felt too intimidated. It's okay if I don't win, truly - just being nominated gives me my confidence back.

Dear Gabriele; I'm so happy for you! Congrats!!! It must be so exciting to both see your book in print and be put on the short list. I finished the book and enjoyed it; however it is indeed very dark and sad. Will there be a sequel? I loaned it to my Mom to read. Alas, she found it disturbing, but she is thankful that her parents and grandparents were able to immigrate to America, just in the nick of time. How thankful we are for that. But oh, the poor people who were left behind. Many of our relatives were, but I think they all managed to move to Germany.

Thanks, Loretta. Perhaps your relatives left with the retreating German army - I hope you learn more.
