Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, is probably the best book I’ve read in a while. I wanted it read it after I read an bit Amazon.com. I knew I would love it and I soooo did!! I was telling Randy, Stuart’s biz partner, about this book and he had read it and was so excited that I was reading this amazing story. Definitely not for the quaint at heart, this book is a WWII story of survival and ultimately forgiveness. Unbroken tells the story of  Louis Zamperini, a fighter, utilizing the many meanings of the word. Phyically, mentally, and emotionally. The best part of the book is that you get a great history lesson along with a squeeze and pull of your heart strings. My grandfather, Olen Hughes, fought in WWII, he was a paratrooper jumping out of planes into Germany…I believe Germany. My respect for our vets, this war and my grandfather magnified after reading Unbroken. If you have any connection to a WWII vet please read this book. If you don’t read it anyway!! It will rock your world!!!
