Book Giveaway - The Moon Looked Down by Dorothy Garlock

Thank you so much, Anna and Hatchette Books Group for this giveaway!

About The Moon Looked Down, courtesy of the publisher:


Sophie Heller's family immigrated from Germany to Victory, a small town in Illinois, before WWII began. Now that the war has affected the town, the townspeople discriminate against Sophie and her family. When a train derails, it is an accident but the Heller family is blamed. Coming to Sophie's rescue is a teacher from the high school, and despite their cultural differences, a romance starts to bloom.
