BLOG TOUR COMING! Leo's War by Patricia Murphy

Good morning everyone. Just to give you a quick heads-up, starting on the 25th of August, there will be a wonderful blog tour featuring the newest addition to the Hands On History series published by Poolbeg Press. Leo's War by Patricia Murphy is the incredible story based on the activities of Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty (also known as "The Pimpernel of the Vatican") and the Rome Escape Line during the Nazi occupation of Italy in WWII.  Our hero is a young Irish boy, Leo, living in Italy at the time. When his mother is taken by the Nazis, Leo finds himself hiding out in the Vatican, under the protection of Monsignor O'Flaherty and quickly becomes ensconced in daring, sometimes deadly efforts to escape the Nazis' horrific regime. But enough! Don't want to spoil to the tour for anyone!

As you can see, there are quite a number of exciting blog events happening around this exciting new book. Fallen Star Stories' offering, a review of Leo's War and an interview with Patricia Murphy about the book and writing historical fiction for young people will appear on 29th August. I want to thank Patricia and Poolbeg Press in advance for asking me to be part of this blog tour. It is a unique opportunity to work in concert with so many fantastic bloggers and get to see the unique perspectives they bring.
So join me then...and join us all!
See you there!
