Sophia Magdalena Scholl reading.
Scholl (1921-1943) was a German student and revolutionary, active within the White Rose non-violent resistance group in Nazi Germany. She was convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with her brother Hans. As a result, they were both executed by guillotine. Her last words were “Die Sonne scheint noch”—”The sun still shines.”
Charity shop find! I picked up this old Everyman paperback edition of Mansfield Park from 1963 while browsing Oxfam today. A lot of people don’t like Fanny Price but I find her easy to identify with and really like this novel.
Currently reading: Infinite Sky by C.J. Flood. Love this cover.
I recently made a list of gifts for book lovers, so thought I’d make one for writers, too! All gifts are from Etsy.
