I was watching the Tour de France this morning and had to mention an audiobook I was fortunate to listen to and wanted to let you know about it.
With all of that is going on right now with this famous race, you must read this inspiring story about Gino Bartali and his famous feat as a cyclist and how he along with many others saved the lives of countless Jews during WW11.
His Tour De France feats are amazing in and of themselves, but what he accomplished during the war is even more amazing.
Jdl has this available in audio book format.

From the library catalog record:
Garth Nix is the author of one of my favorite fantasy series, the Abhorsen set.
Picture a high school student named “The Tao,” adopted at around the age of 5 by very loving parents named Jones. You can imagine the remarks when he went to school and announced his name was “The Tao Jones.” After a lot of anger therapy as a result of being abused and abandoned by his birth mother, he matured into a great kid who goes by TJ. He’s witty, incisive, self-aware – a great athlete and very well-adjusted.
