Item Description...
While digging up a withering wax myrtle tree beside his waterfront home on the Gulf coast, author Andy Andrews unearths a rusted metal container filled with Nazi artifacts and begins an intriguing investigation that unlocks an unspoken past that took place in his backyard . . . literally . . .
. . . In the summer of 1942, as the country gears up for a full-scale commitment to WWII, German subs are dispatched to the Gulf of Mexico to sink U.S. vessels carrying goods and fuel for the war. While taking a late-night walk along the coastline, Helen Mason-recently widowed by the realities of war-discovers the near-lifeless body of a German sailor. Enraged at the site of Josef Landermann's uniform, Helen is prepared to leave the lieutenant to die when an unusual phrase, faintly uttered, changes her mind.
Set in a period simmering with anger and suspicion, Island of Saints offers the very real chronicle of a small town preparing itself for the worst the world has to offer.

Island of Saints  Mar 12, 2007
I loved the book. Andy Andrews does a wonderful job retelling a true story while he teaches eternal truths. Awesome!
Good read  Feb 15, 2007
This was another great book by Andy Andrews. I've enjoyed all his books.
A shining book!  Aug 2, 2006
Loved the story and the familiar setting. A shining example of love and forgiveness.
Poignant. Powerful. Relevant. Sweet.  Jun 27, 2006
"Island of Saints" is about forgiveness. Harboring bitterness is like "drinking poison and waiting for the other guy to die". Forgiveness frees the wounded spirit of the wronged. It cleanses, frees, and releases the power of love for the aggrieved. It is powerful. It is central. It is essential for the life of faith, power, and strength.

To live a life of anger, bitterness, and unforgiveness is to live a life which is weak, powerless, and poor.

Andrews captures all of this in his parable. Great reading and a powerful message.
A Small Treasure  May 14, 2006
Generally I tend to avoid the self-help section, not out of arrogance, because in an imperfect world, the solutions offered are not a one-size-fits-all. Take my religion, lose weight my way, parent better children, be intolerant of those who do not measure up to perfect standards. This book has proven to be a pleasant surprise.
First, I was not looking to improve myself at the sale rack of our favorite children's bookstore. And here it was. Who have susupected a really good adult story that you could share with your children, or simply curled up with the cats and read. I, for once, expected nothing, and found a small treasure. Secondly, there's a really good story told here, with all the makings of a fable. The good guys win, and there's some unexpected characters: my favorite is Danny, the young man with Down syndrome. He's astutely portrayed, and lovingly given depth and sensibility. But, I am biased: my son has Down syndrome, and I love him.
Then for the history buff, there is the oft untold story of German U-boats in the Gulf of Mexico, small town life in the South during World War II, and, for good measure, a Nazi.
Third, and finally, there's forgiveness. Mr. Andrew's spin on that is worth the price of the book. He understands human frailty and fragile emotions, and has succeeded in going beyond the cliche "anger management" into a much more practical and liveable solution: forgiveness.
