The Winter Horses
Ages 10 and up. 1941: Max, the devoted caretaker of an animal preserve, must learn to live with the Nazis. He must also learn to keep secrets, for there is a girl hiding in the park. Kalinka has lost her home, her family, her belongings, everything but her life. Still, she has gained one small, precious gift: a relationship with the rare wild and wily Przewalski's horses that wander the preserve. When a Nazi campaign of extermination nearly wipes them out, Kalinka sets out across the frozen Ukrainian forest to save the only two surviving horses - and herself.

Peter Wimsey #08: Murder Must Advertise
When Victor Dean dies from a fall down the stairs at Pym's Publicity, a respectable London advertising agency, it looks like an accident. But the victim had hinted to the firm's owner about some scandal in the company. When Mr. Pym asks Lord Peter to investigate, he goes in undercover, posing as a new copywriter.

Recommended by Elizabeth: One of my favorites in the series! Wimsey makes a surprisingly good ad man, and Sayers gently pokes fun at advertising while accurately depicting the maddening vagaries of indecisive clients and rigid deadlines.
