Two American sisters risk their lives in Nazi-Occupied
Paris to save British fliers from arrest. The Gestapo
a trap and on the bleak Christmas Eve of 1940, death is
only a step behind.
I was a child during WWII and the war dominated our
Family members served in the Army or Navy. We followed the
faraway course of the fighting in huge black newspaper
headlines. Food and gasoline were rationed.
The war remained vivid in my memory and, as an adult,
wrote several WWII suspense novels. To sell Escape from
Paris, I cut the book from 93,000 to 55,000 words. That
version was published in 1982 and 1983.
This month, to my great delight, Oconee Spirit Press
publishing the original uncut manuscript, which has a
amended 2011 copyright. It has been 30 years in coming but
now ESCAPE FROM PARIS is available as it was written.
I hope readers will share the struggles of brave men
and women who defied the Gestapo during the bitter winter
of 1940. They knew fear, found love, grieved loss. Their
lives and deaths remind us that freedom survives only when
the free are brave.
In 1940, England awaited invasion and the Nazis
devoured Europe. I believe this book will appeal to book
club readers, highly intelligent women, often of a certain
age, who will bring their own memories or memories of
parents into play.
