About the Author

L. M. Elliott is the New York Times bestselling author of Da Vinci's Tiger; Under a War-Torn Sky; A Troubled Peace; Across a War-Tossed Sea; Annie, Between the States; Give Me Liberty; Flying South; and Hamilton and Peggy! She lives in Virginia with her family. You can visit her online at www.lmelliott.com.


An infrequently explored aspect of WWII history--German submarines torpedoing U.S. cargo ships along America's East Coast--underpins Elliott's (Walls) well-crafted novel. Evocative descriptions of the region's natural life ground this realistic depiction of one family's efforts to withstand depression and personal tragedy during wartime.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Evocatively threaded with the scents and sounds of Tidewater Virginia coastal communities, this story presents a fascinating, lesser-known aspect of the war told from a young girl's perspective. Successfully tackling the devastation of depression on family relationships, the bitter cost of war, and the uplifting strength of no-nonsense friendship, this story has impressive depth. Superb. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
From the very first page of Louisa June and the Nazis in the Waves, you'll know you're in the hands of a skilled storyteller. Vividly and lyrically told, L.M. Elliott captures the drama and heartbreak of the U-boat attacks on the Eastern U.S. coast during WWII.--Elisa Carbone, author of Blood on the River: James Town 1607
