"Centering on a lesser-known facet of American history, WHEN WE MEET AGAIN is a gripping novel of history, art, and the power of love. Kristin Harmel's work is always riveting but her storytelling reaches new heights with a tale that is layered, complex, and satisfying to the last page."--bestselling author Michelle Gable on WHEN WE MEET AGAIN
"Kristin Harmel writes with such insight and heart that her characters will stay with you long after you've finished her books."
--New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffin on THE SWEETNESS OF FORGETTING
"Kristin Harmel...[is] one of my favorite authors!"
--bestselling author Melissa Senate on THE SWEETNESS OF FORGETTING
"Reminiscent of The Nightingale and The Map of the Heart, Kristin Harmel's THE ROOM ON RUE AMELIE is an emotional, heart-breaking, inspiring tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the enduring power of love."

--NYTimes bestselling author Mariah Stewart
"The strong and courageous inhabitants of THE ROOM ON RUE AMELIE occupied all my time until the tender and powerful final pages. Beautifully written, Kristin Harmel's latest is an unforgettable exploration of love and hope during the darkest of moments."--Amy E. Reichert, author of The Optimist's Guide to Letting Go
"Richly detailed and yet fast-paced, Harmel's story flows at remarkable depth, as ordinary citizens rise to the challenge of extraordinary circumstances in occupied France. A fascinating exploration of the escape routes set up for downed Allied pilots, readers will be swept up in this heart-wrenching drama."--Juliette Fay, author of The Tumbling Turner Sisters
"Set against all the danger and drama of WWII Paris, this heartfelt novel will keep you turning the pages until the very last word."--New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe
"Harmel's engrossing latest reminds us that love, like resistance, begins with courage."---- PEOPLE magazine on The Room on Rue Amélie, a PEOPLE Pick
"Harmel writes a poignant novel based loosely on the true story of an American woman who helped on the Comet Line, which rescued hundreds of airmen and soldiers. This compelling story celebrates hope and bravery in the face of evil."--Booklist
"Harmel injects new life into a well-worn story in this hopeful three-voiced tale about the struggle to find normalcy amid the horrors of WWII... Harmel's emotionally fraught story hammers home the message that each person has a unique opportunity to stand against injustice. This is a celebration of those, like Ruby, who found the courage to face life head-on."--Publishers Weekly
"Harmel's latest novel overlaps somewhat with recent book club favorites Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale and Martha Hall Kelly's Lilac Girls... recommended for fans of World War II historical fiction."--Library Journal
"Harmel...authentically weaves American history into this engaging novel. An appealing family saga that connects generations and reaffirms love."--Kirkus Reviews on WHEN WE MEET AGAIN
