Praise for Defending Britta Stein:
This is historical fiction at its best...mystery, intrigue, suspense, and history, all intertwined into a riveting novel. --Elise Cooper, Military Press

I love the Liam Taggart and Catherine Lockhart novels. They're always well written and the characters are like old friends to visit every year...Another winner from Ronald H. Balson. --Red Carpet Crash

This brilliantly imagined novel [is] part courtroom drama, part historical reckoning. Chock-full of finely wrought detail about the war and dashed with suspense and intrigue, it's a must-read for historical fiction buffs. --Newsweek

"The reader grapples with the themes of good and evil, truth and lies, courage and betrayal, and punishment and revenge. Defending Britta Stein is an inspirational and absorbing work."
--Renita Last, Jewish Book Council

Praise for Eli's Promise:
A captivating saga of the Holocaust and its aftermath spanning decades and continents...Balson's meticulous historical detail, vivid prose and unforgettable characters further solidify his place among the most esteemed writers of historical fiction today. --Pam Jenoff, bestselling author of The Lost Girls of Paris

A powerful, superbly crafted tale...equal parts heartbreaking and life affirming, with themes that are as relevant today as ever. Eli's Promise is historical fiction at its finest, a riveting page turner that will hook readers from the start. --Jane Healey, bestselling author of The Beantown Girls

Balson juggles between his three stories effectively, writing with great emotion but without overt melodrama, always aware of the tragic ways in which history repeats itself. --Bill Ott, Booklist
