About the Author
SHELLY SANDERS is the author of Daughters of the Occupation (Harper, 2022), a Canadian bestseller for four weeks. The novel is inspired by the discovery of her Jewish roots as an adult, and by her grandmother's family, many of whom were murdered during the Latvian Holocaust. Carol Memmott, of the Washington Post, says this "haunting novel refers not only to the victims of Latvia's Holocaust but also to their descendants, who carry the trauma of their ancestors."Shelly is also the author of three Young Adult historical fiction novels (The Rachel Trilogy, Second Story Press); the first received a Starred Review in Booklist, and two of the three were named Notable Books for Teens from the Association of Jewish Libraries.Follow Shelly on Twitter @shelly_sanders and on Instagram: fictionbyshellysanders
