"Good people coping with an impossible situation are at the heart of Druart's [writing]."--Publishers Weekly, Praise for While Paris Slept
"A wonderful book--an involving, terrifying, heartbreaking story of the power of love and forgiveness."--Jill Mansell, Sunday Times bestselling author
"A wonderful, moving, sad, but ultimately uplifting book."--Lesley Pearse, Sunday Times bestselling author
"These characters command sympathy . . . A vivid exposé of war and its dislocations."--Kirkus
"Engrossing . . . a tender, yet thrilling story of love and family secrets in a time of war, beautifully told."--Rachel Hore, Author of One Moonlit Night
"Ruth is an exceptional storyteller. She weaves brave female characters through fascinating storylines. Her level of detail brings the past back to life, shining a light in the darkness. Love, loss, bravery. She's like my favorite history teacher ever! My new go to author. I recommend her to everyone."--Ericka Waller, Author of Dog Days
"The four-year occupation of France by the Germans in WW2 must be one of the most intensively fictionalised episodes in history. It takes an inventive author to find a new perspective on this well-surveyed landscape. Ruth Druart is such an author . . . An engrossing and psychologically complex novel which helps to explain why the Occupation still so fascinates us."--Historical Novel Society
