Broken Angels

A Nazi doctor. A Jewish rebel. A stolen child. Each one will fight for freedom—or die trying.

Imprisoned in the Lodz Ghetto, Elsi discovers her mother’s desperate attempt to end her pregnancy and comes face-to-face with the impossibility of their situation. Risking her own life, Elsi joins a resistance group to sabotage the regime.

Blonde, blue-eyed Matilda is wrenched from her family in Romania and taken to Germany, where her captors attempt to mold her into the perfect Aryan child. Spirited and brave, she must inspire hope in the other stolen children to make her dreams of escape a reality.

Willem, a high-ranking Nazi doctor, plans to save lives when he takes posts in both the ghetto and Auschwitz. After witnessing unimaginable cruelties, he begins to question his role and the future of those he is ordered to destroy.

While Hitler ransacks Europe in pursuit of a pure German race, the lives of three broken souls—thrown together by chance — intertwine. Only love and sacrifice might make them whole again.

My second historical fiction, Broken Angels is once again set in Poland and Germany in WWII. After the book release on April 26th, Broken Angels reached #1 in Literature & Fiction categories on Amazon.

Thanks again to the team at Lake Union Publishing, especially the wonderful editors and proofreaders I had the privilege of working with – Jodi, Shari, Robin & Jill – who added their professional polish.

Thank you also to the actors/narrators, Emily Foster and Nico Evers-Swindell, for their brilliant work on the audible version.

I'm thrilled to advise the recent release of the Slovak, Czech and Dutch editions of Broken Angels. My thanks to publishers, Ikar, Knizni klub and Uitgeverij Kok for their terrific work on the book!
