Book Description

A tale of passion. Of heroes, hope, and the consequences of creating extraordinary music amidst the dark nights of World War II.

Swept back in time to Nazi-held France, concert pianist and composer Erin Meyer protects members of the Resistance by ghost-writing music for an influential German officer. She's now performing for her life - and for those in the Resistance. But what she thought was already a maze of confusion becomes even more mystifying when she helps a wounded British pilot evade capture. Arick Ambrose. She recognizes him from her own life and time. Erin's attraction to Arick could prove deadly as the German officer who holds the key to Erin's return demands more than she is willing to give. And if she returns home, will she ever find Arick again? For Erin, time is running out.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"You'll be hooked from page one of this mesmerizing tale, which uses a beguiling method of transport to the past.  The prose is smooth and satisfying, and the characters come alive.  Passion and promise fill the pages, as well as fear and deception." ~ D. M. Brown, RT Book Reviews


"Soliloquy is a haunting story of love in the past and the present and the question is: Which influences the other? The characters are well-written and precise, and the tension and danger acutely defined... One might say there are two endings to this story, one bittersweet and one triumphant; both are guaranteed to tug at your heart." ~ Toni Sweeney, Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth read February 1, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading this World War II time-travel romance was like sliding a warm knife through butter: I just couldn't stop. Fogg's prose is smooth and cool, her characters vivid and elegant. Aside from A Wrinkle In Time this was my first time travel book, and I'm not quite sure how the author suspended my disbelief, but she did so completely. One memorable scene captured the mood of the whole book: two main characters sit alone together in a room with the blinds pulled down, threatened, intimate, cut off from normal time and life, yet hopeful and seeking refuge in one another. We need more books like this: original and intelligent, historically aware, with smooth writing and romance made more effective by its reserve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich and Intriging February 24, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beautifully written. Engages the reader. Description is rich and full, allowing the reader to become wrapped up in and experience all that is happening - smell the smoke, join the dance and hear the music, and feel the longing and sacrifice. I was left with a longing to know what comes next and what came before Erin received the box. I look forward to more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I Could Savor It Longer February 4, 2010
By Karen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Janet Fogg has written a brilliant, and not too sentimental, story about a woman, Erin, who travels back in time to WWII where she encounters, for the second time, her true love and affects the world she touches. The fact that she's a concert pianist and makes full use of her talent while back in time was a treat for this reader.

In a world in which an egg and a bisquit is a meal for royalty, Erin is at the mercy of a Nazi tyrant enamored of her musical compositions. She must scrape together obedience to protect others. But she does so heroically. With each of Erin's shivering piano performances, she wrings "smoke and dust and wicked heat from the piano." Not to mention every forlorn and mysterious emotion.

One of the people she must protect is one she knows from another time, Aric, a downed pilot she helps nurse back to health. Loving him through decades, she's driven to "nuzzle the inside of his wrists and count the beat of his heart with her lips." But there's no guarentee that Aric will remember her when she plays Soliloquy.

Erin must decide whether or not to pursue what she truly wants, instead of cast it aside. Aric worries Erin may be a spy.

Erin's desires for love and happiness "are shadows filling her throat" keeping Aric at a distance. When he doesn't remember her, something also catches in the readers' throats. We yearn on Erin's behalf. Fogg teases us, putting Erin's love interest within reach, then yanking him away. Fogg makes us wait to see if Aric will have the opportunity to chase the "flutter from her limbs into her heart." And ours.

Sure, we know their name sakes exist today and yesterday, but until you read the book you'll have to wonder if a Nazi guard pulls a trigger, ending Erin's dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shannon February 4, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Soliloquy, a time travel romance by Janet Fogg is a tightly woven story of a love that transcends time. When concert pianist and composer, Erin Lockhart Meyer, is transported to WW II occupied France, she is thrust into a world of danger beyond imagining. She alone has a slim chance to save not only a houseful of good people but the eternal love of her life, British fighter pilot, Arick Ambrose.

Fogg has written a romance for lovers of history, story and characters. The plot reaches far beyond the hero/heroine conflict, taking readers to a different time and place, immersing us in a world of heart-stopping threat and soul-wrenching devotion. In Erin and Arick, we see noble and brave characters we admire and care for deeply.

Fogg is a master at drawing scenes so vivid we smell campfire and feel the burn in our eyes, hear the swell of music to stir the soul and thrill to the first touch of skin on skin. Because I needed to know if and how Erin could defy the Nazis and what would happen to those she cared about and especially if she and Arick could survive the horrific situation, and how they would manage the insurmountable obstacle of living in different times, I sped through this book faster than I would have wanted. I was rewarded with unexpected twists and a romance that rang true. The way Fogg puts her words together and sets the tone and mood should be savored more than my patience could withstand. This is a book I will read again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love in the Past and the Present... September 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"Remember me when you play Soliloquy..."

Soliloquy is a haunting story of love in the past and the present and the question is: Which influences the other? It's also the narrative of a world at war and a country held captive by invaders. This tale brings out facts not usually thought about when considering the War in France, namely, what happened to the Americans living there, who couldn't or wouldn't leave when the occupation began because they had jobs, homes, and families?

The characters are well-written and precise, and the tension and danger acutely defined as the downed pilot is hidden by the Americans, and Erin and Arick fall in love (again). One might say there are two endings to this story, one bittersweet and one triumphant; both are guaranteed to tug at your heart.

This novel was supplied by the author and no remuneration was involved in the writing of this review.

More About the Author

Janet Fogg's focus on writing began in the 1990s when she was CFO for the coolest architectural firm in Boulder. Numerous manuscripts and fifteen writing awards later, Janet resigned from the firm to write full-time, and ten months after that she signed a contract for Soliloquy, a HOLT Medallion award of merit winner.

In July 2011 Casemate Publishing released Fogg in the Cockpit, co-authored by Janet and her husband Richard Fogg. Based on the wartime diary of Richard's father, Fogg in the Cockpit offers a first hand look at Howard Fogg's fascinating and often unexpected story as a fighter pilot during World War II.

Janet is currently penning several manuscripts while also collaborating on a thriller. She was the 2010 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Published Author Liaison, is a long-time member of RMFW, Pikes Peak Writers, and two fantastic critique groups.
