Editorial Reviews

Review

  • This had a twist that I didn't see coming and that made it even better in my book! I'll definite watch for more books by this author.
  • This was a first person account, which had me sitting on the edge of my seat at times...
  • Such an emotional story.Gripping from the start. Loved the honesty, the betrail and the way the story transcends generations to tell the story.
  • A fabulous historical World War 2 novel set in Hungary.

From the Author

1) How many drafts did you have to write for this book?
LOVE IN A TIME OF WAR had a strange road to its creation. In September, I was working with an editor to complete a revision of my first novel, Mrs. Tuesday's Departure. After we'd finished, my editor and I began talking about Natalie's choices in the book, and what would have happened if she'd given herself a chance to fall in love again.
From there, I began writing, making changes to the manuscripts until Natalie found the love she believed was gone forever. Love in a Time of War is that story. I guess you'd say that this book has had both many drafts, and just one!
2) This would make a great film. Any talks of turning your book into a movie?
Not yet...but it would make a great film. I often imagine how it would play out in film form. World War Two films are so compelling because they show the human spirit at its best and worst.
3) If you could have dinner with one of your characters who would it be?
There is a very important dinner scene in the book between Natalie, Deszo, and Gunter. I would love to be a guest at that dinner. That was a pivotal scene in the story and the atmosphere was both beautiful and breathtaking.
4) What scene or bit of dialogue in the book are you most proud of and why?
When I created the new ending for LOVE IN A TIME OF WAR, I had to write a children's poem from Natalie to Mila. It is a charming and bittersweet poem that I hope conveys dearly Natalie thought of Mila as her own daughter.
5) What's up next for you?
I have two new novels coming out in 2014....
The first novel is set in Paris and asks the question: What would you do if you had one week to live?
The second novel is a murder mystery set in Moscow and reflects my years of living overseas.

This was a first person account, which had me sitting on the edge of my seat at times...the threat of being arrested and I prisoners, the loss of a loved one, the story is a sad but historically accurate one.

I LOVED this book! I really enjoy historical fiction. This was set in Budapest, and I’d never read this historical perspective before. It was suspenseful and intriguing and it was also a bit of a romance. The sacrifices people made for family and strangers alike to help protect them from the horrible inflictions raged on them by the Nazis. It is truly amazing the strength people have. To be forced to let your children go to America to live with complete strangers just to protect them….knowing you’d never see them again. Wow! It is really hard to imagine! This was a satisfying read even though I would have wanted the family to stay together. They did what they did in order to survive. I was impressed!

A fabulous historical World War 2 novel set in Hungary.
The story is set around Natalie who is the main character who cared for Mila when her mother betrayed her and escaped without her. She loves her Jewish niece like she is her own, and has to find a way of protecting her against the Nazi's.
It is also a poignant story based around her twin sister Anna, who is beginning to show signs of dementia.
Natalie turns to her teenage crush Deszo who she rejected by marrying her first love Max. Her sister was in love with Deszo which adds to sister rivalry.
A real nail biter towards the end not knowing if she would be betrayed by those she loved around her.

I loved the ending the way it told us what happened in the future. A brilliant novel, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Such an emotional story.Gripping from the start. Loved the honesty, the betrail and the way the story transcends generations to tell the story.Another book that is hard to put down. Not always a happy story, but a factual portrait of of what life was like in WW2.

The setting is Budapest during WWII. It focuses on the length people will go to save themselves or an other person during this difficult period with the Nazis. It helps to have money and connections during difficult times.
