Editorial Reviews

Review

"Told with a keen eye toward history, but also with compassion and humanity, this is a tale as vast as China itself, and as personal as the workings of an individual soul. Gaynor's story of courage and strength will make you believe in the heroic spirit in each of us." -- Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours and The Book Of Lost Friends

"In her newest novel, Hazel Gaynor brings the reader all the way to Japanese-occupied China...A story of courage, friendship, and humanity in the bleakest of circumstances, Gaynor takes a slice of true history and brings it to vivid life. I loved these characters and rooted for them all the way." -- Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author

 “Hazel Gaynor again breathes fresh life into a lost piece of history...While the students and teachers are tested to the limits by the hardship and privations of war, this is ultimately a story of friendship and profound bravery. When We Were Young & Brave is transporting, important, and tremendously moving.” -- Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times best-selling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis

“In When We Were Young and Brave, Hazel Gaynor gifts readers with an extraordinary and unique story of war—one unlike any we have read before...With skill, warmth, and delicate grace, Gaynor peels back the layers of research and fact to reveal the tender heart behind this fascinating piece of history.” -- Lynda Cohen Loigman, USA Today bestselling author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters

"When We Were Young & Brave is a stunning novel of resilience and hope as a Girl Scout troop must brave the hardships of life in a Japanese internment camp during WWII. Set amidst the captivating, colorful backdrop of China, Gaynor enchants with her masterful storytelling...not to be missed!" -- Heather Webb, USA Today bestselling author

"With her latest, Gaynor unveils a fresh perspective in World War II historical fiction, one that profoundly reveals the power of resilience and community in troubled times. Deeply moving and unforgettable."
-- Fiona Davis, national bestselling author of The Lions of Fifth Avenue

"A compelling story of innocents caught up in the machine of global conflict, so wonderfully written and soul-stirring. Gaynor beautifully explores the heart’s brave struggle to make sense of the upside-down world that is war. Well done!" -- Susan Meissner, bestselling author of The Last Year of the War

"I couldn't put When We Were Young & Brave down. This wonderful story about the Chefoo's School's courageous educators and tenacious students can teach us all something about the power of hope and perseverance in the face of crisis and uncertainty." -- Elise Hooper, acclaimed author of Fast Girls and The Other Alcott

"Hazel Gaynor’s novels are so well researched and so rich in detail that one cannot help but be swept away to a time and place far removed from our own and live the drama through characters so beautifully realized that one walks amongst them. An absolute treat for any reader..." -- Liz Nugent, Irish Times #1 bestselling author of Our Little Cruelties

"Important. Heartrending. Hopeful...I was moved to tears...as Gaynor paid witness to the extraordinary bravery and resilience of the teachers and children of Chefoo School…Hazel Gaynor is an author who never fails to shine a bright light onto our historical pasts, making real-life events and characters dance on the page." -- Carmel Harrington, Irish Times bestselling author of A Thousand Roads Home

“The latest novel from bestselling English author Hazel Gaynor is reminiscent of J.G. Ballard’s powerful classic Empire of the Sun…” -- BookPage
