NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For readers of The Nightingale and Sarah’s Key, inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this remarkable debut novel reveals the power of unsung women to change history in their quest for love, freedom, and second chances.

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.

An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences.

For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Once hired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

‘So there’s a bit of a war going on at the moment. Boys against girls. You know how it is.’ --- Sometimes you want to solve the world’s really big problems. Other times it’s hard enough to solve the problems you caused when you were trying to solve those first ones. Lilac is reading her granny’s recently discovered diary hoping for comfort and guidance, but what she finds there raises more questions than it answers. Was Granny really a spy? Who was the man with the fascinating eyebrows? And what’s the story with all the pineapples? Lilac Blue is the third book in the Lilac the Girl series, a quirky-sweet insight into the trials and tribulations of an Irish schoolgirl and her friends and family, for independent readers aged 9 to 12 and up.

The bishop looked all cross and muttered ‘What? What?’ and he shouted ‘LILAC SHROVE?’ as if he had never heard of either of those names in his life. And not as if he felt they were both beautiful names that he’d just never thought of before, either. I nodded and he went really purple and said, very slowly, ‘Shrove is not the name of a saint.’ I was scarlet. ------ Sometimes, ten-year-old Lilac feels as if she spends her life going from one mortifying event to the next, with barely a pause between. Even things that are meant to be fun, like her birthday party, end up turning her pink with embarrassment. But there’s a mystery to solve and a burglar to catch, not to mention her teacher’s wedding to plan. Can Lilac and her friends (and ever-faithful Guzzler the dog) take control of the situation and save the day? Or will Lilac be scarlet once again? Lilac in Scarlet is the second book of the Lilac the Girl trilogy, fiction set in Ireland for readers aged 9-12. Look for Lilac in Black and White, out now, and Lilac Blue, coming soon.
