It’s an exciting day, friends. A friend of mine from college, Amy Green, is publishing a novel this year with Bethany House Publishers and today we’re revealing the cover!
“Johanna Berglund didn’t want to return to her small Midwest town for any reason, and certainly not to become a translator at a German prisoner of war camp. She arrives to find the once-sleepy community exploding with hostility toward the prisoners and those who work at the camp. Her friend Peter Ito, a military intelligence instructor, encourages her to give the town that rejected her a second chance, and as Johanna interacts with the men of the camp and censors their mail, she begins to see the prisoners in a more sympathetic light. But when the men her country is fighting become the men she is fighting for, she must decide who to trust—and whose side she’s truly on.”
Things We Didn’t Say is an epistolary novel (it’s told entirely through letters, newspaper articles, and other documents). I’ve gotten a sneak peek at the first chapter, and it’s fantastic! I can’t wait to read the rest.
If you want to join me in pre-ordering the book, you can do so here. The book comes out in early November.
If you or someone you know loves historical fiction and sassy main characters, let them know about this book. I’ll be posting about it on my social media pages, so you can share this post or those.
Congratulations Amy! I can’t wait to see this book!
