Pam Jenoff: Best selling author of the Kommandant's Girl

The Winter Guest

Life is a constant struggle for the eighteen-year-old Nowak twins as they raise their three younger siblings in rural Poland under the shadow of the Nazi occupation. The constant threat of arrest has made everyone in their village a spy, and turned neighbor against neighbor. Though rugged, independent Helena and pretty, gentle Ruth couldn't be more different, they are staunch allies in protecting their family from the threats the war brings closer to their doorstep with each passing day.

Then Helena discovers an American paratrooper stranded outside their small mountain village...

...Brisk, romantic and emotionally satisfying. ~ Booklist

...a book that sweeps the reader into a whirlwind of love, tragedy, history and hope, and created an irresistible and unpredictable cast of characters whom you will not soon forget. I was thoroughly taken by it.~ David Gillham

    Writer and reader friends how do we feel about bookstore signings? I want to love them but am gunshy with turnout, etc. What works for you?

    That they were ordinary Poles with nothing of interest to anyone was their one saving grace. None of this had anything to do with them.
