SYNOPSIS

Based on the lives of a small group of American women secret agents working for British intelligence parachuting into France to help the Resistance during WW II.

The year is 1942, and American secret agent Catherine Thornton has no idea whether she will be dropped behind enemy lines in an inflatable raft launched from a submarine or be flung through the moonlit sky from a low-flying British Halifax. Either way, the young embassy wife and erstwhile journalist knows there’s always the chance she’ll be picked off by German sharpshooters, although nothing in her imagination prepares her for the trial-by-fire to come.

Only she understands why she volunteered for such “unwomanly warfare” and the secret reasons she joined a handful of female American spies destined to risk her gilded life on French soil–yet former Vichy diplomat Henri Leblanc, code name Claude Foret, thinks he knows the answers.

As Catherine’s missions grow more harrowing each day, and she fears she’s fallen in love with a captured fellow agent, the German SS begin to close in on the world of Madame “Colette Durand” and her Résistance network embedded in coastal cities along the French Riviera—an exposure that could threaten the Allied victory itself.

And hanging in the air like a half-opened parachute is the life-or-death question: Who is the betrayer and who will be betrayed in this, their finest hour?

SYNOPSIS

Nazi Germany is ruled by Hitler’s barbaric policies of racial cleansing. Ingrid Marchand’s only sin was to be born black. Horrifying institutions like Hadamar are where the undesirables – including the mentally and physically disabled and children – are systematically tortured, gassed and executed. It is where Ingrid is humiliated and brutalised and will encounter a depth of hatred the world has never seen before.
On the brink of starvation, can Ingrid survive the horrors of her incarceration and help bring her tormentors to justice?
Hadamar is a gripping tale of survival in a world of hatred, horror and insanity.

TOUR QUOTATIONS

 

Musings of a Writer & Unabashed Francophile

“Despite the dark subject matter, the book was compelling, and especially the protagonist, Ingrid.
This was well worth the read. I expect it would be of special interest to those studying WWII, or other subjects attached to it. I’d like to read other books by this author as their writing is strong and I expect they would do well no matter what their subject.”

Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers 

“a YAlit Historical title you won’t want to miss.
To be quite honest, this one cut me to the quick.
I must tip my hat to the author…
All in all, a moving novel set in a period of history we’d rather forget, but is best remembered so we don’t repeat the same mistakes.”

Locks, Hooks and Books

“Hadamar: The House of Shudders is a powerful read and not those who are wanting to read something light. It is sad, dark and needs to be read slowly to grasp the whole story. It is hard to believe these events in pretty recent history and we all should never forget.
I highly recommend Hadamar: The House of Shudders and am giving it five plus stars.”

Svetlana’s Reads and Views

“This book packs a lot of punches to the heart…
I am glad that the author brought this atrocity to light, showing that time cannot hide evil.”
