A Secret Life

I am pleased to introduce author Lee Carver. Lee has lived in six foreign countries and studied nine languages including German and French. She and her husband traveled extensively throughout Europe while living in Spain. A five-week World War II history tour covering the areas where her father-in-law fought created the stimulus for her latest novel, A Secret Life, a Christian historical World War II romance novel. Please continue reading to learn more about A Secret Life, or for more about Lee, visit her website at www.LeeCarverWriter.com.

The German Army of World War II rips Karl Von Steuben from his family and privileged life, forcing him to conceal his American sympathies and Jewish heritage. Stripped of every tie to his home country, he determines to escape. As he crawls to the Siegfried Line, only he knows the hiding place of gold ingots melted from the jewelry of death camp prisoners. Wounded after assuming the identity of a fallen American soldier, Karl briefly deceives even himself. Discharged and shipped to America, he discovers God's unmerited favor in a beautiful Atlanta nurse. But he must return to Germany or relinquish his family fortune and rear children under the name of another man. Will Grace forgive his duplicity and accept him as an American?

  2. Particularly timely given the 70th anniversary of WW II coming up next year. This war's impacts were far-reaching and often devastating.

  3. I really enjoyed this book. Karl was a very compelling character, with quite a dilemma. Wonderfully written!

  4. Thank you, ladies. Prism agreed to publish this one first because of several other books and a couple of movies being released. I didn't want anyone to think I copied ideas from others. The next book, Love Takes Flight, is contemporary and set in Brazil. It's coming out Dec. 3rd.
