The One Thousand White Women Series: Book #1
“Have you ever wonder what if this happened another way than it actually did? Well that’s exactly what this author wrote. He took a fact from history and wrote what it could have been like had the government said yes to the deal the chief of this tribe requested by exchanging 1,000 white women to marry and birth a child with the natives in return for horses. Yes it sounds insane but it’s intriguing to read an alternate version of reality with so many true facts mixed into this story. These women were anxious and scared yet ready to serve their country anyway they could. They immersed themselves into a whole new way of life from what they’ve always known. This is a favorite of our local book stores book club.”Danielle, The Book Center

“This poignant, previously untold story highlights a group of female spies in the resistance movement during World War II. Four women’s lives are entwined (only one of which is fictional), as one American, two Germans, and one German Jew gather intelligence to bring down the Third Reich from within. Beginning with an emotionally evocative description of the lead-up to the rise of Nazism and fascism, a unique perspective of events unfolds, offering a rare discussion of just how quickly societies can devolve, how the human spirit adapts to conflict and the loss of civil liberties, and how communities can be shamed and fearful of participating in any sort of resistance. In keeping with reality, when the Harnack resistance group is discovered, there are fatal consequences for these brave women. A detailed author’s note grounds the novel, amplifying the humanity of these women’s stories in this swiftly-moving, engaging read.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
