about

Seven decades after German troops march into her village, Céleste Roussel is still unable to assuage her guilt. 1943. German soldiers occupy provincial Lucie-sur-Vionne, and as the villagers pursue treacherous schemes to deceive and swindle the enemy, Céleste embarks on her own perilous mission as her passion for a Reich officer flourishes. When her loved ones are deported to concentration camps, Céleste is drawn into the vortex of this monumental conflict, and the adventure and danger of French Resistance collaboration. As she confronts the harrowing truths of the Second World War's darkest years, Céleste is forced to choose: pursue her love for the German officer, or answer General de Gaulle's call to fight for France. Her fate suspended on the fraying thread of her will, Celeste gains strength from the angel talisman bequeathed to her through her lineage of healer kinswomen. But the decision she makes will shadow the remainder of her days. A woman's unforgettable journey to help liberate Occupied France, Wolfsangel is a stirring portrayal of the courage and resilience of the human mind, body and spirit.

Maryline M's Bookshelf - http://mssbookshelf.blogspot.fr/2013/11/book-review-wolfsangel-liza-perrat.htmlExpectations were high for "Wolfsangel" after reading the brilliant Spirit of Lost Angels but Liza Perrat met all of them. Her wonderful storytelling catapults you back in time ... I cannot stress enough how amazing the "L'Auberge des Anges" series is!Jaffareadstoo TOP 500 AMAZON REVIEWER: http://jaffareadstoo.blogspot.fr/2013/11/in-conversation-with-liza-perrat.htmlThe emotional opening chapter sets the scene for a powerful and dramatic story, which takes the reader back to 1943, and to a dark time in France's history, when the German occupation of this tiny French village had a profound effect on those who lived and worked under the shadow of cruelty and repression. With superb skill, the author has manipulated the narrative into a powerful depiction of a dark and dangerous time. Beautifully researched, and based on historical factual evidence, the story has an emotional depth which pervades and which reveals a story of courage, bravery and unforgettable heroism.Anne Cater: TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE : http://randomthingsthroughmyletterbox.blogspot.fr/2013/11/wolfsangel-by-liza-perrat.htmlLiza Perrat's writing is full of passion and realism, the reader is drawn into the action and becomes part of the village from the opening chapters. The brutality of war, and of human behaviour is laid bare by the author who is not afraid to include the full horror of events. Wolfsangel is a fascinating, forceful and extremely well researched novel that will thrill historical fiction fans. Liza Perrat writes elegantly, with feeling and authority.L. H. Healy (TOP 500 REVIEWER): http://thelittlereaderlibrary.blogspot.fr/2014/06/wolfsangel-liza-perrat.html?spref=fbThe novel depicts the bravery of resistance that many ordinary people displayed in those terrible times. The author has evidently researched this period well and has created a vivid, believable backdrop against which her engaging, honest tale is told. I felt admiration, shock and sadness as I read this story; the awful truth of some events during wartime is not avoided here. This is an absorbing, well-researched and well-written novel ideal for anyone who enjoys reading historical fiction.ReadingInTheSunshine (TOP 100 REVIEWER): http://readinginthesunshine.wordpress.com/tag/wolfsangel/Wolfsangel is a powerful story that has stayed with me since finishing the last page...wow.
