Naida shares a guest post by debut author David LeRoy at …the bookworm… LeRoy discusses the research that went into creating The Siren of Paris, his historical novel about the French resistance to the Nazis in World War II. He talks about the ordinary, yet heroic, people he read about and how deeply they inspired him.
“Three books inspired me to spend all this time and effort in research. The authors are long gone, but the words they left behind guided my path.” Of one of these books, he wrote: “The first time I read this book, it completely took over my life and imagination until I finished it.”

Rich in historical detail and full of suspense, The Siren of Paris explores the journey of one American from medical student, to artist, to political prisoner at Buchenwald Concentration Camp during World War II.
Marc, a French born American student, never suspected that he would become trapped in German occupied France when he came to Paris in the summer of 1939 to study art. While smuggling a downed airman out of the American Hospital, through the Paris resistance underground, his life is plunged into total darkness when someone he trusts becomes a collaborator agent for the Gestapo. Marc then must fight to save his soul when he is banished to the “Fog and the Night” of Buchenwald, where he struggles with guilt over the consequences of having his trust betrayed.
