Dee at Mum’s Writings has shared her thoughtful review of The Siren of Paris by David Leroy.
Here is a snippet:
The story tells of friendship, love, betrayal, guilt and forgiveness. The vivid imagery … captures the meaning of the war and experiences of the characters …
… As the story progresses the reader can understand how Marc’s past experiences are an important part of the present. Marc’s recollections fall into place as the layers of his life experiences throughout the war unfold. I highly recommend the book as poignant, compelling, and provocative. The book provides an excellent historical chronicle of life during World War II in France and the importance of the Resistance.

Rich in historical detail and full of suspense, this book explores the journey of one American from medical student, to artist, to political prisoner at Buchenwald Concentration Camp during World War Two.
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.
