Here is a snippet:
Nothing is more real than fiction. Nothing helps us make sense of the real world more than fiction. Nothing instills in us empathy for others like fiction. (Bookriot). Possibly the most elegant sentence I have read in ages. I’ve always believed that fiction can move us into a better understanding of the world around us, the differences and similarities in people, and even create emotions within us that start our own personal changes
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.
