David Leroy Visits Allison at Musings of a Book Junkie

For a long time after Hitler’s Germany began invading other European countries, the French felt complacent. They didn’t believe the war would affect them. What gave them this sense of false security? David Leroy, author of The Siren of Paris, explores this question in a guest post at Musings of a Book Junkie: http://themusingsofabookjunkie.blogspot.com/2012/08/guest-post-with-david-leroy-author-of.html

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. It also delves into the French resistance during the Second World War.

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.
