Julie shares her review of The Siren of Paris at Angler’s Rest — http://anglersrest.blogspot.com/2012/09/sirens-of-paris-by-david-leroy.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.

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.

Dee at Mum’s Writings Reviews The Siren of Paris

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.

Debut Author David Leroy Is Guest Blogger at Historical Tapestry

Debut author David LeRoy visited Historical Tapestry, sharing a guest post titled “Why I Love Ocean Liners.” He discussed how, while doing background research for his World War II novel The Siren of Paris, he learned about a little known historical event: the sinking of the RMS Lancastria, a small one stack Cunard liner that took on over 7,000 British soldiers and civilian refugees on June 17th, 1940. The exact number is unknown, because they stopped counting at 7,000. This tragedy was covered up by the British government. In his guest post, Leroy also talks about why ocean liners fascinate him. Please visit Historical Tapestry and read the article here: http://historicaltapestry.blogspot.com/2012/07/why-i-love-ocean-liners-by-david-leroy.html.
