Nina Siegal’s upcoming nonfiction debut The Diary Keeper’s is off to a great start with a starred Publishers Weekly Review on October 24th 2022
“This diverse and enlightening collection of excerpts from journals kept during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands is an essential contribution to the history of WWII. Drawing from an archive of more than 2,100 wartime diaries . . . [Siegal] contextualizes her primary sources with exhaustive research and analysis of contemporaneous records. . . .  [A] vivid portrait of the Nazi occupation as it unfolded, providing a wider lens than many Holocaust histories. . . . [A] treasure trove of firsthand perspectives.”—Publishers Weekly (starred)

This brilliant debut YOU BELONG HERE NOW is reminiscent of Christina Baker Kline’s The Orphan Train and Kristina McMorris’s Sold on a Monday. William Kent Kruger writes “You won’t find a finer debut novel anywhere.”
Over 1600 five star reader’s rave reviews
