Teaser Tuesday: Portrait of a Woman in White by Susan Winkler




. . . Göring turned back with a swirl of his cape and fixed his piercing blue eyes on Claude. He said, in perfect French, "Normally, I look for Renaissance painters and the Dutch school, but here in Paris I find I'm attracted to French art, especially the romantiques – the nudes."

-- Portrait of a Woman in White by Susan Winkler, published by She Writes Press, available in paperback and a Kindle edition.

Young lovers are torn apart when Lili Rosenswig flees Paris with her family as the Nazis invade and her husband-to-be stays to defend his country.  When the Nazis loot a Matisse portrait of Lili's mother, art, love, and war are entwined in an enthralling new historical novel.
