MY BOOK BEGINNING
Tomorrow was to have been her wedding day.
They allowed themselves just a few hours before nightfall to pack – a single suitcase for each of them, and only what they could easily carry.
-- Portrait of a Woman in White by Susan Winkler, published by She Writes Press.
When Nazis invade Paris in 1940, lovers are torn apart and a Matisse portrait goes missing. This enthralling story of love, war, and art should be at the top of your Must Read list!
