Cover Reveal: The Girl I Left Behind- Andie Newton

I’m delighted to have been invited to reveal the cover of Andie Newton’s latest book, ‘The Girl I Left Behind’.

About the book

What would you risk to save your best-friend?

As a young girl, Ella never considered that those around her weren’t as they appeared. But when her childhood best-friend shows Ella that you can’t always believe what you see, Ella finds herself thrown into the world of the German Resistance.

On a dark night in 1941, Claudia is taken by the Gestapo, likely never to be seen again, unless Ella can save her. With the help of the man she loves, Ella must undertake her most dangerous mission yet and infiltrate the Nazi Party.

Selling secrets isn’t an easy job. In order to find Claudia, Ella must risk not only her life, but the lives of those she cares about.

Will Ella be able to leave behind the girl of her youth and step into the shoes of another?

Perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, The German Midwife and Kate Furnivall.

About the author

Andie Newton is an American writer living in Washington State with her husband and two boys. She writes female-driven historical fiction set in WWII. The Girl I Left Behind is her first novel. She would love to say she spends her free time gardening and cooking, but she’s killed everything she’s ever planted and set off more fire alarms than she cares to admit. Andie does, however, love spending time with her family, ultra trail running, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.

The Other Girl- Pam Jenoff

This is a short story linked to The Winter Guest from the same author. Set in Poland during WWII, we are introduced to the main character Maria, whose husband has been sent away to fight. The story tells of her meeting with a young girl who has been forced to flee her home.

Although short, family ties and relationships are explored and the ending, while abrupt, gives enough of a taster to make you want to read the full novel to find out what happens to the characters afterwards.
