Welcome to my bookshelf

Goodnight from Paris

In Nazi-occupied France, an American film star takes on the most dangerous role of her life in a gripping historical fiction novel about loyalty and resistance, inspired by a true story.

Goodnight from Paris is a portrait in courage, not of the men who lifted guns to rid their nations of tyranny, but of the women who fought to get the support of the United States for the cause via the airwaves. This deft rendering of Drue Leyton’s valiant efforts to report the atrocities of war to the American public deserves a place on the shelf of any lover of World War II fiction. Not to be missed.”

Jane Healey excels at showing ordinary women rising to the occasion in extraordinary circumstances. You'll be cheering for real-life forgotten heroine, American movie star Drue Leyton-Tartiere, as she turns down the chance to leave embattled France for Hollywood, and, instead, defies the Nazi occupiers, risking her life again and again in the cause of freedom. A riveting story of true heroism.”

The Secret Stealers

Bestselling historical fiction featuring a female American spy in Nazi-occupied France who finds purpose behind enemy lines in a novel of unparalleled danger, love, and daring.

The Secret Stealers is a flawlessly crafted and engrossing story of the unexpected ways in which war changes who we are. Once again, Healey gifts readers with her trademark characters: everyday women who prove themselves to be extraordinary—women so relatable, so endearing, and so brave that they jump off the page and into our hearts.

The Secret Stealers was an Amazon Editor’s First Reads Pick, one of the New York Post’s Best New Books April 2021, a Historical Novel Society’s Editor’s Choice and one of Cosmopolitan’s Best Historical Novels of 2021. 


The Beantown Girls

A WWII historical fiction novel of love, courage, and danger unfolds as the war’s brightest heroines—the best of friends—take on the front lines.

A fascinating novel about a little-known wartime sacrifice, The Beantown Girls is lovingly crafted, heartbreaking, and illuminated with hope. I couldn’t put it down!

The Beantown Girls is a Washington Post and  Amazon Charts Bestseller!

One of BookBub’s Biggest World War II Novels Hitting Shelves This Year!
