Celebrate Lit Presents: : A Picture of Hope Epic Book Launch


A Photojournalist Risks Her Life to Save Children

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.

Journalist Nellie Wilkerson has spent the bulk of the war in London, photographing pilots taking off and landing—and she’s bored. She jumps at the chance to go to France, where the Allied forces recently landed. She enlists Jean-Paul Breslau of the French underground to take her to the frontlines. On the journey, they come upon an orphanage where nuns shelter children with disabilities. Can they help save them before the Nazis come to liquidate it?

Book Excerpt:

Jean-Paul fell to his knees. His carelessness was going to cost many people their lives. Including his own. ***Wednesday, May 31, 1944 “But Eisenhower won’t hear of it.” Martha Klein sat at the bar of the Dorchester Hotel in London and swirled the honey-gold liquid in her glass which glittered underneath the lights. Piano music flitted from the baby grand in the corner of the lounge. Having seen too often what drink did to both men and women and the monsters it could turn them into, Nellie Wilkerson nursed her sugarless cup of coffee. “We can’t let the military brass stop us from being on the ground to cover the invasion of France.” “Butwhat can we do?” Frances Cannes, on Nellie’s left, held the delicate stem of her wineglass between her fingers. “If the military won’t let us in, there’s no other way. It’s not like we can take a commercial flight to Paris.” Martha laughed, but Nellie bit the inside of her lip. She hadn’t fought her way here, overcoming hurdles and busting through roadblocks, to be stymied now. The biggest story of the war, maybe of her entire life, was about to unfold.
