Lovely article in the Sanford Herald today-Shedding Light on the Other Side about Darker the Night.  If you don't have a subscription to the Sanford Herald, I've posted the article on the In The News page of my website.

 
 
On the Darker the Night Facebook page, I've posted a couple of interesting tidbits on life in Germany during World War II.

Here is todays:
Another interesting tidbit about WWII Germany:
To illuminate their targets at night, the Allies sent planes in advance of the bombers to drop green flares. The German civilians called them “Christmas Trees” and knew that they had a only few moments to get to a shelter.

I can't imagine wandering around a war-torn country, but I guess if you need a ride, a tank might be useful. Check out the latest video on The Real Hedy page

I've added a page on the DarkertheNight.com called The Real Hedy. I'll be posting interviews with Hilde Sensale, the woman who inspired the story and other things I have found interesting.

Having been fortunate enough to have never lived in a war zone, I wondered what it was like to see the tanks coming into your town. Here's what she said.

The first review just came out for Darker the Night from D. Donovan, a Senior Reviewer from the Midwest Book Review!

“…a stunningly realistic, absorbing quality that will make it a powerful juxtaposition to Diary of Anne Frank, recounting the youth experience from quite a different vantage point and making it a special recommendation…"
