A little name change for 2019. Previously titled, Darkness before Dawn, Guernsey’s Last Daughter is a WW2 love story.
In June 1940, Germany bombed the Island of Guernsey, bringing World War II to the Channel Islands. With her home in the midst of war, jazz singer Catherine La Mar must adapt to change. Within days, the island is overrun. Resistance cells start to emerge, hindering the German forces. Catherine’s life is inevitably changed when childhood friend Thomas Potter is linked as the ringleader to one of the Island’s biggest cells.
But nothing could prepare her for when she meets Nazi officer Captain Max Engel. Her view on the war forever changes when she is given a chance for love and new beginnings. As the war intensifies and divides the people on Guernsey, Max and Catherine must decide if their love is really worth risking it all.

“Viola Craft’s marriage is one of duty and heartache, and desperately trying to please her older husband, Vernon. Despite all of her efforts, however, he still wants the one thing that she cannot–and will not–give him. This book is the slow-motion tumble of lives under siege. At times, Her Sweetest Downfall was challenging to read. Not because of any problems with the writing; much the contrary. The difficulties between the protagonist and her husband are well-rendered, and her indecision about what to do with her life in the face of societal constraints is painful and frustrating.
Readers will find themselves hoping Viola and those around her make the right choices and may feel a little heartbreak themselves. I guarantee there will be two points in the book that make readers stop and re-read, thinking that events couldn’t have turned out that way. These lost opportunities add a sad realism of the book, however. That said, without giving too many spoilers, the book comes to a satisfying, if unexpected, conclusion. Readers will find Her Sweetest Downfall a poignant read, at times a little frightening, but in the end, Viola’s downfall may also be her salvation.”
My next WW2 fiction novel Her Sweetest Downfall will be releasing on April 28th. Two releases this month already – I’m on a roll!
I’m very excited by this novel and I hope you all like it. I broke my tradition by publishing with another publisher. Blue Tulip Publishing has been very patient and supportive during the editing process and I’m looking forward to working with them in the future.
Her Sweetest Downfall is a forbidden love story set during the height of the London Blitz. Writing this novel was a challenging test for me and I put everything into this book.
Stay tuned for a buying link to Amazon and other retailers. I would love to hear your feedback when its out. Happy reading!
