The Girl from Guernica
by Karen Robards
Praise For This Book:
"With gripping descriptions of bombings, fearful interrogations, and a blooming love story, Robards delivers a fantastic, captivating historical romance." --Booklist

"The Girl from Guernica is a riveting, high-stakes pager-turner that had my heart teetering in my throat and left tears in my eyes. Karen Robards gives us a meticulously researched story about the atrocities of the Guernica bombing that underscores the importance of reclaiming one's power and the impact of one's love for their family. I could not recommend this book more!"-Madeline Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Bookshop in London

"A stunning story of a family torn apart amidst the horrors of war, and a young woman's determination to persevere as the shards of her previous life fall with vicious stabs around her. With beautiful and excruciating detail, Robards pulls the reader into another time and place, proving once more she is a master of storytelling."-Noelle Salazar, USA TODAY bestselling author of The Flight Girls and Angels of the Resistance

"Dramatic, pacy and energetic, Robards's historic tale of approaching war lands with frightening contemporary relevance."-Jenny Lecoat, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl from the Channel Islands

"A truly outstanding novel, brilliantly written, that captured me and held me in its grip from page one. At its heart this story is about family love and the umbilical cords that stretch but never break. So much can be learnt from the telling of this story of what is truly important whether we live in a privileged, safe environment or in a theatre of conflict. The Black Swan of Paris reminds us of the power of love, hope and courage."-Heather Morris, #1 bestselling author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz
