About the Book and Author
Susan Meissner is a beloved San Diego author, speaker, and workshop leader whose book, The Shape of Mercy, was named by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the best 100 novels of 2008.
Her newest book, Secrets of a Charmed Life, is set in 1940’s England, as Hitler wages an unprecedented war against London’s civilian population. As one million children are evacuated to foster homes in the rural countryside, fifteen-year old Emmy and her younger sister Julia find refuge in a charming Cotswold cottage.
Emmy’s burning ambition to return to the city and apprentice with a fashion designer pits her against Julia’s profound need for her sister’s presence. Acting at cross purposes just as the Luftwaffe rains down its terrible destruction, the sisters are cruelly separated, and their lives are forever transformed.
