“White Rose, Black Forest is partly a lyrical poem, an uncomfortable history lesson, and a page-turning thriller that will keep the reader engaged from the beginning to the end.” —Flora J. Solomon, author of A Pledge of Silence
“There is much to praise in Eoin Dempsey’s White Rose, Black Forest, but for me it stands out from the glut of war fiction because of its poetic simplicity. The novel does not span a massive cast of characters, various continents, and the entire duration of the conflict. It is the tale of one young man, one young woman, and the courage to change the tide of a war. Emotional, taut, and deftly drawn, White Rose, Black Forest is a stunning tale of bravery, compassion, and love.” —Aimie K. Runyan, bestselling author of Daughters of the Night Sky
“Dempsey’s World War II thriller is a haunting page-turner. The settings are detailed and the characters leap off the page. I couldn’t put this book down. An instant bestseller.” —James D. Shipman, bestselling author of It Is Well and A Bitter Rain
“A gripping story of heroism and redemption, White Rose, Black Forest glows with delicate yet vivid writing. I enjoyed it tremendously.” —Olivia Hawker, author of The Ragged Edge of Night
“Tense, taut, and tightly focused, White Rose, Black Forest is a haunting novel about courage and compassion that will keep you gripped from the very first page.” —Colin Falconer, bestselling author of The Unkillable Kitty O’Kane
