Madeline Martin
Author of “The Keeper of Hidden Books”   

Bestselling author of the historical novels “The Last Bookshop in London” and “The Librarian Spy,” Madeline Martin shares a heartwarming story about the power of books to bring us together, inspired by the true story of the underground library in WWII Warsaw. All her life, Zofia has found comfort in two things during times of hardship: books and her best friend, Janina. But no one could have imagined the horrors of the Nazi occupation in Warsaw. As Hitler’s forces loot and destroy the city, Zofia jumps to action to save her friend and salvage whatever books she can from the wreckage. But the closer Warsaw creeps toward liberation, the more dangerous life becomes for the women and their families – and escape may not be possible for everyone. 

Books available from The Novel Neighbor.
