What Did You Do In The War Sister? image of book cover
The book is a fictional memoir based on actual events. Inspiration for the story came from hundreds of letters and other accounts written by Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur living in German-occupied Belgium and Italy during World War II. The author studied translated copies of the original documents and created a composite character and order of nuns to give voice to the letter writers.
