Karla M. Jay

Author Karla M. Jayabout this book: Three braided stories of courage and love echo across each other in the tragic backdrop of WWII.

A conflicted SS officer, a Nazi propaganda camp, and German-Americans, three fresh tales of which little has been documented.

-Kirkus Review- "... impressively ambitious, offering a sprawling view of the wages of war from three distinct perspectives. She ingeniously braids them into a coherent narrative tapestry, and along the way, she realistically describes the human degradation experienced by prisoners in the Nazi camps..."

Great historical fiction teaches and entertains. When We Were Brave finds three little-remembered stories that beg to be heard. Told with vivid detail and meticulous research, these stories involve complex characters who demonstrate the resilience of the human spirit set against a backdrop of evil and tragedy. - Firoozeh Dumas, New York Times Bestselling author of Funny in Farsi, and Laughing Without an Accent

When We Were Brave employs a dramatic triangle to create a highly-emotional, epic story of World War II, one that is as vivid as it is highly personal. Here is a moving, riveting tale that shows you how things once were--and how similar those times can feel to our own. Scott Lasser - Author of Say Nice Things About Detroit, Screenwriter for HBO's True Detective Series
