03/14/2017 - Book Signing: Susan Meissner
Susan Meissner is a former managing editor of a weekly newspaper and an award-winning columnist. She is the author of Secrets of a Charmed Life, A Fall of Marigolds, and Stars Over Sunset Boulevard.

Wartime intrigue spans the lives of three women past and present in the latest novel from the acclaimed author of Secrets of a Charmed Life.

February, 1946. World War Two is over, but the recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Resistance spy. Now the two women are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to cross the Atlantic and be reunited with their American husbands. Their new lives in the United States brightly beckon until their tightly-held secrets are laid bare in their shared stateroom.
