Tracy Groot packs a powerful punch with her compelling story of characters…like Groot’s last novel of wartime (The Sentinels of Andersonville), Maggie Bright is a page-turner that will stay with you long after you are finished.

Publisher’s Weekly, May ’16

Two-time Christy winner Groot (Flame of Resistance) goes back to World War II in this affecting novel…Groot has a strong grasp of the period’s history and zooms in on the emotional dynamics of soldiers experiencing a profoundly bitter moment in history.

Groot may gain readers with this book…she deserves a bigger audience.”
