We are delighted to announce that Bookouture have acquired World English rights to two brand new historical World War II titles by Liz Trenow, in a a deal between Publishing Director Laura Deacon and Caroline Hardman.
Laura said: ‘As soon as I started reading Liz’s stunning novel, I knew I was in the hands of an absolutely exceptional storyteller. At its heart, this is a story about the strength of a mother’s love: from saving her daughter from being taken to the camps to then an epic journey of survival across several borders to find her again after the camps are liberated. I was completely blown away by Liz’s storytelling: historically rich and packed full of emotion with characters you take to your heart. I cannot wait to get Liz’s new books into the hands of readers everywhere.’
Liz said: ‘I am thrilled to bits to be joining Bookouture and looking forward to reaching new readers through their dynamic approach to the e-book market. My first novel with them, due out in May 2022, is a very personal story told to me by an uncle who worked as an intelligence officer in Germany just after WW2, tracking down escaping Nazis and helping to manage the tide of desperate refugees – a topic with heart-breaking contemporary resonance.’
Liz Trenow is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction, including Under a Wartime Sky and The Silk Weaver. Her novels are published worldwide and have been translated into many languages.
A former journalist, Liz spent fifteen years working for regional and national newspapers, and BBC radio and television news, before turning her hand to fiction. She lives in East Anglia with her artist husband and they have two grown-up daughters and three beautiful grandchildren.
