Historical Fiction Inspired by Family

So excited to be part of this online event sponsored by my publisher, Ronsdale Press in Vancouver, BC. Mark your calendar. We're going to talk writing, talk history, talk books. And then you get to talk back and ask questions.
Tainted Amber - third book in my series exploring the tumultuous life of my mom during the Stalin and Nazi years. It's 1937 and Katya is now 18, working as a maid in rural East Prussia.

Thanks to author Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch, author of Making Bombs for Hitler and many more books exploring untold war stories, who writes, "Goldstone deftly plunges the reader into a past when Hitler's ideas seemed new and fresh. A timely read."
