“Emotionally wrought and deeply written, this novel shows Mary D. Brooks astounding talent. The love between Eva and Zoe is easily felt, as is their angst. Set against the 1950’s, the drama of being a same-sex​ couple is intense and much different than the LGBT landscape of today

I officially adore this series. Another stellar novel that blows your mind.”

Heather G Review


I’m deeply honoured and thrilled to have two of my books – the novel and the companion book be featured in the Jewish Museum of Greece.

In 2016 The Jewish Museum of Greece added In “The Blood of the Greeks” and the companion book “In the Blood of the Greeks The Illustrated Companion” to their collection on Greek Holocaust during World War II.

If you are in the area, why not pop over to Nikis 39, Athina 105 57, Greece and see their collection of priceless documents, images and video about the Greek Jewish Resistance and the way the Greek Jews fought back against the Germans and how their compatriots protected them.

Pick up a copy of In the Blood of the Greeks and the Companion Book – historical fiction and the companion book features actual wartime photography, illustrations, real life accounts of Greek resistance and heroism.
