Embers in the London Sky Cover Reveal

To find her child, she’ll stop at nothing.

To report the truth will take him deep into the flames.

Embers in the London Sky cover

Today I’m pleased to reveal the cover for my upcoming novel, Embers in the London Sky, which is scheduled to release from Revell Books on February 6, 2024. This is the first of three standalone novels, following three Dutch cousins who come to the United Kingdom in World War II.

Embers in the London Sky is now available for preorder at Baker Book House (40% off and free shipping!), Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and BAM, and will be available on other sites soon. Preorders for the audiobook will be available at a later date.

Embers in the London Sky

As she flees the German army invading the Netherlands in 1940, Aleida van der Zee Martens escapes to London to wait out the occupation. Separated from her three-year-old son, Theo, in the process, the young widow desperately searches for her little boy even as she works for an agency responsible for evacuating children to the countryside.

When German bombs set London ablaze, BBC radio correspondent Hugh Collingwood reports on the Blitz, eager to boost morale while walking the fine line between truth and censorship. But the Germans are not the only ones Londoners have to fear as a series of murders flame up amid the ashes.

The deaths hit close to home for Hugh, and Aleida needs his help to locate her missing son. As they work together, they grow closer and closer, both to each other and the answers they seek. But with bombs falling and continued killings, they may be running out of time.

    This gives me chills. What a beautiful cover for an incredible writer! I can hardly wait to read it!

  4. Being rather selective about my favorite author list, Sarah ranks at the top. The first thing I do when I reach the end of her latest is to find out the release date of the next…and then the interminable wait begins.

  8. Adriana Buttafoco says:

    Sarah Sundin’s writing is a beautiful blend of history and romance, with dialogue that reminds me of Jane Austin and romance “scenes” that are tactful and appropriate. The story lines are well thought out, engaging, and a surprise twist “thrown” into the plot line.

    In addition, I’ve listened to many of her a books on audio, the readers are superb!
