About the Book

The Secret Society of Salzburg

Title: The Secret Society of Salzburg
Author: Renee Ryan
Publisher: Love Inspired Trade
Release Date: December 27, 2022
Genre: Historical Inspirational WW2 Romance

From the author of The Widows of Champagne, and inspired by true events, comes a gripping and heartwrenching story of two very different women united to bring light to the darkest days of World War II.

London, 1933

At first glance, Austrian opera singer Elsa Mayer-Braun has little in common with the young English typist she encounters on tour. Yet she and Hattie Featherstone forge an instant connection—and strike a dangerous alliance. Using their friendship as a cover, they form a secret society with a daring goal: to rescue as many Jews as possible from Nazi persecution.

Though the war’s outbreak threatens Elsa and Hattie’s network, their efforts attract the covert attention of the British government, offering more opportunities to thwart the Germans. But Elsa’s growing fame as Hitler’s favorite opera singer, coupled with her secret Jewish ancestry, make her both a weapon and a target—until her future, too, hangs in the balance.

From the glamorous stages of Covent Garden and Salzburg to the horrors of Bergen-Belsen, two ordinary women swept up by the tide of war discover an extraordinary friendship—and the courage to save countless lives.

My Review

I can’t give a FULL review yet because I am only halfway through–but check back soon because I’ll definitely be sharing one. I’m REALLY enjoying this one so far. It’s not the fast-paced page-turner where you find yourself speed reading to find out what happens, but it’s one that you truly don’t want to put down, and where you read at a pace that allows you to digest what’s fully happening on the pages. It’s not to say that the pace won’t rapidly increase at some point haha. But from what I’ve read so far the depth of the story has been very well done and the character development is superb. I can’t wait to finish!

    I think The Secret Society of Salzburg will be reserved for when I have time to read it thoughtfully.
