Greetings from Justine
I’m Justine Saracen, author of thriller-romance-intrigue-mystery-
adventure novels that look to the great events of history. Gay
men and lesbians were present at these moments and because
they were, they are here, in my
books, telling the human story.
Love does not conquer all, but when all of Europe is
on fire, it’s better than going to hell alone.

Waiting for the Violins: Antonia Forrester, an English nurse, is nearly killed while trying
to save soldiers fleeing at Dunkirk. Embittered, she returns to occupied Brussels as a British
spy to foment resistance to the Nazis. She works with urban partisans who sabotage
deportation efforts and execute collaborators, before résistante leader Sandrine Toussaint
accepts her into the Comet Line, an operation to rescue downed Allied pilots. After capture
and then escape from a deportation train headed for Auschwitz, the women join the Maquis
fighting in the Ardenne Forests. Passion is the glowing ember that warms them amidst the
winter carnage until London radio transmits the news they’ve waited for. Huddled in the
darkness, they hear the coded message, “the long sobs of the violins” signaling that the Allied
Invasion is about to begin.
Love does not conquer all, but when all of Europe is on fire, it’s better than going to hell alone.
