On Wednesday, January 13th at 6:00pm PST Warwick's will host Anita Abriel as she discusses her new book, Lana's War, in conversation. Anita Abriel was born in Sydney, Australia. She received a BA in English literature with a minor in creative writing from Bard College. She is international bestselling author of The Light After the War. She lives in California with her family.

Paris 1943: Lana Antanova is on her way to see her husband with the thrilling news that she is pregnant. But when she arrives at the convent where he teaches music, she's horrified to see Gestapo officers execute him for hiding a Jewish girl in the piano.

A few months later, grieving both her husband and her lost pregnancy, Lana is shocked when she's approached to join the resistance on the French Riviera. As the daughter of a Russian countess, Lana has the perfect background to infiltrate the émigré community of Russian aristocrats who socialize with German officers, including the man who killed her husband.

Lana's cover story makes her the mistress of Guy Pascal, a wealthy Swiss industrialist and fellow resistance member, in whose villa in Cap Ferrat she lives. Together, they gather information on upcoming raids and help members of the Jewish community escape. Consumed by her work, she doesn't expect to become attached to a young Jewish girl or wonder about the secrets held by the man whose house she shares. And as the Nazis' deadly efforts intensify, her intention to protect those around her may put them all at risk instead.
