“A Key to Treason” (published by AuthorHouse) is the fictional story of a young man’s journey through life, his resistance against the Nazis, and his struggle to do the right thing in the face of a forcible and cruel occupation.
The author created the pen name Marvern Wallace by combining her name, Marjorie Wallace, and her husband’s name, Vernon Wallace. Their daughter, Anne Peterson, is launching a new marketing campaign for “A Key to Treason,” which was inspired by Vernon Wallace’s firsthand recollections as a rank and file soldier who experienced the horrors of World War II.
Thaddius Gohr is selected to enter the fictional country of Einland’s military academy and becomes best friends with the crown prince. When the prince ascends to the throne, he promotes Thad to a position of power, which makes Thad responsible for trying to protect the country’s treasury from Nazi looters. With the key to the treasury in his hands, Thad bends the law to protect Einland’s economy, which raises the question for readers: what would they do if they were thrown into such harrowing circumstances?
“A Key to Treason” illustrates the desperation and self-sacrifice of ordinary people who are determined to make a difference and protect their country. Wallace hopes readers will see how any person is capable of performing heroic acts in order to protect their country when placed in dire circumstances.
“We are still encountering forms of tyranny in the world today that need to be resisted by everyone who values liberty,” Peterson says. “The novel presents examples of how ordinary people can rise to oppose tyranny. In this age of terrorism, that is valuable.”
