Katie Wood is a professional nurse for over forty years who lives with her husband in northern Nevada and is passionate about fabric art, music, writing, and her splendid, red-headed grandson. She has completed her new book “The Breaking and Deliverance of a Kommandant”: a gripping and suspenseful novel set probing the myriad existential conflicts between the human face of the invader and the resistant spirit of the subjugated in occupied France during the Second World War.

Katie writes, “When the French home of Sophie von Beaulieu is commandeered by the Nazis in 1942, the arrogant kommandant is in control, but is he? Against the backdrop of the grim World War II, Sophie’s own pivotal, internal war begins. It is one that she battles with intellect and courage. Her perceptiveness allows her to see into the Kommandant’s heart and gain insight into his conflict with the Nazi ideology. Can she achieve her goal of securing his honesty or will her relentless pursuit cause more peril in her already dangerous situation? Because of one woman’s tenacity, compassion and fortitude in the face of combat fatigue, lives are altered, and the effects are felt beyond a lifetime.

How remarkable that the scars of war can be healed by forgiveness!”
