On the eve of World War II a naïve young woman makes a fateful decision: she will abandon her British citizenship and go to live in Nazi Austria. When her marriage breaks down and she finds herself alone in an enemy land, her passionate, restless nature drives her in a struggle for survival against the odds. Who can she trust? And ultimately, who can she love?

Interrogating Ellie is based on a true story.

Readers’ reactions:

"This is one of the best-written books I have reviewed… Everything about Ellie works and we root for her against the odds." Historical Novel Society

“A page-turner. I read it in one day.”

“Absorbing, compelling, riveting. It was 3am and I couldn’t put it down.”

“This was an excellent story, with unexpected twists and turns, well developed and interesting characters. The detail was fascinating – the lives, the clothes, the food were all well researched. What I found most fascinating was that the story was told from the point of view of ordinary people in Austria. I have always been intrigued to know how ordinary citizens came to terms with the way of life imposed on them, the compromises and moral decisions that people were forced to make. It was very true to life.”

“This book was worth writing.”

“I found it really absorbing and fascinating all the way through. It’s an extraordinary story and held me strongly throughout. Very moving. She was a real fighter and survivor. I’d love to hear more about her.”

“I remember the last time I saw Ellie. Interrogating Ellie brought her to life again for me.”
