Judith Pella is the bestselling author/coauthor of seven major fiction series, including the LONE STAR LEGACY and THE RUSSIANS, as well as the novels Blind Faith and Beloved Stranger. Known for her vivid and powerful stories that combine with her historical and geographical research, Judith's current series is DAUGHTERS OF FORTUNE, set during World War II. She and her family make their home in Oregon.From Booklist:
Fans of Pella's The Russians series will enjoy Written on the Wind, the first in yet another World War II series, this one entitled Daughters of Fortune. Pella uses contemporary slang, such as "cheesy" and "designer diapers," in her narrative, and her characters are broad strokes, indeed, but her story does come to life in wartime Yugoslavia, Egypt, and especially the Soviet Union. These are the haunts of yet another intrepid woman reporter striving to prove herself in a man's world--specifically, Cameron Hayes, forced to work for a rival paper when her father, a famous publisher and chauvinist, insults her abilities. Reluctantly, Cameron teams with Johnny Shanahan, her father's ace correspondent though not on the approved suitor's list, and together they nail their stories even as the Nazis advance. Aspiring actress Blair and sincere Christian Jackie, Cameron's sisters, also have their plotlines, though presumably their full stories will come in succeeding volumes. John Mort
