Blog tour: Sisters at War

Welcome to the blog tour for Sisters at War by Jina Bacarr!

More about the book…

Paris, 1940. After a devastating attack, Justine and Eve Beaufort find themselves on opposite sides of the war, both in their beloved Paris. But can they ever find their way back to each other?

It was the day that changed everything. When the Nazis came and broke into our home. Destroyed everything that was safe for us. They took our home and our security. I thought it couldn’t get worse. But then they also took my sister.

After that day nothing was the same again. I thought I’d never see her again. I thought she was lost to me forever. I joined the Resistance, vowing to fight against the evil German army with every last spark of fire in my body.

I know what I have to do. And nothing can stop me. Until I catch a glimpse of a woman who looks just like my sister. Alive. But this is not the sweet darling girl I once knew. This is a platinum blonde happily conversing with a terrifying Gestapo officer. No longer my sister. But a traitor.

And I know what I must do…

Could you choose your country – and what is right – over the person you once loved more than anyone in the world?

My impressions…

Wow, this is a book I will need recovering from. In a good way! I am new to this author, but she is clearly a skilled researcher and has done a wonderful job of recreating a war-torn Paris that springs up around you as you read, so that you are completely immersed in the events you’re witnessing. I am endlessly fascinated by novels set during World War II, but we must not forget that war is not something to be taken lightly. So, while this is fiction, it is historical fiction. Violence pervades the pages, and it can be a tough read so please go in with your eyes open. Having said this, the dual narrative is excellent, and the characters of Eve and Justine have been meticulously developed. A heart-breaking story that gave me a lot to think about.

Three words to describe it. Emotional. Powerful. Gripping.

Do I like the cover? Yes, it was love at first sight!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do!


  1. Thank you, Silvia, for your charming review of SISTERS AT WAR. I'm so glad you enjoyed it and I was able to take you to that time, that place, and let history unfold before your eyes with Eve and Justine. The sequel, SISTERS OF THE RESISTANCE, coming up!
