Publisher's Description

Readers know of the bravery, boldness, and spirit shown by the

thousands of soldiers who fought valiantly during World War II. Lesser

known, perhaps, but equally dramatic were the roles that women played in

the conflict, both as support from home and as part of the fight near the

front lines.

For Such a Time, the first novel in Elyse Larson's WOMEN OF

VALOR series explores the lives of two cousins--one French, the other

American--who find the courage to face danger and betrayal in

occupied France during at the height of the war.

Giselle Munier and Jean Thornton are more like sisters than cousins,

having spent many summers together through their parents' travels. But

with the outbreak of World War II, both women's lives take a dramatic


Jean joins the American Red Cross, assigned to a sprawling military

hospital in Wales. Giselle, active in the French Resistance, has been

betrayed and arrested by the Nazis. Hearing of her cousin's plight, Jean

knows she must try to rescue her cousin, no matter how ill-advised the

mission seems. Both women will learn far more than they ever imagined

about courage, trust, and forgiveness before their harrowing experience

is over.

Author Bio

A full-time writer with a passion for historical research, Elyse Larson developed a particular interest in World War II and the faith that sustained believers during one of the most devastating wars on earth. It was this special fascination, and a friendship with a woman who served as a Red Cross worker in Wales, that led her to develop her Women of Valor series.

Fueled by travels to Abergavenny, Wales, as well as through portions of what had been occupied France, Elyse was able to experience firsthand the geography and world that was torn asunder during the conflict. Combined with rare books she found during her travels and the personal accounts shared by her friend, she now had enough information to form her story and recreate this dramatic world.

Elyse credits her writing success to her parents' upbringing, which taught her the importance of persistence. A native of Oregon, Elyse attended Williamette University and spent over ten years as a dental assistant before moving to writing full-time.

Since then, she has been successful in nearly every form she has attempted. The author of children's picture books, numerous historical novels, and even a devotional for caregivers, Elyse has also been published in many periodicals including Guideposts, Reader's Digest, and The Christian Reader. The time she isn't writing is now spent traveling for writer's conferences as a private writing instructor.

Elyse and her husband, Richard, continue to reside in Oregon. They have three grown children and eleven grandchildren.
