About the Author

Marion Kummerow is a USA Today Bestselling author of historical fiction.

She was born and raised in Germany, before she set out to "discover the world" and lived in various countries. After many years abroad she returned to Germany and settled down in Munich where she's now living with her husband and two children.

After dipping her toes with non-fiction books, she finally tackled the project dear to her heart. UNRELENTING is the story about her grandparents, who belonged to the German resistance and fought against the Nazi regime.
It's a book about resilience, love and the courage to stand up and do the right thing.

Since then she has started writing the War Girl Series. Intended as a trilogy, she grew so fond of the characters that she's now plotting book 12 in the series.
