CONCORD, Calif., Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Constance Krail-Self announced today her latest novel The Road To Hell is now available for sale on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/dp/150046029X
In this spellbinding, highly anticipated sequel to the book Life in Hitler's Crosshairs this fast paced novel will capture you immediately and keep hold until the last twist.
The year is now 1942 and Marta Koblinski, a member of the Polish Underground, continues her assignment within the walls of the greatest secret in the Nazi regime: Auschwitz. In addition to the Nazis, Marta faces dangers closer to home — her traitorous cousin and an unknown German agent, conspiring with each other towards her elimination.
From the depths of Auschwitz to the opulence of Nazi Berlin, Marta's journey carries her through war-torn Poland into terror-ruled Germany as she and her fellow compatriots fight for Poland's release from Adolf Hitler's clutches and Josef Stalin's schemes.
A quote attributed to Saint Bernard of France, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions" was the inspiration for this novel's title. The phrase has never been more shockingly displayed than in post-war Poland's eventual betrayal and the sacrifices the country is forced to accept. "Ultimately," says the author, "the novel is more than one woman's fight for existence. It's a story of perseverance, faith, and an unflagging love of country in desperate and horrific times."
With a Polish mother and a German father, Krail-Self used her rich family history and detailed research in both novels. "While living in Germany for several years," added the author, "I heard many tales from WWII survivors and have included them in The Road To Hell."
Brilliantly plotted and vigorously paced, The Road To Hell is a must-read for anyone interested in this tragedy on the world stage. The fascinating story will capture you immediately and keep hold until the last twist.
Ms. Krail-Self was a speaker at the Polish Museum of America in Chicago and on various radio stations. She has been featured in The Catholic Lighthouse, the Contra Costa Times, the Virginia WWII Magazine, the Midwest Book Review, and the Indiana Historical Society Library. She currently lives in northern California.
