About the Author:

Suzanne Woods Fisher writes books and publishes articles from her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. She shares a busy home with her husband, four kids, and a steady stream of puppies she raises for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Review:

A captivating tale, COPPER STAR is a heartwarming love story blended wonderfully with history. Set in WW2, where times weren't pleasant for either side of the war, Ms Fisher's talent for the written word puts you inside the character, making you feel and see what Louisa did. You will laugh and cry, smile and sigh, as this compelling novel takes you on a journey of a woman's survival during one of the worst times in history. A definite must read for anyone, young or old. COPPER STAR is not to be missed! -- Romance Junkies-5 Ribbons

Author Suzanne Woods Fisher has obviously done her research and does a great job of weaving history and fiction. A well-written and well-constructed historical novel, Copper Star delivers on a variety of levels. Although billed as an historical romance, Copper Star relies more on history and story, shunning the traditional fluff of the romance genre. Four stars! -- Christian Fiction On-Line (4 stars)

Fisher's book is a gem in more ways than one. For once the romance angle is beautifully created and developed. Unlike so many other romance novels with their rushed relationships and devil-may-care attitudes toward love and long-term commitment, this one stands out in the way the relationship is gradually developed and finally comes to fruition. Add to this the fact that her Christian belief is an integral part of the book, yet is in no way preachy or over the top, anyone - even those of different faiths entirely - will find her tasteful discussions of God within the framework of the novel interesting and acceptable. Of course, the action in the story is moving quickly, and the character of Louisa is a lovable, somewhat feisty young woman who does not mind the taste of shoe leather in her mouth. A wonderful book that is highly recommended for all readers. -- Round Table Reviews (5 stars)

I read this and envisioned a WWII movie playing out before me, the characters are so real and that you are actually there. It brings together a man struggling with his faith and a woman fighting to survive and what they can both bring to each other. Nazis were not only in Germany but also in our own land at this time. This book shows us that even small towns can harbor enemy agents, saboteurs and traitors. This is a must read for everyone of regardless of faith. -- Karen Find Out About New Books (5 stars)

I wasn't real sure what to expect when I opened the covers of COPPER STAR. It has been my experience that a lot of books published by these smaller houses are not as good as those published by the larger houses. I was pleasantly surprised with COPPER STAR. It is apparent that Fisher has studied the craft of writing extensively and she knows what she's doing. The book is written in a literary style, and is not a sweet romance in writing-style. However, that doesn't detract from the story-line at all. The characters are well developed, the romance is very real and present, and the faith message is expertly woven in. -- Armchair Reviews (4.5 stars)

Louisa's outspoken but humble and pious personality provides the perfect point of view for anecdotes of small-town life during the war years. Copper Star's plot builds in conflict and excitement, and its tender romance warms the heart. -- Historical Novels Review (5 stars)
