About the book
"This novel set during the outbreak of World War II chronicles the intersecting lives of people changed forever by the German invasion of Poland. In this ambitious novel, Baker's command of the historical period is impressive ... and the author offers many rich details."
“Balancing action scenes with instances of reflection and historical overviews, the book’s three portions are tense. Even the book’s women ... are constructed in formidable terms. There are tender, romantic moments and beautiful glimpses of Europe’s countryside, too. In the probing historical novel Shades of Betrayal, men’s virtues are tested by the atrocities of WWII.”
