Yes, last year I wrote The Ambassador's Daughter, which is in fact the prequel to The Kommandant's Girl and discusses how the Kommandant and his wife Margot met. Should be easy to find online or in stores. My next book The Winter Guest is out in August and should also appeal to fans of The Kommandant's Girl. I hope you like them! Best, Pam(less)
