I have a standalone coming out from Ballantine in January 2020 called The Words I Never Wrote. It's set both in the present day and Europe between 1936 to 1945. It involves some of my favourite themes - love, espionage and war - and tells the story of two sisters who are separated by ideology, and forced to make big moral choices.The climax centres round the fall of Berlin, which was a terrible and turbulent time. But....I am still writing the sixth Clara Vine novel, set in Vienna, Hamburg and Berlin. That's so enjoyable, and I will definitely update you on pub date when I have it. (less)

There is another Clara Vine on the way, set in 1941 with flashbacks to 1937, but I have to finish a standalone novel first. I'm so pleased you like the series - it's such a pleasure to hear from people who've read them x(less)

Quotes by Jane Thynne  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“It was about a year ago when I first made contact with members of the British Foreign Office. I volunteered my services and privileged information to a foreign power. Which is effectively treason, or would be, except that I regard it as pure patriotism. You see, Clara, I no longer recognize the Germany I love. I see these brutes strong-arming a small nation like Austria, and now threatening Czechoslovakia, because they can and because no one will stop them. I see them running riot with the rule of law - Germany, whose legal system is the greatest in the world, which has always stood for justice and right. And when I see this gang of thugs flooding the streets of my beloved country with tides of blood, I feel hatred swelling inside me. Damn Himmler and Heydrich and all the other sadists. I hate this false Germany, as much as I love the real Germany. And I intend to do something about it.”
Jane Thynne, The Scent of Secrets

“Perhaps, he thought, there was some strange satisfaction to be derived from confining savage animals here, given that the savagery outside this place was the kind that couldn't be confined.”
Jane Thynne, Black Roses

“She had never felt so alone or frightened in her life. She had come to Berlin to feel closer to her mother, and had found instead danger and death.”
Jane Thynne, Black Roses
