About the Author

Louise Fein holds an MA in Creative Writing from St Mary's University. Prior to studying for her master's, she ran a commodity consultancy business following a career in banking and law. She lives in Surrey with her family. Her debut novel, People Like Us, was inspired by her family history, and by the alarming parallels she sees between the early 30s and today. A theme that is present throughout her books. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

'Beautiful and absorbing – a vital story of kindness, and a reminder that humanity can flourish in the darkest of times' Caroline Hulse, author of The Adults.

'Part romance, part character study, part call to arms. The subject matter – racial hate – is sensitive but we are in safe hands with Fein who writes with great passion and urgency. The minor characters are living, breathing, three-dimensional people, each with their own motivations and dark secrets' Lizzie Page, author of When I Was Yours.

'[People Like Us] spins childhood innocence shattered, the tendency for society to carry us along in wrong directions, and the importance of standing up against tyranny in ways small and large into an absorbing, heart-wrenching story of love and letting go – and a lesson for us all' Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Train to London.

'I adored this book because not only is is beautifully written, it also tells a familiar story from a very unfamiliar perspective: that of a naïve German teenager caught up in the rise of Nazism,and her gradual realisation of the inhumanity driven by Aryan fanaticism. Louise Fein's characters help us understand how so many people were taken in by Nazi propaganda, and the terrible, heartbreaking dilemmas they faced trying to protect the people they loved. This is historical fiction at its absolute best' Liz Trenow, author of The Forgotten Seamstress.

'A powerful, unforgettable love story' Gill Paul, author of The Secret Wife.

'Moving and extremely powerful' Woman's Weekly.

'A nerve-wracking and gripping read ... Louise's cherished goal is to remind us all that we are all the same, and she encourages us all to cherish freedom of speech, debate and the acceptance of difference' Family Tree Magazine.

'Powerful and poignant, moving and provocative, this beautifully eloquent novel is set before and during the Second World War. People Like Us highlights love, humanity and kindness in the terrifying face of intolerance and hate ... This is one to climb the rooftops and shout about' LoveReading.

'A compelling tale of forbidden love set in 1930's Leipzig' Independent.

'Terrifying, yet tender. I loved it' Irish Examiner. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
