Rundpinne Book Review: "Cold Lonely Courage by Soren Paul Petrek is an exceptional work of fiction." Best Fiction Award from The Writers Network's 15th Annual Screenplay and Fiction Competition.

Goodreads Review: "Mon Dieu! This was the best book! I could not put it down. Thankfully the cold rain and warm fire made it possible for me to read through it in a day. The strength of the story lies in the main characters; Teach and Madeleine against the backdrop of WWII. Throughout the book, the author introduces a number of characters. At one point I longed for more character development of these bit players but Soren expertly weaves the players into the story bringing it to a most satisfying finish.

Soren Paul Petrek is a practicing trial attorney with a passion for studying World War II. He lived in France and England, listening to people's stories of sacrifice and struggle during the darkest periods of the war.
