Under Total Eclipse We Will Tremble Like Birds Without Song

This novel is a love story taking place among civilians in Europe under the Nazi Occupation in the years 1941-44.

The story explores the daily reality of WW2 Europe under Occupation. Collaboration and resistance both. The lives and moral dilemmas facing people, and the cost of their decisions to their lives and being. It also documents the routine daily lives and work of Resistance civilians and describes the historical course of the civilian war, through several countries over several years.

It was written late in the late 1980s.

This book is not part of the 20th Century Bohemians and Angels novel cycle. Although it may be included in a chronological reading of the socio-political history of the 20th Century.

The book includes a short but precise and definitive historical record of the events which took place in Auschwitz concentration camp, and at the Gestapo massacre of more than 30,000 people in Babi Yar, Kiev, Ukraine on September 29–30, 1941.

The Story:


In 1941 a woman schoolteacher in a small port city in Occupied France is caught between compliance and moral action. Numbed by the savagery of the life around her, she is fearful and unable to decide if compliance is collaboration, she cannot find a moral center on which found a life.

One day while out cycling, she comes upon the brutal execution of a collaborator which shocks her from numbness. But the shock is not the awakening of life in her.

The story examines the reality of oppression and resistance.

Whether love can bring us redemption.

Whether what we do matters to us or to the world.

Whether we can ever forget what we've done and been.
