"I loved this book about an older woman who leaves her abusive husband and retreats to a cottage. She finds a second chance at love." Netgalley review

"It's such a lovely, emotional story, in parts your heart will be breaking. One to read in a comfortable chair on a winter's day." Netgalley review

"This is an exciting, novella-length WWII story. The plot is spy vs spy inside the USA. The action is non-stop and the story is very realistic. I am going to read more of this author's work." Amazon reviewer

Storyteller at Heart

Jaye Burke's motto is "historical fiction writers gather facts and breathe life into those who have gone before us". Burke is a former newspaper fashion artist and copywriter who threw in the advertising towel when her ink and wash technique became a lost art. With inspiration from her late aunt, a noted Alabama historian, Burke has found her creative story-telling niche through extensive research by traveling to rural towns, meeting locals, and unearthing historical data from her native state.

Readers have described Burke's writing as "wonderfully vivid," "wonderful lyrical prose," "enchanting," "she understands the mood of the south, “and "compelling." A writer of southern historical fiction and women's fiction, she has published two historical fiction novels and one novella.

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, a former resident of New Orleans and Mandeville, Louisiana, she now resides in the Atlanta area with her husband and feisty dachshund, Cristobel.
