“Get Your Farm in the Fight” - The Realities of WWII Come to a Wisconsin Farm

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.

Only last year, Fannie O’Brien was considered a beauty with a brain, and her future shone bright, despite the war pounding Europe. With her father’s sudden death and her brothers overseas, Fannie must now do the work of three men on their 200-acre farm—until eight German prisoners arrive and, just as Fannie feared, trouble comes too. Someone seems intent on causing “accidents,” and Fannie is certain the culprit is one of the two handsome older Germans—or possibly both. Can she manage the farm, keep the prisoners in line, and hold her family together through these turbulent times?

~ Candice Sue Patterson, author of Saving Mrs. Roosevelt 
Author Naomi Musch has crafted a poignant and heartwarming story about the American WWII home front. Eloquent description immersed me in the sights, sounds, and smells of harvest time on a farm. I was drawn into the uncertainty, fear, and courage of people on both sides of the conflict as they tried to make sense of a world gone made. The characters have stayed with me long after turning the last page.
- Linda Shenton Matchett, Amazon bestselling author of Spies & Sweethearts: A WWII Romance
With exceptional skill, Musch weaves a tale about courage, resilience, and love on the home front during the Second World War. It's an intelligent and thoughtful read for history lovers.
- Patti Stockdale, author of the WWII romance, Three Little Things

Not all heroines wear capes. During the Second World War, many wore bib overalls as they plowed, planted, and harvested fields. Naomi Musch's courageous heroine faces grief, worry, prejudice, and longing in this tender story of a Wisconsin farm family determined to do their part for the war effort. Sometimes bowed but never broken, their quiet courage is a testament to all those who sacrificed so much during those troublesome years. Season of My Enemy belongs on the bookshelf of every fan of faith-based WWII fiction.
- Johnnie Alexander, best-selling and award-winning author of Where Treasure Hides and The Cryptographer's Dilemma.

Season of my Enemy explores a fascinating slice of history in America's heartland during WWII. Author Naomi Musch paints in beautifully vivid detail one woman's struggle to work her farm alongside the nation's enemy—a German prisoner of war—during harvest while her brothers fight overseas. Only with time in laboring together and sharing a mutual faith can they finally strip away their differences and reveal one human heart, in its desire to love and to long for peace and a future.
 - Kate Breslin, bestselling author, As Dawn Breaks

Avid readers will snap up this World War II homefront tale, which contains timely messages of overcoming prejudice. Musch (Song for the Hunter) weaves moral lessons with a gentle touch and strong background research. The unlikely friendships are reminiscent of classic stories like Bette Greene’s Summer of My German Soldier and Jack Cavanaugh’s Dear Enemy.
