Innocent Eyes is an engaging work of historical fiction about Irene, a young girl living in the French Province of Alsace during World War II. In 1939 life in Irene’s peaceful village of Kaschel comes under attack, and Irene’s family is forced to evacuate their home. Fearing a Nazi invasion, they are given two hours to leave. In Innocent Eyes, master storyteller Doyle Suit paints a vivid picture of life under Nazi rule seen through the eyes of a small child. Rich in period details, Innocent Eyes is a story of the power of love to overcome evil and the unbreakable bonds of family to survive in a turbulent world. Donna Volkenannt, Erma Bombeck Global Humor Award Winner

How does a five-year-old little French girl try to make sense of the Nazi invasion of her small hometown? Can she adapt to a new language and strange rules? Hushed conversations between her parents give her a secret hope that perhaps their oppression will not last forever. Author Doyle Suit lets the child speak for herself with earnestness and humor, telling her own story through Innocent Eyes. Marcia Gaye, author and poet, Deanna Wagner and OCW Awards Winner
