Praise for

Saffire

“Captivating! Emotional and impeccably researched.
Saffire
is a sweeping, early twentieth century novel with a colorful supporting cast and a main character who is both steadfast and strong. Brouwer weaves historical fact and storytelling with an expert pen—leaving the reader satisfied and, at times, in awe of the mystery and intrigue reminiscent of the classic
Casablanca.
I didn't put it down until I turned the final page.”

“In
Thief of Glory
Sigmund Brouwer plunges readers into the mysterious embrace of the Dutch East Indies during the convulsions of the Second World War. Few authors have such an ability to immerse an audience in the sights, sounds, smells…and horrors! Brouwer makes you live it…sharing each moment of an exotic and terrifying time and place in a gripping, personal way.”

“Sigmund Brouwer's
Thief of Glory
is a powerful story, richly told. Young Jeremiah Prins is a complex and fascinating hero, blessed with great gifts and challenged by choices to use them for good or evil. The details of life in a Japanese civilian prison camp are revealed in unflinching but compassionate realism, and the characters depict the human capacity for both great selfishness and great heroism. This is truly one of the best books I've read this year.”

“I've been a fan of Sigmund Brower's books for ages, but
Thief of Glory
cocooned me in rich words, vivid descriptions, and true-to-life characters, making this book hard to put down. A fan of World War II, I've read countless tales, but World War II in the Dutch Indies was new to me, fresh and heart-wrenching at the same time. A true glimpse of light amongst darkness, made even more special due to the inspiration of his own parents' true story.
Thief of Glory
is going on my keeper shelf!”
