We are thrilled to announce that Andie Newton has signed a two book deal with One More Chapter (HarperCollins). World English Rights were acquired by publishing director Charlotte Ledger from agent Kate Nash.
Andie is a USA Today bestselling author of historical fiction. Her novels explore women’s wartime experience.
The first book in the deal, A CHILD FOR THE REICH follows Anna Dankova whose daughter is stolen by the Nazis as part of Himmler’s Lebensborn program. Anna goes undercover in the Nazi nursery, desperate and determined to bring her daughter home. This thrilling and moving story explores a horrific yet often overlooked program where thousands of foreign children were kidnapped and relocated to German homes.
Andie said: “I’m beyond thrilled to be working with Charlotte Ledger and the dynamic teams at HarperCollins and One More Chapter to bring my readers more of the stories they love. Charlotte’s enthusiasm and passion for A CHILD FOR THE REICH has been an author’s dream and nothing short of amazing. This is a brilliant new chapter in my writing career, and I’m honoured to be joining a list of authors whose work I adore.”
“As for my next book with HarperCollins, I’m reluctant to give too much information away until it has a confirmed title. What I can say is that it’s set in France in the months leading up to D-Day.”
Kate said: “A CHILD FOR THE REICH is a very emotional story illuminating a little-known aspect of the Nazi eugenics programme. Andie should be extremely proud of bringing to life this important story which I feel will stick in the minds of readers for a long time afterwards.”
A CHILD FOR THE REICH will be published in eBook and audio next month, and in paperback in the UK on 2nd March 2023, in Canada on 7th March 2023, and in the USA on 4th July 2023. Italian and Spanish language rights have been sold to Newton Compton.
