Giles and Julie

A novel by

The gritty survival of a boy and a girl in occupied France in WWII is told in graphic detail in the thrilling romance Giles and Julie. Young Giles, a runner for the resistance, becomes a member of a squad that derails trains and creates deadly havoc against the German forces. Julie is raped and then pressed into working in a Paris brothel. From these hard beginnings, they construct their lives, first alone, then together. They become involved in the insurrection in Algeria and work with French intelligence services. Bravely, the two put themselves at risk while aiding France through the tense post-war years. Dr. Hugh Bowen, a veteran of WWII, is a psychologist, now retired. Giles and Julie is his fifth novel with each being based on his lifetime experiences. The author has an abiding interest in the resilience of good people in times of stress and the depravity that some fall into. This book is his tribute to the young people of all nations who endured so much in WWII and yet were able to go on and live full lives. Publisher's website: http: //
