"A thoroughly researched work of truth-telling, In Our Midst shines the light of 'liberty and justice' on our history and reveals another horror that must be acknowledged. Jensen knows how to transport the reader into the domestic side of WWII; through taste and touch, sight and sound, we are there. From joy and delight to despair and horror, every character struggles to create and sustain their unique authenticity. To survive, each character must learn to blend aspirations with realities."
--Sena Jeter Naslund, author of Ahab's Wife and Four Spirits

"Good people suffer terrible injustices when war reasserts tribal loyalties. ... A sad, and sadly still relevant, history lesson in fictional form."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Touching...Jensen admirably pulls off the balancing act between an emotionally gripping narrative and adherence to historical facts...Jensen's satisfying fictional account of a lesser-known chapter of U.S. history resonates chillingly with today's headlines."
--Publishers Weekly

"Nancy Jensen's story is realistic and exposes the shocking extent of German American internment during the Second War. The story is reported as if the author lived through the immeasurable tragedy."
--Arthur D. Jacobs, Major, USAF Retired. Author of, i>The Prison Called Hohenasperg: An American Boy Betrayed by His Government during World War II and founder of FOITIMES.COM
