Product Details


“Exquisitely balanced between cloak-and-dagger secrecy, the grinding realities of waiting out your quarry, and the crushing fear of discovery, To Die Beautiful displays the courage and power of a woman committed to doing what is right in a world gone terribly wrong.”

“This isn’t just a brilliant novel, it’s a measuring stick you’ll use determine what lengths you would go to protect those you love. How much would you risk and how much could you possibly endure? The legendary Hannie Schaft set the bar for all of us. We may not make it to her heights, but this inspiring book will expand our awareness of what’s possible, and haunt you in the best possible way.”
—Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of The Many Daughters of Afong Moy

“I wish I’d written To Die Beautiful. Buzzy Jackson is a very talented writer and To Die Beautiful is headed for the best-seller list. So, be the first on your block . . .”
Alan Furst

“Buzzy Jackson recreates Hannie Schaft’s incendiary life out of a handful of ash and sparks. An unforgettable alloy of death and hope, To Die Beautiful is a heartrending and breathstopping novel of resistance – the more so for being the essence of truth.”            
—Elizabeth Wein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity

“Yes, To Die Beautiful is inspiring, empowering, and timely, compellingly detailed and impressively researched, but better still, it’s an immersive story of a terrifying warren of history through which our guide is the sort of hero we all need now: relatable and resolute and absolutely right. I am grateful to Buzzy Jackson for the introduction to the indomitable Hannie Schaft, a warrior I know I’ll be thinking about for a long time to come.”
Laurie Frankel, New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is

“In this thrilling fictional debut, Buzzy Jackson merges her fascinating historical research about the women of the Dutch resistance with evocative and pacy storytelling. To Die Beautiful is a riveting, moving and important novel about the courage it takes to stand up for what is right. Hannie Schaft is an inspiration.”
—Judy Batalion, New York Times bestselling author of The Light of Days

To Die Beautiful brings Hannie alive and I finished it in almost one gulp! What an amazing, inspiring, true-life hero she was. Her youth, her red-headed beauty, her innocence and her ferocity. This is a story about a young girl fighting with all her life against fascism. As the first-hand memories of WWII are soon fading, we need story-tellers like Buzzy Jackson to carry them on. There is an urgency at this time to remember and acknowledge how women have stepped up and will step up to the fight. And we need just these kinds of books to give voice to the women who for so long were muted in the official accounts. An engrossing read.”
—Gwen Strauss, The Nine: The True Story of a Band of Women Who Survived the Worst of Nazi Germany
