Our Time Will Come
by Jean Gallant Marcoux


GENRE: Historical Romance



After a year in Paris studying painting at l'´Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Hélene Simard returns home to Quebec City in 1939, with a secret. She has a German fiancé. She can conceal his identity, but not the baby she carries. Hans Werner, her lover, was drafted in the German army, and his dreams of ever reuniting with Hélene are shattered with WWII escalating. In 1942, a bold opportunity arises for him to cross the Atlantic. Hounded by the Canadian police and Nazi assassins, the lovers' hope for a new life together becomes intertwined with a plot to kill Winston Churchill.

"Our Time Will Come is an historical fiction novel that revolves around a romance that began in Paris in 1938. The war impeded the couple’s plans as Hélène returned home to Canada while Hans fulfilled his obligations as a German soldier. Despite the complications of the war, their love motivated them to find a way to be together. The unique perspective that the author shed on this world event kept me intrigued. The exceptional character development and the numerous twists that the narrative took made reading the book pass quickly. Readers of historical fiction would enjoy this author’s innovative angle on World War II. Romance is also a central theme of the book and would satisfy readers of that genre." ~ Official OnlineBookClub.org Review



“How was your day?” Milaine asked. “Your grin tells me it was good.”

“I met the most stunning man and he invited me to a picnic,” Hélène said, bouncing from foot to foot, and then deciding to place her painting material on the floor.

“I want to go, but I’m not sure I should. He’s gorgeous, and he has the cutest accent, but I don’t know…”

“Hold on, hold on,” Milaine said. “Who is he? Where is he from? What kind of cute accent?”

“His name is Hans Werner,” Hélène recounted, pacing. “He’s from Berlin—”

“Hélène, never trust a German!” Milaine stopped for a moment for emphasis. “None of us Belgians do, after what they did to us during the Great War.”

“You don’t understand. You should see him; he’s so handsome.”
“Such a good-looking man is probably married,” Milaine said, “or more likely in a liaison.” “He doesn’t wear a ring.”

“Hélène, you’re so naïve. What if he is one of these Nazi maniacs we see in magazines and newsreels in the movie theatres?”

“He’s so nice,” Hélène said, pouring herself a glass of Chablis in one of the two cheap wine glasses that came with the apartment. “I’ll ask him all these questions next Sunday.”



Three Reasons You Should Read My Book:

Our Time Will Come” is a love story between Hélène, an inexperienced, nun-educated, twenty-year-old French-Canadian girl, and Hans, a twenty-something, more matured German young man. They meet in Paris in the fall of 1938, where they are both art students. Despite differences in culture, and ethnicity, their love and passion progress, and after a few months, they become lovers, and plan to be married. That part of the story will please devotees of Young Adult and Romance genres.

Our Time Will Come”, like all romance novels, has a black moment in the spring of 1939, when Hans receives a letter from Berlin telling him he is drafted in the German army. After much hesitation, and despite Hélène’s plea to forget about the letter, and come with her to be married in Québec, Hans decides that his duty is to serve when his country calls. He promises to come to Québec as soon as the “certainly short” war ends. Hélène returns to Québec, realises she is pregnant, and faces her life as a single parent, with the strong possibility she will not see Hans ever again.

Hans soon realizes his mistake. The war will last for a long time, and his country, he was willing to serve, is lead by monstrous psychopaths. He plots to attempt what seems impossible, to reunite with his love in Canada, while he is in the German army in Europe, in the middle of WWII. This is where “Our Time Will Come” becomes a thriller. The suspense becomes even more intense after they reunite and are hunted by the Canadian police and Nazi assassins.

Our Time Will Come” is a historical novel where the historical facts timeline is respected, and where I tried to capture in my characters the mindset of people living during the 1938-1943 period. Aficionados of the Second World War novels will appreciate scenes aboard U-boats, including an attack by an RAF Liberator.

If you like,

1.)  Young Adult novels,
2.)  Historical Romance, or
3.)  Second World War fiction,

you will “love my new book and should go right out and buy it.”

  1. Jean ~ Good morning! Welcome to FAB! It is so great to have you here! Congrats on your new book and good luck on the book tour! :)

  2. this sounds really good, thanks for sharing

  3. Thanks for taking time to share your book with us and it's always a pleasure in our family to learn about a new one.

    1. It's my pleasure to share my book, and I'm ashamed it took me that long to learn how to reply. I would be very happy to answer any question you may have about the book, or about Quebec City during WWII. I was very young then, but have researched the subject "in extremist".

  4. Did you study to be a writer in school?

  5. I enjoyed the excerpt, thank you.

  6. When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

  7. I never wanted to be a writer. However, I wanted to write THAT story for the last fifty years. Then, I found out I needed to learn how to write fiction, before I could write the story.
    Thanks for the question, and I'm sorry it took me a long time to learn how to reply.
