Evelyn Brand is an American foreign correspondent determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated profession and to expose the growing tyranny in Nazi Germany. To do so, she must walk a thin line. If she offends the government, she could be expelled from the country–or worse. If she does not report truthfully, she’ll betray the oppressed and fail to wake up the folks back home.
Peter Lang is an American graduate student working on his PhD in German. Disillusioned with the chaos in the world due to the Great Depression, he is impressed with the prosperity and order of German society. But when the brutality of the regime hits close, he discovers a far better way to use his contacts within the Nazi party–to feed information to the shrewd reporter he can’t get off his mind.
As the world marches relentlessly toward war, Evelyn and Peter are on a collision course with destiny.
I haven’t read a book by Sarah in several years. I liked them and then I read a couple that I didn’t care so much for and stopped reading them. But when this one came up I thought, why not, it sounded interesting. I love anything WWII related.
Oh. My. This was an excellent book. Now I am wondering why I ever stopped reading her work?
For me, I know I don’t often think about what life was like leading up to the war. How some American’s had no clue or didn’t carry to know what was going on or some thought what Hilter was going was good. This book opens up the readers mind to what might have been going on, the shock of the people as German’s turned against Jews.
Evelyn’s story is very good, as she makes her way in a world that doesn’t want to hear her voice. When her full story is revealed it is very shocking and the reader can better understand why she is so tough.
Peter is fooled at first but quickly sees that what is happening in Germany is not okay and puts himself in danger to help fight the good fight.
If you love historical romance you will want to pick this one up.
