The German Army of World War II rips Karl Von Steuben from his family and privileged life, forcing him to conceal his American sympathies and Jewish heritage. Stripped of every tie to his home country, he determines to escape. As he crawls to the Siegfried Line, only he knows the hiding place of gold ingots melted from the jewelry of death camp prisoners. Wounded after assuming the identity of a fallen American soldier, Karl briefly deceives even himself. Discharged and shipped to America, he discovers God's unmerited favor in a beautiful Atlanta nurse. But he must return to Germany or relinquish his family fortune and rear children under the name of another man. Will Grace forgive his duplicity and accept him as an American?

This story was very good. The narrator however detracted from it. Sometimes I could not figure out who was talking. There also was not much inflection and excitement. Since the story was about a soldier, it would be much better read by a man
I loved the premise of the story, but the writing was not always up to par. The southern accent, oddly placed inflections, and occasional mistakes of the narrator were very distracting.
