Smuggled out of Nazi Germany after working in the resistance, Louisa finds herself waiting out the war in a dusty Arizona copper mining town. Sponsored by the Reverend Robert Gordon, Louisa quickly discovers he is hiding a tragic secret. Louisa irritates, intrigues, and charms Robert, soon becoming an indispensable part of his household. Trouble begins to brew when Friedrich Mueller, a prominent resident of Copper Springs and avid Nazi sympathizer, ferrets out Louisa's background.
Soon Louisa is once again running for her life. Can she outfox a fox like Mueller? Or will she be sent back to Germany as a hostage exchange, facing certain death?

I was lost in the story, i think helped by narrator who used her tone of voice to depict emotion, rather than just reading.
This first book in the Copper Star series definitely leaves readers wanting more. I loved it!
Narrator was excellent and story was excellent!
Accent, voice inflection, made it much more real.
When can we listen to Copper Fire (#2 in the series) on audiobook???!!
Linda, avid listener
It was interesting to have the main character be someone who had worked with Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the German Resistance. All of the characters were very interesting people. A heartbroken pastor and deaf little boy make it very hard for Louisa to return to Berlin.
I learned a lot. I really enjoyed the book and can't wait for Audible to get Book 2, Copper Fire ready for us to listen to.
There was a lot of mystery & suspense, with a surprise at the end.
I thought the narrator did a good job of the accents.
Read this book!
I may give another book a chance. I don't like to judge an author by only one book.
The narrator has a pleasant voice, and a lovely accent. It was the story that was lacking.
I would not cut a character, just found the book very boring.
I gave this book a fighting chance, listening over two hours before giving up. There was just absolutely nothing I found interesting. The paragraph that described the book, and caused me to purchase it, made it out to be an exciting story. I don't know when the excitement or intrigue begins, but it's way too late for me.
Interesting, captivating, emotional
Yes. Wanting to find out the connection to the Nazis
