Despite her millions of unanswered questions and having to make sense of new mysteries every day, Joanie comes to find a loyal and trustworthy companion in Adler, a lieutenant in the Wehrmacht and a member of the German Resistance during World War II who must also find a way to handle living in modern times on top of being invisible to most of the population.The two of them will have to fight several battles on many fronts in both the physical world and unseen realms as they both try to comprehend Adler's new existence and piece Joanie's broken life back together.

Exceptional!

This is, by far, one of the most extraordinary, interesting, and exceptionally well-written life stories to which I have ever had the pleasure of listening. The story is spellbinding, and it is full of intrigue, excitement, and history. It delves into the horrible atrocities of nazism during WWII and the detestable evils of domestic violence in the present world - with valuable lessons learned portrayed from both eras. In addition, the narrator’s stellar performance is spot on superb! I was held spellbound with her intonation of the characters’ voices, both male and female, in particular the voice of the German soldier, Adler. The narrator’s highly professional, articulate presentation throughout the audiobook serves to underscore the brilliance of the author’s terrific storyline. I strongly recommend this audiobook for teens as well as for grownups! Well-deserved kudos to the author, Jamila Mikhail and the narrator, Melody Craven!
