Publisher's Summary

While on a brief leave home from the deadly skies of World War II, a decorated German flying ace must decide between conscience and country when his courageous fiancé reveals her potentially deadly secret she's been keeping right under the nose of the SS. 

She wondered if he was the man she was searching for. How many men after all could have that name, and be both a retired musician and a former Luftwaffe ace? She had so many unanswered questions. How would he explain the violence, the many deaths by his own hand? How had he survived when so many of his comrades perished under the guns of the Allied air armadas? And most important, had this man somehow found redemption? Or was he just another grizzled old Nazi living out his last days in undeserved anonymity, still unrepentant for the horrors his people inflicted upon the world, and her people in particular? 

Rachael Azerod, a New York reporter, flies to London to interview Harmon Becker, the former German WW II hero whom Hitler himself awarded the highest honors - but she has her own reasons for meeting. Was he just a soldier? Or did he do something so astounding that not even he was willing to remember it…until now? 

Of Another Time and Place is a novel about love, redemption, and two young lovers separated by war and desperate to survive the unparalleled violence consuming their war-torn nation. It is the story of a country gone astray, mesmerized by their mad Fuehrer, and the artist-turned-warrior and his courageous bride who vow to break his spell and make a difference, even it if means dangling at end of a Nazi rope. 

A worthy addition to the pantheon of beloved war novels from A Farewell to Arms to All Quiet on the Western Front, Brad Schaeffer’s gripping story draws the listener into the very heart of the conflagration that was the Second World War. He takes the listener deep into the conflicts that raged not only in the skies over Germany, but within the hearts of combatants and non-combatants alike who found themselves trying to maintain their humanity when all decency seemed to have abandoned the happy lives they once knew.

WOW this should be made into movie

5 stars don’t begin to express my love of this book. It keep me fully engaged and on edge of my chair so many times. Never had a book from Nazi pilot point of view So sad it had to end. Hard to truly express how very good it was. Was it the story or author or narrator but all three made it one of best books I’ve ever read. Wish there were more books out there. That came even close to this . You will not e sorry to spend a credit I would love to see this played out in movie theater

Absolutely brilliant!

A complete and total winner.
It's the holy "audiobook trinity' with its original, fascinating story, superb writing and wonderful narration. It's an edge-of-your-seat WWll thriller told from a surprising and unique perspective. This is a spectacular reading treasure to be savored.
Bravo, Brad Schaeffer!
