Publisher's Summary

A sweeping tale of love and loss in wartime Germany, inspired by a true story.

Germany, 1943. The choices she makes will change her life forever.

Growing up in Hitler's Germany, Charlotte von Klein has big dreams for the future. Her mind is full of plans for a sumptuous wedding to her childhood sweetheart, Heinrich, while working for the Luftwaffe, proudly giving her all for the Fatherland. But in 1943, the tide of the war is turning against Germany, and Lotte's life of privilege and comfort begins to collapse around her. As Hitler's Reich abandons Germany and the country falls to the Allied forces, Lotte is forced to flee from the unfolding chaos to the country with the darkly attractive Erich Drescher, her Luftwaffe superior.

Amid the danger, pain and heartbreak of a country turning on itself, Lotte must forge a new life for herself. But as the country struggles to find its future, shadows of the past come rushing back, and Lotte finds herself questioning everything she has fought for - love, duty and freedom.

Skip this book

If u are looking for a good world war 2 historical novel skip this book. It is a Harlequin romance in a German city with the war as a backdrop. Tedious, slow, breathless teenage emotions. If you like romance you will love this - if you like history you won’t be able to finish it- I got thru a few chapters before I gave up.

It was readable

Far too romantic for me Astonished at some accounts of the story that she was so untouched by events And to record the activity following the war of "kind but thoughtless" American army Why wasn't it relief that the tyranny was over? And bloody Henrich what a pillick! !!

Beautifully written

The love story a little predictable- she me may say a little “Hollywood “ however reading WW2 from the perspective of the average German citizen was quite an eye opener for me and rather interesting - in terms of language and grammar it is beautifully written and superbly narrated.
I will read another by this author.

Beautiful and poignant story

One of the best stories I have read from world war II times all the way through rebuilding a life after from civilians' view points . It truly gets your heart beat going all the way through the book.
The best part: the narrator. such a beautiful soothing and down to earth voice. The perfect voice to tell this story.
The author chose the perfect words to remind us what Kindness, Resilience, Love and Passion truly are.

The German perspective of believers of Hitler totally misled.

A very different angle from the German perspective. Still had to be alert all the time. Thank goodness I didn’t have to live through this nightmare. Nobody was safe. Very well written.
