Publisher's Summary

European citizens feel the full force of German injustice, but not all are willing to bend the knee. From France to Poland, Resistance groups fight from the shadows to thwart Nazi rule and hinder their goal to exterminate Jews.

In Russia, Wilmot Vogel struggles to survive the ravages of a frigid winter, compounded by the German army’s lack of progress. Hit by a surprise Russian attack on the front lines, however, he finds himself facing an even greater challenge than the freezing weather and Soviet bullets.

In Łódź, Poland, an idealistic doctor is resolved to oppose the Third Reich, but is he willing to betray his country? Will a Gestapo major find the answers he’s looking for? Can a ghetto Jew avoid transportation to a Nazi extermination camp?

Can two spies rekindle their friendship, or will past betrayals become hurdles too great to surmount? Can Britain’s MI6 maintain the upper hand in a contest against the German Abwehr? Who wins when one man fights for British interests whilst the other seeks to undermine them?

In the darkest days of war, love flourishes. Two women with very different paths are led to one man who changes the course of their lives forever - but only one will win his heart.

Fantastic!

I am absolutely loving this series! If you love historical fiction or stories about WW2, I highly recommend this series. It's not so much about the war itself, but the human experience of the war. It's about a family torn apart on both sides of the war. I don't want to give away too many details though.

The worst part of this book is that book 3 isn't available yet lol. I guess I'll wait patiently if I have to lol.

The narration was good but I was honestly disappointed at the beginning. I guess the previous narrator was no longer available, so a new narrator was picked for this book. His accents weren't as good as the previous narrator, but the narration itself was great so I won't hold it against him lol.

Excellent part 2

The narrator was so good at all the different accents. I hVe enjoyed this audio book so much Fascinating chapters about surviving Russian winter in the Forrest. Some things are so hard to believe. Can’t wait for third book. I’m so engrossed in the Vogel family now and also very afraid for them and some good Germans

Epic

As I progressed through this second book in the trilogy it made me think the whole story is epic.

There are so many aspects to WWII you wonder if the topics will ever run out. In this book you find yourself in England with British intelligence, in Poland at a Jewish ghetto and in Russia and Finland with the German army. And, how often do you read about an escaped German soldier wandering around northern Russia in the dead of winter just trying to stay alive?

Looking forward to book #3.
