Publisher's Summary

A pledge of love and hope paves the way for a tale of courage and resilience....  

After Wilhelm Quedlin takes Hilde Dremmer as his bride, his heart is content and filled with love, but his life becomes much more complicated. As he's pulled deeper and deeper into his intelligence work, Q feels as if what he is doing, how he is contributing to the espionage of war, isn't enough.  

More than once, he's ready to give up, but Hilde urges him to continue, to stay true to himself. She quietly bears all the hardship war has brought to ordinary people like them until one day the unimaginable happens, and she, too, wants out.  

But fate wanted them to stay and fight....  

Suddenly, inspiration strikes: Q devises a plan to cause a devastating blow to Hitler's regime - assassinate a key player in his organization. One life in exchange for millions of lives saved. In Q's mind, it seems simple, but war is always complicated. 

Q's plan may have a rippling effect that could potentially end the war and affect change around the world. But can he go through with it? Does Q have the courage to pull it off? Or will the looming fear that it will not only ruin him but also harm his family cause him to abandon the plan altogether?

A Rare and Important Perspective

This book is part of a fictional series based on the true experiences of the authors grandparents, who resisted evil in WWII Germany at great personal cost. I haven’t found many other books that share this very important point of view. The story is as engaging as a spy thriller, but also very substantive and historically accurate.

I loved the narrator and was so glad Audible finally started bringing out this author’s work! Though I previously read the entire series, I enjoyed listening to the Audible versions while walking as much, if not more. Give this series a try! The author’s War Girls series also is excellent. I wish Audible would bring that series out with the same narrator.
