Increasingly wary of her father's genetic research, Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with him to Germany-in the summer of 1939-will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter, Amelie, deaf since birth, as a blight on his Aryan bloodline. Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows he's as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders from every government building in Berlin. She fears her father's files may hold answers about Hitler's plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems "unworthy of life." She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she's never known. Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young-a driven, disarming American journalist and unlikely ally-who connects her to the resistance and to controversial theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Forced into hiding, Rachel's every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knife's edge, risking their lives-and asking others to do the same-for those they barely know but come to love.

This book was a window into WWII, and a reading experience different than some of the other books like this. A great example of what love, compassion, hope, and selflessness was like during the hard times. Great Christian book, the Lord sure did some amazing miracles and still does....Very pleased with this read.

a WONDERFUL read. Drama, romance, suspense, history, and biblical theology interspersed. What more could you ask for? I love the new in-depth perspective it has given me for the lives of those helping the persecuted during World War II. And the wonderful history surrounding the Passion in Germany.
