This is a great book and I wholeheartedly recommend it. It unfolds a fascinating and always gripping story and is very thought provoking in the issues it raises through its subject matter - refugees, resistance and collaboration as Hitler came to power. The author also had insights into old age which I though were interesting and perceptive. It was beautifully read by both readers - I just had to adjust to the fact that Saul Reichlin was not reading The Girl With Dragon Tattoo. It made me think of The Glass Room by Simon Mawer - also set before and during World War 2 and another 5 star listen.

If you have an interest in human courage and the lesser known facts about Nazi Germany before the outbreak of WWII, this is one for you. Anna Funder writes beautifully and her characters are explicit and complete. This book draws you into the lives of Ruth, Toller, Dora and Hans as they attempt to fight the Nazi regime and enlighten Europe to the very real threat that is about to devour the world. An excellent book that I highly recommend.
