Publisher's Summary

Germany 1938. While young and old are captivated by the country's rapid ascent under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, naive Maggie O'Dea, an American studying abroad, finds her own fortunes turning after falling in love with a handsome soldier and landing a job with the Propaganda Ministry. Embodying the infectious spirit of nationalism sweeping the country, her powerful dispatches launch her broadcasting career as a champion of the Fatherland.
But as Germany invades one peaceful neighbor after another and the wheels of World War II are set in motion, Maggie starts opening her eyes to the grim reality of Hitler's intentions. Torn between her successful career rooted in the allegiance to her adopted land and a growing dread over her role in a tyrant's ruthless reign, Maggie - supported by a new love - must fight her own war of conscience. Will she survive a conflict threatening the world...and her own life?

Best in the series for me.

Enjoyable, like the main characters too, a few implausible coincidences too many but good listen and finished really fast, so I didn't find it too long and the ending left openings for another addition.

- Howie "History, historical fiction and mysteries are my faves, but a fan of all genres."

The story dragged

It was too long; a great deal of the minutia could have been edited out or at least shortened. The ending was incomplete; you're left wondering what happened to two major characters in the novel. It was a good idea, and did a decent job of showing the war-time shortages and the destruction of Berlin. The Maggie character was interesting and lively. But the story needed serious editing and tightening, so only three stars from me. I would read more by this writer, but I'll look at the length very seriously before I purchase another book by him.
