Publisher's Summary

A romantic fairy tale was being spun in Europe before and during WWII. Only honey blondes or young women with Aryan coloring were hearing this enchanting tale told by the SS and Gestapo. Shush! It was a secret, able to be proven, but still few people heard the tale then or now.
It was told in the time of war and economic stress which made it so alluring. The story was about luxurious places in remote and sequestered hotels, ski lodges and palatial villas which had been restructured and furnished elaborately.
The food was plentiful, all you could want. You'd feel safe, away from the war, tucked behind an ornate, curving and beautiful driveway leading to a beautiful building behind guarded wrought-iron fences. All you had to agree to do was to have a baby for Hitler's Master Race.
The Lebensborn program has become a novel. It is the tale of a courageous French girl in the Resistance who is sent to one of these homes by the SS officer who commandeers her home, her village, and her innocence. It has received a gold medal for action fiction.

Awful!

No words for how bad this book was. The supposed "history" in it was not very accurate. The author's characters were shallow and obsessed with sex. Overall it was terrible. I returned the book.
