"This family is amazing! A Nazi spy. A future SS officer. A brother in America oblivious to everything. And a sister who would kill us all."
Germany, 1934 - SS officers entered the house of Hedwig Schultz and ripped her 14-year-old brother, Edmund, from her arms. He has been selected for an elite division of the Hitler Youth that will train him for indoctrination into the feared SS.
Horrified, Hedwig enlists the help of her brother in America to thwart Nazi plans regarding the Final Solution of the Jewish people. It becomes a cat and mouse game as the family enters a world of Nazi spies, double agents, and the Underground movement. All the while, Hedwig must prevent their brother, Edmund, from becoming suspicious. One report of treason to his Hitler Youth instructors would result in death... or worse.

An Epic Masterpiece
No, I wouldn't listen to this book again because it is a really long story. However, this does not speak for how great the book is. It is over 9 hours of quality reading and superb material.
Without revealing too much - the most memorable moment of this book was when Hedwig revealed that she knew what had really happened to her parents.
Hedwig was the best presentation of a character by the voice over talent. She presented her as strong yet vulnerable.
The moment in the book that particularly moved me was the event of the Hindenburg disaster and how it affects the family. I really didn't see that coming.
This was a great story! The reader did a decent job, but I did notice a few punch ins that were very obvious and stuck out. Otherwise, this epic story is an awesome listen and well worth the investment!
