Publisher's Summary

In 1935, the Nazis established a program called "The Lebensborn". Their agenda: To genetically engineer perfect Aryan children. These children were to be the new master race, once HItler had cleared all undesirable elements out of Europe. Within a year the first institution was built.
The year is 1943.... The forests of Munich are crawling with danger under the rule of "The Third Reich", but in order to save the life of her unborn child, Petra Jorgenson must escape from the Lebensborn Institute. Alone, seven months pregnant, and penniless, avoiding the watchful eyes of the armed guards in the overhead tower, she waits until the dead of night. Then, Petra climbs under the flesh-shredding barbed wire that surrounds the institute and at the risk of being captured and murdered she runs headlong into the terriying desolate woods.
Even during one of the darkest periods in the history of mankind, when horrific acts of cruelty became commonplace and Germany seemed to have gone crazy following the direction of a madman, unexpected heros came to light. And although there were those who would try to destroy it, true love would prevail. Here, in this lost land ruled by human monsters, Petra will learn that even when one faces what appears to be the end of the world if one looks hard enough one will find that there is always A Flicker of Light.

I Got Through It...

Interesting choice for a narrator. His accent was not what one might expect in a story about a Norwegian and Germans, and he seemd bored at times.
The story could’ve been better. Wondered if there was an editor...why imtroduce another character at the end of the story. Oh right, to get in a sex scene. And the blurbs mentioned the genetic engineering, but that was a very small part of the story. And at a few places the story just wasn’t believable . Some corny dialogue, too.
But yes, I got through it.

horrible narration

it's a shame such a well written story was so poorly narrated. the heroine, petra, was read as an emotionless dimwit. as well, the rest of the story lost all emotion due to the slow monotonous voice of the narrator.

Very disappointing

I have read quite a few books recently from Audible regarding events surrounding WW2. I was interested in this topic but found the narration unbearable. I set the speed of narration to 1.5 which helped a little but the voice had no expression, strange pronunciation and it was badly edited. Sorry but had to return the book.
