Publisher's Summary

All her life, Hannah Sterling longed for a close relationship with her estranged mother. Following Lieselotte's death, Hannah determines to unlock the secrets of her mother's mysterious past and is shocked to discover a grandfather living in Germany. Thirty years earlier, Lieselotte's father is quickly ascending the ranks of the Nazi party, and a proper marriage for his daughter could help advance his career.
Lieselotte is in love - but her beloved Lukas is far from an ideal match, as he secretly works against the Reich. Yet Lieselotte never imagined how far her father would go to ensure her cooperation. Both Hannah's and Lieselotte's stories unfold as Hannah travels to Germany to meet her grandfather, who is hiding wartime secrets of his own.
Longing for connection yet shaken by all she uncovers, Hannah must decide if she can atone for her family's tragic past and how their legacy will shape her future.

NO stars (if possible)

Another WWII story that could have taken place, but doubtful, however the most unbelievable part was when the author began to preach about forgiveness & Jesus Christ....really? This was not listed under 'religious fiction'....where it should have been!!
The narrator was awful. She 'tried' to speak German and failed. Her pronunciation of German words & names was atrocious and totally annoying to listen to. The narration sounded like a child learning to read. Don't these audio recording companies listen to the performers they employ? In this case, very doubtful!!!!!!!
Skip this one, folks!!!!

Loved it!

My husband and I listened to this one together. While I am not a history buff, this book draws you in. We loved the 2 narrators and how the story was told from different viewpoints. It is well written and very thought-provoking, especially about such a traumatic time in history. We can highly recommend this book and would like to read others by this author.
