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 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.
