Summary

For fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Kate Furnivall comes a gritty tale of courage, betrayal and love in the most unlikely of places.

Germany, 1944. Taken from the camps to serve the Fuhrer himself, Anke Hoff has been assigned as midwife to one of Hitler’s inner circle. If she refuses, her family will die.

Torn between her duty as a caregiver and her hatred for the regime she’s now a part of, Anke is quickly swept into a life unlike anything she’s ever known - and she discovers that many of those at the Berghof are just as trapped as she is. Soon, she’s falling for a man who will make her world more complicated still.

Before long, the couple is faced with an impossible choice - for which the consequences could be deadly. Can their forbidden love survive the horrors of war - and, more importantly, will they?

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this

It's a pretty good story with some extraordinary detail, I was amazed at how quickly I got drawn into the story and I really enjoyed it. The romance felt slightly underdeveloped and rushed but otherwise I would recommend.

Revealing other sides of the story

I had been reading several of the 2WW stories, this one is different since it will give the perspective about Germans living on a Nazi Germany and be a hostage in your own country.
Very interesting perspective that opens your mind that in both side there will always be good people and bad people.

I lost interest to the end.

The narrator gave the same frvolous voice to all female characters making it difficult to imagine the character in your mind because the voice didnt agree with the character's personality.
