Summary

The heart-wrenching new WWII story from the best-selling author of The German Midwife

Berlin, 1938: it’s the height of summer, and Germany is on the brink of war. When fledgling reporter Georgie Young is posted to Berlin, alongside fellow Londoner Max Spender, she knows they are entering the eye of the storm. 

Arriving to a city swathed in red flags and crawling with Nazis, Georgie feels helpless, witnessing innocent people being torn from their homes. As tensions rise, she realises she and Max have to act - even if it means putting their lives on the line. 

But when she digs deeper, Georgie begins to uncover the unspeakable truth about Hitler’s Germany - and the pair are pulled into a world darker than she could ever have imagined....

"I was gripped by Georgie’s mission to alert the world to the horrors to come, as Hitler’s Germany prepares to create a new Europe.
