Description
2015 Carol award finalist!Increasingly wary of her father's genetic research, Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with him to Germany—in the summer of 1939—will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter, Amelie, deaf since birth, as a blight on his Aryan bloodline.Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows he's as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders from every government building in Berlin. She fears her father's files may hold answers about Hitler's plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems "unworthy of life." She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she's never known.Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young—a driven, disarming American journalist and unlikely ally—who connects her to the resistance and to controversial theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Forced into hiding, Rachel's every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knife's edge, risking their lives—and asking others to do the same—for those they barely know but come to love.

        June 15, 2014

        On a trip to Germany in 1939, Rachel Kramer encounters her former suitor, Gerhardt Schlick, who is now an SS officer and married to Rachel's best friend, Kristine. Prior to her arrival, Rachel had received a letter, the first in five years, from her estranged friend who fears that her deaf daughter will become one of the people "unworthy of life" in the eyes of the Nazi regime. Meanwhile, Rachel also discovers that her well-known eugenics-scientist father's research may have a more sinister purpose than finding the cure for the TB that killed her mother. As World War II heats up, Rachel joins the German Resistance with American journalist Jason Young to help smuggle the "unworthy" out of the country. VERDICT In this compelling and tense novel, Christy Award-winning Gohlke (Band of Sisters; Promise Me This) tells a haunting story of the courageous few who worked tirelessly and at great risk to themselves to save people they did not know, whom they would not see again. Reminiscent of Tatiana de Rosnay's stirring stories of human compassion and hope, this should appeal to fans of both authors as well as to historical fiction readers.
