Publisher's Summary

“Please, let me help. I won’t tell anyone.” It was madness to help an escaped prisoner in Nazi Germany, but how could she not? If it weren’t for a lucky strike of fate, she might be the woman on the ground shivering with fear. A light of hope entered the prisoner’s eyes, and she knew what she had to do....

Germany, 1942: When a young woman calling herself Annegret Huber unexpectedly inherits a huge fortune, including a house and factory just outside Berlin, her first thought is to try to see out the war quietly, avoiding the Gestapo and SS as best she can.

No one needs to know her dark secret. She must focus on staying hidden. Because she can’t risk being exposed for who she truly is. Not really Annegret. But a girl living a secret life. A girl who was once called Margarete.

But then an encounter with an escaped prisoner changes everything, as Margarete discovers what is happening at the factory and its attached labor camp. Witnessing firsthand the suffering of prisoners - shivering, with faces gaunt from hunger, as they work in brutal and cruel conditions - she realizes she must act.

If she can save just one life, she knows she has to. Because the truth is that Margarete resembles the prisoners in the camp in ways she daren’t admit. And on the other side of the fence, she has seen a face that is achingly familiar....

An absolutely gripping and devastating story, perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, All the Light We Cannot See, and My Name Is Eva.

Very Good!

This is the 2nd book in the series and I enjoyed it as much as the 1st book. You wouldn't need to listen to the 1st book but it would help to gain a better understanding of lead character. The author does such a great job of setting up the scenes that my mind invisions what it looks like and plays like a movie in my head. You will love this book and the WWII history bits that are thrown in.

From the Dark we Rise

I found this narration over acted. The narrator had a high pitched, inappropriate and irritating voice. The writing is not up to standard of spy novels such as those by Mara Timon or Ken Follett or Alex Gerlis for example.
