Publisher's Summary

A USA Today best seller.

The heart-wrenching new WWII story from the best-selling author of The German Midwife, with exclusive audio content.

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 is pulled into a world darker than she could ever have imagined....

From the best-selling author of The German Midwife comes the heart-wrenching story of a country on the brink of war, a woman who puts herself in the line of fire and a world about to be forever changed.

Critic Reviews

"A gripping [listen], filled with tension and suspense as war brews in 1930s Berlin." (Fiona Valpy, best-selling author of The Dressmaker's Gift)

"The Berlin Girl paints a vibrant picture of some of the chilling harbingers of World War II. You'll gasp aloud and shed a few tears on this insightful, bold, fast-paced ride through Berlin's last moments of crumbling glory before the cloud of World War II descends." (Kristin Harmel, New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Lost Names)

"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. Mandy Robotham’s description of Berlin on the brink of war crackles with tension and shows us the best and worst of humanity." (Sarah Steele, author of The Missing Pieces of Nancy Moon)

Wonderful and kept my attention

At first I though the`main character. Might be a silly girl just romancing pre war Berlin. I was so wrong. What a strong brave woman she turned out to be. Innovative and loyal and ethical. I loved most of her characters and the evil ones were well developed I will read more from this author Deserves 5 stars Not afraid to tell the world of the atrocities of the nazis.

Hard to put down

I enjoyed this book very much with one exception. The deneument escape story was totally implausible and took this book from being great to just really good. But I still liked it...I guess fiction has its right to poetic license.

A Different Take on WW II History

If you like WWII historical fiction than this is the book for you. It is a take through reporters eyes. A view we don't often see when it comes to WWII and pre WWII. The book is well written, the characters are well developed. The narrator is great. Overall I think this is a great read.
