Publisher's Summary

Drawing on the true story of the White Rose - the resistance movement of young Germans against the Nazi regime - The Traitor tells of one woman who offers her life in the ultimate battle against tyranny, during one of history's darkest hours.

In the summer of 1942, as war rages across Europe, a series of anonymous leaflets appears around the University of Munich, speaking out against escalating Nazi atrocities. The leaflets are hidden in public places, or mailed to addresses selected at random from the phone book. Natalya Petrovich, a student, knows who is behind the leaflets - a secret group called the White Rose, led by siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl and their friends. 

As a volunteer nurse on the Russian front, Natalya witnessed the horrors of war first-hand. She willingly enters the White Rose's circle, where every hushed conversation, every small act of dissent could mean imprisonment or death at the hands of an infuriated Gestapo. Natalya risks everything alongside her friends, hoping the power of words will encourage others to resist. But even among those she trusts most, there is no guarantee of safety - and when danger strikes, she must take an extraordinary gamble in her own personal struggle to survive.

Not all the Germans are guilty.

I recommend this book to everyone who wants to know more about the innocent Germans who were against Hitler and the atrocities that he and his people committed.

Great historical Novak

I’ve listened to “The Taster” and “The Traitor”. Both books were great, however, I believe the Taster was a bit better.

“The Taster” captured the reader/listeners from start to finish. Although a great story, it took a bit longer to get into “ The Traitor”

At the end, I would recommend both books with a slight nudge to “The Taster”.

Best, Glenda

Just ok

I honestly thought this book was going to be much better than it was. All they did was mail out a few leaflets and spray paint some buildings. I'd hardly call that resistance. A lot of what happened especially at the hospital didn't seem believable. I guess I'll have to look it up and see if it's true. And the narrator was very monotone, I actually fell asleep a few times which has never happened before. I've read a lot of this particular genre, this one is definitely low on my list of books I've enjoyed.
