Mary and Lee have gone from best friends to competing WWII journalists, but a bombing raid gone wrong puts Mary's life at risk and sends Lee on a heroic rescue attempt through the fierce teeth of combat. Then, amidst an adventurous struggle for freedom, they uncover the story of the unspeakable Lebensborn atrocity. With equal doses of adrenaline and poignancy, Tricia Goyer's storytelling brings well-crafted characters to life in a graphically authentic World War II setting. She places readers not only behind enemy lines into the heat of battle, but also deep into the innermost sanctuary of the human heart.
Tricia Goyer does such a good job of taking a time in history and making it come alive in fiction form. The reviews given in the front of the book, by people who lived during this time is history, let There he selects children with highly desired Aryan features from German-occupied lands and places them with German families for indoctrination into the Nazi state.
When Katrine revea Katrine is living a lie. When Katrine reveals her pregnancy, to her shock Hendrick sends her to live in a Lebensborn home, where she meets other women selected to become "honored" mothers for the Third Reich, meant to perpetuate the Aryan ideal by giving birth to children with suitable Nazi fathers.

Her characters' actions and emotions ring true thanks to Goyer's meticulous research and the extensive interviews she conducts as background work for her novels. The fast-paced action is balanced by great emotional depth, as Goyer explores everything from the thrill of victory to the power of great sacrifice and loss. This is a story about lives profoundly changed through the crucible of unimaginable horror and conflict.
Mary and Lee's journeys especially resonated with me -- it is all to easy to simply focus on oneself and how every situation you encounter impacts you and you alone. Goyer takes her characters on a journey of spiritual awakening that opens their eyes to life beyond themselves, and how God can use people inspite of their fears, to reveal His grace and mercy. Mary and Lee discover that the war is much more than a chance for them to advance their careers as reporters -- it is an opportunity for God to use their lives and talents in the most unexpected of ways, with an impact far greater than they ever could have dreamed.

Many of them never returning back to their homes. Also the story included reporters and the extent they went to get the war news out to the public.

I will start by saying that Goyer is an impressive writer. It's obvious that she does a lot of research for her novels. It shows with how she peppers in so many facts to make her fictional stories come to life. This is one of my favorite books that she has written.

In my opinion the book could have been better if it had more about Katherine and the trying situation she was in. Through out the book I had a heart wrenching pain for the Jews and the trails they went through during the war. Sep 18, GJ S rated it it was amazing. This was a hard book to read on how the Nazis tortured the Jews.
There were many non Jews who helped them to escape. I recommend this christian author and this 4th book.

Surprisingly, the main focus of her story is not the men who fought the battles in this bloody, war-torn era. These women find their lives intertwined despite their vast differences. Katrine is an Aryan-appearing Jew hiding in plain sight in Nazi-occupied Belgium. Her deception is so effective and complete that she becomes pregnant with the child of a Nazi Schutzstaffel officer.
She lives in terror that her secret will be discovered, thus threatening her life and the life of her unborn child. Heinrich, the SS officer, has devout belief in the righteousness of the Nazi cause.
He is a complex character who possesses great national pride and a single-minded drive that is stereotypical of Nazi inflexibility and madness. Though he seems human at times, his humanity is often swallowed up by the part of him that is has become a brutally evil monstrosity. His actions are governed by his misguided belief in the Nazi philosophy of Aryan supremacy, his rationalization of the Nazi breeding program, and a deep desire to produce a son to perpetuate the Thousand Year Reich.
The Historical Notes and Acknowledgments pages, thoughtfully included by the author, speak of the care she has taken to bring her readers realism through research and historical accuracy.
