NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Whom do you trust, whom do you love, and who can be saved? A gripping tale of Berlin in the Second World War, from the author of Annelies.

It is 1943--the height of the Second World War. With the men away at the front, Berlin has become a city of women.

On the surface, Sigrid Schr der is the model German soldier's wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.

But behind this fa ade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman of passion who dreams of her former Jewish lover, now lost in the chaos of the war. But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets--she soon finds herself caught between what is right and what is wrong, and what falls somewhere in the shadows between the two . . .
