Summary from Goodreads:
In 1930’s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Gretchen Muller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her “uncle” Dolf, has been shielded from that side of Society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf’s, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet.
Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler.
And Gretchen follows his every command.
Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter names Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel yet she can’t stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adores Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can’t help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she’s been taught to believe about Jews.
As Gretchen investigates the very people she's always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed?
From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she’s ever believed…and to trust her own heart instead.
Why I'm waiting:
I'm obsessed with all things related to the Holocaust and even though this is Fiction, it still tugs at my heart strings. Can't wait to get my hands on it!
