East Prussia, Nazi Germany, 1939. History professor Erik Mueller is a model citizen and a family man. He's also a decorated sergeant in the Gestapo. Proving his courage on the battlefields of Poland and the Soviet Union, and proud of the German army's victories across Europe, he embraces what he thinks is the righteousness of the Third Reich's cause.
But his loyalties are soon tested when he crosses paths with his old university friend Trude Bensheim. Forced into unemployment for being Jewish, Trude and her husband start a secret organization to help Jews escape Germany. But when they are betrayed by someone they thought they could trust, their lives hang in the balance.
Erik feels responsible for Trude's capture, and he knows he's in a position to help them. But when everything he holds dear is at stake, will he save his friends...or himself?

Loved every part of this book. It was well written and I couldn’t stop reading (listening). I really enjoy learning the history of WWII and I believe James did a great job portraying the sad, heartbreaking history though his characters. The character development was excellent and I felt I was able to get a glimpse of the different perspectives of those that lived through WWII. I also appreciate the historical information at the end of the book.

A Birtter Rain
This book wonderfully written,brings the reality of concentration camps and the victims to the fore front. The realization of our part as Americans or our lack of being a part of this war to help grieves me..
