Narrator Nicola Barber's youthful timbre and determined tone are well matched to the character of Sophie Scholl, whose heavily researched story is written in verse. Wilson recounts the true story of a student-led resistance movement in WWII Germany. Blending somber reflection and impassioned urgency, Barber transports listeners back and forth in time through the war and its aftermath. Listeners hear the ominous beginnings of the fascist dictatorship, the students' courageous creation and distribution of pamphlets opposing the Nazi regime, and their chilling arrest by the Gestapo. Barber maintains the high stakes and strong characterizations in Wilson's narrative. The afterword provides context that may inspire listeners to learn more about the history of the White Rose.
