In this audiobook, Nancy Peterson captures two very different worlds: WWII Europe and contemporary America. Hanna Tillich is a German archaeologist in the 1940s, and Ember Ellis is a contemporary American who seeks an authentic wartime hero to research for her PhD thesis. As Tillich, Peterson depicts a fascinating fearless woman who rejects her allegiance to the Nazis after observing their brutal tactics and fights desperately for her young adopted daughter. Equally well rendered is Ellis, who is the novel's weak link. Using Tillich as her subject, Ellis hopes to challenge present-day prejudices against global refugees. Sadly, coincidences detract from the story, which is otherwise rich with evocative description, compelling history, and tender spiritual elements--all skillfully presented by Peterson.
