By Lecoat, Jenny
In June 1940, the inhabitants of the British Channel islands watch in horror as the German army takes possession unopposed in preparation for their invasion of England. Hedy Bercu, a young Jewish girl from Vienna who fled to the safety of Jersey two years earlier to escape the Na...zis, finds herself once more entrapped, but this time with no way of escape. Hiding her racial status, Hedy is employed by the German authorities and secretly embarks on small acts of resistance. But most dangerously of all, she falls in love with German lieutenant Kurt Rummele - a relationship on which her life will soon depend. A remarkable novel of finding hope and love when all seems at its darkest.Read more
