About the Author
ECPA best-selling author Amanda Barratt fell in love with writing in grade school when she wrote her first story—a spin-off of Jane Eyre. Now, Amanda writes romantic, historical fiction, penning stories of beauty and brokenness set against the backdrop of bygone eras not so very different from our own. She’s the author of over a dozen novels and novellas including The White Rose Resists: A Novel of the German Students Who Defied Hitler and My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love.
Amanda lives in the woods of Michigan with her family, where she can be found reading way too many books, plotting her next novel, and jotting down imaginary travel itineraries for her dream vacation to Europe.

‘Who among us knows what we are capable of doing to survive until the choice is before us?’
To review a book such as this is a hard thing indeed. Amanda Barratt has written a powerful and unflinching look at a period of history that is incredibly painful. Barratt’s research into this dark time is impeccable and she does not hold back the gritty details.
I’ve read many books on the subject of the Holocaust, but Barratt makes it come alive in an achingly intense way as we come to know the characters in this book.
A word of warning: this story is hard to read at times. Many times. But read it we must. We don’t just read about an event in history. We get to know it personally from those who lived it. A truly stunning account of a devastating time. Barratt’s telling will resound long after the last page. Well done!
