Sarah Sundin has a new standalone novel and it was an intriguing read!
An American writer in Germany at the start of World War II, Evelyn Brand is looking to make her way in a male-dominated profession. Also in Munich is American Peter Lang, working on his PhD in German, studying the transfer to American accents when speaking German and German accents when speaking English. As their paths meet and cross and tensions with the war heat up, the two Americans get into more danger than they realize.
I enjoyed the two storylines in this book between the main characters; it reminded me a little of the PBS show “World on Fire” and I would be interested in watching this book made into a movie or TV show as well. While it wasn’t my favorite plot, the characters were so interesting that I kept reading for their sakes’. Overall, it was a good read for anyone looking for a historical romance set in World War II.
