Reviews

"Among the flood of war memoirs ... there has emerged one very different account. This is the story of a young Englishwoman who married a young German law student and went to live in Germany in 1935 and stayed there, witnessing the rise of Hitler and enduring the horrors of war as a wife and mother struggling to keep her family alive. Her experiences were those of a German ... [but] of course she was not a German. Her judgment remained cooler and more compassionate than that of her husband and friends--Germans who were filled with revulsion and despair at the crimes their own countrymen were committing... Peter Bielenberg was arrested in 1944, suspected of being involved in the July Plot. His wife ... may have saved his life by her brave confrontation with his interrogator."--Times Literary Supplement.
