Customer Review

on January 10, 2001
A brilliant thought provoking book of an Englishwomans struggle to survive in Nazi Germany with a husband and young children. Through the course of the book we follow her path from an educated priviledged background in England, her acceptance into German academic society - she lives through the traumas of seeing her family doctor dissappearing most probably to a concentration camp, her husband's closest friend executed for treason and her husband's eventual imprisonment in a concentration camp.
Throughout her time in Nazi Germany she maintains her "Englishness" whilst gaining acceptance as a German Housewife - leading to her house arrest in a rural part of Germany (during the time her husband was imprisoned) and then towards the end of the war her trip to see the SS to convince them of her husband's innocence.
Overall the book is well written and has a gripping story line - difficult to put down.
