1945. Surviving the brutality of a Nazi prison camp, Marta Nederman is lucky to have escaped with her life. Recovering from the horror, she meets Paul, an American soldier who gives her hope of a happier future. But their plans to meet in London are dashed when Paul's plane crashes.
Devastated and pregnant, Marta marries Simon, a caring British Diplomat and glimpses the joy that home and family can bring. But her happiness is threatened when she learns of a communist spy in British intelligence, and that the one person who can expose the traitor is connected to her past...
In this dramatic follow-up to the bestselling Kommandant's Girl, Pam Jenoff writes of a time of uneasy peace and rising paranoia, when love and desperation could make liars of us all.(thanks to her website)
Wow,this book was almost as good as her first novel! So many twists that I didn't always see coming!! I loved the setting and time period,I am a sucker for WWII. These characters were interesting and at times Marta was a tad annoying but she sure had a tough life! I thoroughly enjoyed this read! I give it an A.

I was a bit skeptical of this new novel of hers because her last book was rather a dud and a disappointment. But this one was better! I liked the suspense and slight mystery,although it did seem to be bland until about three-fourths of the way done then it picked up speed. I saw the ending coming but it was still an enjoyable read. This book isn't as anxiety-riddled as her first two but there is an intense part that kept me on my toes. I liked Toni and Ryan,but her Mother was something else! I give this a solid B.
