Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. This week I've picked the sequel to a book I LOVED!! Prisoner of Night and Fog got me really thinking about a period of history I hadn't really thought about before. Between World War I and II. And right about the time I read this, I think the History Channel put out a show talking about the two World Wars and kind of postulating that really they were all one big war. Now that there is a cover for the 2nd book, I'm ready to use it for my Wednesday post. And here is the blurb from Goodreads.com:
The girl known as Gretchen Whitestone has a secret: She used to be part of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle. More than a year after she made an enemy of her old family friend and fled Munich, she lives with a kindly English family, posing as an ordinary German immigrant, and is preparing to graduate from high school. Her love, Daniel Cohen, is a reporter in town. For the first time in her life, Gretchen is content.
But then, Daniel gets a telegram that sends him back to Germany, and Gretchen’s world turns upside-down. And when she receives word that Daniel is wanted for murder, she has to face the danger she thought she’d escaped-and return to her homeland.
Gretchen must do everything she can to avoid capture and recognition, even though saving Daniel will mean consorting with her former friends, the Nazi elite. And as they work to clear Daniel’s name, Gretchen and Daniel discover a deadly conspiracy stretching from the slums of Berlin to the Reichstag itself. Can they dig up the explosive truth and get out in time-or will Hitler discover them first?
I really cannot wait to read this book! And it's not out till April! I'm hoping that once again I can get an e-galley to read. I loved the first one so much I made sure to immediately put it on my list to order books for my high school library this year. And this will be the same.
So what are you waiting on this week?
