Lindsay’s review

An entertaining and adventurous journey in prewar Berlin.

Georgie is at the start of her investigative journalist career. She is sent to Berlin to uncover the truth about about who Hitler is and how people feel in prewar Berlin about this new rising leader.

I loved Georgie! She was an endearing and brave character who I loved rooting for. It was interesting to experience her shocking discoveries of how powerful and horrific the Nazi party truly was at a time when everyone was uncertain of what Hitlers leadership would actually amount to.

The first half of the novel was much stronger than the second half. Georgie’s journey took some extreme and unrealistic turns that took away from my enjoyment. I think the author tried to include too many examples of heroic behaviour within one character. However, I do appreciate learning about different avenues the Resistance used.

Overall, this was an entertaining read that I enjoyed escaping into. I recommend for readers who are looking for a less gritty, lighter WWII novel.

Thank you to Harper Collins Canada for sending me a physical ARC to read and review!
