Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

WWII atrocities are dramatized through the relationship between the English widow of a German surgeon and an exiled American with German roots. The lovers' terror, loyalties, and entanglements take place amid the appalling history that is woven into their daily lives. Anne Flosnik's crisp enunciation serves as a striking counterpoint to vivid descriptions of Nazi concentration camps and wartime battlefields. Her portrayals of Kate, the widow, and other characters are so realistic that they could be mistaken for the work of a full cast. Michael Page's bravery as Charles, the American, is audible through his stoic narration of the brutality he witnesses while spying for the British. The struggle for survival and the tension between collaboration and loyalty are the themes of this novel, which is reminiscent of the work of Graham Greene.
