Detrick, a German boy, was born with every quality that the Nazi’s considered superior, this would ensure his future as a leader of Adolph Hitler’s coveted Aryan race.
But on his 7th birthday, an unexpected event changed the course of his destiny forever. As the Nazis rose to power, Detrick was swept into a life filled with secrets, enemies, betrayals, alliances and danger at every turn.
However, in spite of the horrors and the terror surrounding him, Detrick would find a single flicker of light. He would discover the greatest gift of all, the gift of everlasting love.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
This book has it all…happiness, joy, wonder, love, betrayal, fear, sadness, pain, longing, and despair. I have not been so emotionally caught up in a book for a very long time! I would recommend this to anyone who loves to read and who can appreciate a book that grabs you and makes you experience everything right along with the well developed characters from the first page right through the very last! This book will linger in my memory forever!
I blame this book for making me tired this morning. I thought I would start it before bed but I found myself staying up until 5am to finish it! It immediately hooked me in and did not let me go until the last page. I very much enjoyed that the story was not completely centered around any one character and we got to see into the lives of many who were living in that turbulent time.
I adore this author, the way she writes, the descriptive words she uses, and how somehow, she makes it so that I know each character personally, and with all of that talent, she still manages to know all of her stuff!
Beautiful and tragic, heartbreaking and inspiring….this is the type of book that flawlessly interweaves fact and fiction. Based on a true tragedy, the author introduces us to characters we can’t help but love and we follow them through their harrowing journey. I couldn’t put it down, even when I tried.
This book is a big one! At 700 pages it takes a while to get through but it is worth every minute. The story is set during WW2. It has a very Romeo and Juliet feel to it. The main characters are from opposite sides of the conflict and struggle to be together. I highly recommend this book to anyone who roots for the underdog. Just amazing.

About The Author
I am an American author. My father was Romany and my mother was Jewish, When I was very young I learned about the Holocaust. I couldn’t understand how something like this could happen. So, I began to research and learn more. I met with survivors. I even met with children and grandchildren of SS officers. But I still had no answers. I cannot say that I have all of the answers to all of my questions even now. But what I do know is that soon all of the survivors will be gone. Their message must be remembered, the sacrifices that they made must not be forgotten. And so I humbly and with the utmost humility try to tell their stories. It is painful, but I must convey the darkness and horror of the time, but I also want the world the know and celebrate the unsung heroes. Because there were many ordinary people who acted in heroic ways. I realize that writing these books is a great responsibility. I pray every day that I am able to do this correctly. I am trying to reach out and touch many people, not with the message of the horrors but with the promise of hope. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for considering my work. It is an honor that I never take lightly.
I send you many blessings, Roberta
