“This book needs to join the ranks of the classic survivor stories of WWII such as ‘Diary of Anne Frank’ and ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’. It is truly that amazing!” -InD’taleMagazine

Multi Award-Winner

A True Coming-of-age Love Story Set in WWII Germany.

Spanning thirteen years from 1940 to 1953 and set against the epic panorama of WWII, author Annette Oppenlander’s Surviving the Fatherland is a sweeping saga of family, love, and betrayal that illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the children’s war.

Surviving the Fatherland tells the true and heart-wrenching stories of Lilly and Günter struggling with the terror-filled reality of life in the Third Reich, each embarking on their own dangerous path toward survival, freedom, and ultimately each other. Based on the author’s own family and anchored in historical facts, this story celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the strength of war children.

When her father goes off to war, seven-year-old Lilly is left with an unkind mother who favors her brother and chooses to ignore the lecherous pedophile next door. A few blocks away, twelve-year-old Günter also looses his father to the draft and quickly takes charge of supplementing his family’s ever-dwindling rations by any means necessary.

As the war escalates and bombs begin to rain, Lilly and Günter’s lives spiral out of control. Every day is a fight for survival. On a quest for firewood, Lilly encounters a dying soldier and steals her father’s last suit to help the man escape. Barely sixteen, Günter ignores his draft call and embarks as a fugitive on a harrowing 47-day ordeal–always just one step away from execution.

When at last the war ends, Günter grapples with his brother’s severe PTSD and the fact that none of his classmates survived. Welcoming denazification, Lilly takes a desperate step to rid herself once and for all of her disgusting neighbor’s grip. When Lilly and Günter meet in 1949, their love affair is like any other. Or so it seems. But old wounds and secrets have a way of rising to the surface once more.

“This was an excellent story, captivating and well written!” -Emily P.

Jacintha Seaworth is wise, complex and watchful. A beautiful woman, she nevertheless prefers to sit out from the dances, preferring to watch people and their interactions.

She really couldn’t have chosen a childhood friend more different from her than Henry Musgrave, brother to family friend Claudia, and quite a social ladies’ man.

Now that Jacintha is the next daughter in line to fulfill her father’s wishes of seeing all of his daughters married before his illness takes him, it’s time for her to grow up and actually evaluate her feelings for Henry.

It’s true that Alexander Slate, naval captain and Earl of Highbury, is a much more suitable match, but Jacintha will never be able to deny that there is something there inside of her for Henry. For all his shortcomings, maybe, just maybe, he could become a changed man.

If only the path to love for at least one of the Seaworth daughters could be free of doubt or worry.
Somehow, it doesn’t even look like sweet and kind hearted Jacintha will be spared a dramatic and harrowing road to love.

I wanted to taste freedom.

In a world where women are seen as a commodity to barter, Alaska promised a sanctuary. But to stay, I have to enter the wife lottery.

Six men, one wife. And I have no say in who those men will be. It’s more than a game of chance – it’s my life falling into the hands of strangers.

But the men who win my hand are ruggedly handsome and promise to protect me until death do us part.

Fallon and his strong will. Giles and his protective streak. Salinger and his easy smile. Banks and his intellect. Emerson and his faith. Huxley and his charm.

I want them all, each for a different reason. My body is awake, my heart beats wild. But I’m also a woman running from a past that’s catching up. Fast. My father is coming for me and he’ll make my husbands pay – and that’s not a gamble.

That’s a guarantee.
