"Skillfully researched and powerfully written, The German Wife will capture you from the first page." --Madeline Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Bookshop in London

The New York Times bestselling author of The Warsaw Orphan returns with a gripping novel inspired by the true story of Operation Paperclip: a controversial secret US intelligence program that employed former Nazis after WWII.

Berlin, Germany, 1930--When the Nazis rise to power, Sofie von Meyer Rhodes and her academic husband benefit from the military ambitions of Germanys newly elected chancellor when Jrgen is offered a high-level position in their burgeoning rocket program. Although they fiercely oppose Hitlers radical views, and joining his ranks is unthinkable, it soon becomes clear that if Jrgen does not accept the job, their income will be taken away. Then their children. And then their lives.

Huntsville, Alabama, 1950--Twenty years later, Jrgen is one of many German scientists pardoned and granted a position in Americas space program. For Sofie, this is a chance to leave the horrors of her past behind. But when rumors about the Rhodes familys affiliation with the Nazi party spread among her new American neighbors, idle gossip turns to bitter rage, and the act of violence that results tears apart a family and leaves the community wondering--is it an act of vengeance or justice?

"An unforgettable novel that explores important questions highly relevant to the world today." --Christine Wells, author of Sisters of the Resistance
