In occupied Poland Jewish Emma Bau's world has just turned upside down. It's 1939, her new husband has run away to fight against the Nazis in the resistance and Emma must assume a new Christian identity and go to work as a secretary at Nazi Headquarters. She soon finds she has feelings for her boss a man that she should hate.

I liked this book and I kept reading it because I wanted to find out what would happen to Emma but I found the story a little hard to swallow at times. I couldn't understand how Emma was attracted the the Kommandant immediately - a man that stood for everything that destroyed her life. I'd have preferred her to develop feelings for him as she got to know him.

That said, it was an entertaining read and I've never read about WW2 from the point of view of Poland before.
