No history geek worth his or her salt hasn't heard of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Including me. I knew the bare bones of his story, but there was a lot I didn't know. I knew nothing about Maria von Wedemeyer. Now I do!

I'd been looking forward to this story since I first heard that it was going to release. I've read several of Amanda Barratt's historical romance novellas and enjoyed them. This book did not disappoint. Barratt did a great job of putting the flesh on these historical figures. She shows a side of Bonhoeffer that the history books never could.

You don't have to be a WWII buff, or even that much of a history buff, to enjoy this novel. This story is about the people - not the history. If you know history, then you know the ending, but the getting there is a very good read.
