You will be riveted by this heart-wrenching story of a young French woman, Antoinette, whose home is taken over by SS officers. She is forced to act as a servant in her own house and live in the attic. Eventually, Antoinette succumbs to the advances of the charming but cruel Major Reinhart, but plans to use him to gain information she can pass on to the French resistance. The pregnancy that results from her union with the Major leads him to discard her and send her to a Lebensborn. You will be spellbound as you follow Antoinette’s difficult journey out of the Lebensborn and into an SS party house, where she is to act as chef. And you will be captivated as Antoinette’s yearning for freedom leads her to a downed British pilot whom she plans to rescue. While Antoinette is forced to join in the depravity of an SS party, and while she suffers at the hands of the Gestapo after her capture, she teaches us to cling to hope when all else seems lost. Don’t miss this stirring story of love and faith in a time of war.
