From the Publisher:
It is 1943?the height of the Second World War. With the men taken by the army, Berlin has become a city of women. And while her husband fights on the Eastern Front, Sigrid Schröder is, for all intents and purposes, the model soldier?s wife: She goes to work every day, does as much with her rations as she can, and dutifully cares for her meddling mother-in-law, all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime.
| But behind this façade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman who dreams of her former Jewish lover, who is now lost in the chaos of the war.
| Sigrid?s tedious existence is turned upside down when she finds herself hiding a mother and her two young daughters?whom she believes might be her lover?s family?and she must make terrifying choices that could cost her everything.
