About "Saving Amelie"

It's the summer of 1939, and Rachel Kramer is determined her trip to Germany with her geneticist father will be her last. But a cryptic letter from estranged friend Kristine changes everything. As Rachel tries to save Kristine's young deaf daughter Amelie, the SS goes on the hunt.
- Koorong

Increasingly wary of her father's genetic research, Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with him to Germany--in the summer of 1939--will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter, Amelie, deaf since birth, as a blight on his Aryan bloodline.Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows he's as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders from every government building in Berlin. She fears her father's files may hold answers about Hitler's plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems "unworthy of life." She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she's never known.Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young--a driven, disarming American journalist and unlikely ally--who connects her to the resistance and to controversial theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Forced into hiding, Rachel's every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knife's edge, risking their lives--and asking others to do the same--for those they barely know but come to love.

Fantastic writing, a great first novel.
5 stars By Lucy, Aug 26 2014
Wow! What a read! I was so caught up in this story that I forgot to make dinner. Set in Germany at the outbreak of World War II, the author has evidently well researched the historical events to ensure the story is believable. It's an easy read in regard to the language and format; a harder read in regard to the subject matter. I was equally wanting to keep reading to find out what happened next, while at the same time unsure if I really wanted to be made aware of the next challenges the characters were to face. Fantastic writing and a great first novel. If you're looking for a great new piece of fiction, this is it.
