Summary
It is 1943, the height of World War II. With the men taken by the army, Berlin has become a city of women. 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. But behind this facade is an entirely different Sigrid, a woman who dreams of her former lover, a Jew, now lost in the chaos of the war. 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. This is a story of survival, of the unfathomable choices made and consequences suffered by those pushed to the brink.--B.I.P
