The German Wife
by Kelly Rimmer
Praise For This Book:
"Skillfully researched and powerfully written, The German Wife will capture you from the first page and stay with you forever. Set in the frightening reality of Nazi-controlled Germany, amid the dusty fields of a failed farm during the depression and after the war in a community facing prejudice and segregation, this is a story of what happens when choices are stripped away and the painful sacrifices made for loved ones exact a high price. Kelly Rimmer always delivers a poignant story with real characters who lodge themselves in your heart-this book is no exception." -Madeline Martin, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Bookshop in London

"Once again, Kelly Rimmer has turned my emotions upside down. With every book of hers I read, I become a more thoughtful and empathetic person, but The German Wife is, without a doubt, the jewel in her crown." -Sally Hepworth, New York Times bestselling author of The Younger Wife

"The German Wife is a heart-wrenching, uplifting story about love and family and the choices people make in impossible situations. Kelly Rimmer writes with deep compassion for human flaws and frailty, bringing us insight into the rise of Nazism through the eyes of her protagonist, Sofie, the wife of a German rocket scientist who is forced to make a new life after the war in an American community that is hostile to her presence. An unforgettable historical novel that explores important questions highly relevant to the world today." -Christine Wells, author of Sisters of the Resistance

"In an intensely compelling story about what it means to be a family in the worst circumstances and with the darkest secrets, The German Wife is powerful novel for our time... If you love the work of Kristin Harmel and Pam Jenoff, you have found your next read." -Patti Callahan, New York Times bestselling author of Once Upon a Wardrobe
