    Description

    Would you risk your life to save just one person?

    An incredible story of love, hope, and friendship; and a testament to humanity and courage in history’s darkest days.

    1941, Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. Professor Josef Held has never recovered from the loss of his beloved wife - and has no intention of ever letting anyone new into his quiet, safe world. It is a world where the clock ticks steadily in his mathematics classroom, where every equation has a solution. Every day he walks the same route home, past his neighbour Mrs Epstein’s, to a home inhabited only by him and a cat he refuses to even name.

    But then the Nazis come for the Jews - and Mrs Epstein is killed. And Josef, in an impulsive act of courage, offers his student Michael Blum a place to hide.

    Michael is everything Josef is not: spontaneous, poetic, and unafraid to love. Even though his passionate relationship with a Dutch girl called Elke strictly is forbidden by the Nazis - for he is Jewish, and she is not.

    Desperate to give Michael and Elke’s love a chance to survive, Josef gives Michael refuge in his attic: an act of bravery and resistance that will change both of their lives. But as the dark days of war continue, with danger and betrayal at every turn, no-one can be trusted, and no one is safe.

    If Michael is going to get back to the woman he loves, it is down to Josef - to find the hero inside himself, and do whatever it takes to keep Michael alive.

    A heartbreakingly beautiful story about love, trust, and courage against the odds, perfect for fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Lilac Girls, and The Nightingale.

    Didn’t want it to end!

    This was a wonderful story. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Totally engrossing , characters engaging and well developed. An interesting look at occupied Amsterdam. Well done Suzanne and the narrator was great as well. Definitely worth a credit! Best book I’ve listened to in a while and I listen to many.

    Touching

    I couldn’t stop listening from the very beginning. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing these characters and their anguish of living during the war to life. I’ve listened to hundreds of books about the pain of war and this is one of the most captivating stories of all. It deserves more than five stars.

    Emotional Journey

    What a touching and emotional story about love, loss, life and redemption set in the midst of the Nazi occupation of Holland. A story of human courage in the face of some of the greatest evil this world has ever known. This book will make you laugh, touch your heart and if you’re like me it will make you cry. I wholeheartedly recommend any and everybody to get this book.

    phenomenal book

    This is one of the best books I have read or listened to. It was well paced and laid out. The characters were so real. I enjoyed the narration although some of his accents weren't super great. He had a pleasant voice in general.

    Superb!

    Couldn’t stop listening but yet I didn’t want it to end! Completely absorbed into the lives of the characters and their emotions! Love getting lost in picturesque works of historical fiction!

    Loved this book!

    This book is terrific. I’ve read a lot of books on the holocaust and occupation and this book did not disappoint. I liked that the story continued on after the war ended. The ending was a surprise. I did not watch TV during the two weeks it took me to finish listening to the book.
