    Description

    A woman unlocks the mystery of her father's wartime past in a moving novel about secrets, sacrifice, and the power of love by the bestselling author of Daughters of the Night Sky.

    Beth Cohen wants to make the most of the months she has left with her elderly father, Max. His only request of his daughter is to go through the long-forgotten box of memorabilia from his days as a medic on the western front. Then, among his wartime souvenirs, Beth finds a photograph of her father with an adoring and beautiful stranger - a photograph worth a thousand questions.

    It was 1944 when Max was drawn into the underground resistance by the fearless German wife of a Nazi officer. Together, she and Max were willing to risk everything for what they believed was right. Ahead of them lay a dangerous romance, a dream of escape, and a destiny over which neither had control.

    But Max isn't alone in his haunting remembrances of war. In a nearby private care home is a fragile German-born woman with her own past to share. Only when the two women meet does Beth realize how much more to her father there is to know, all the ways in which his heart still breaks, and the closure he needs to heal it.

    Great story

    Always something to keep you listening as long as you can. I especially love that it was clean without all the sex usually you have to put up with

    Satisfying Story and Excellent Performance

    My wife and I loved this book and listened to it together. After we got used to this switching of timelines, it all began to make sense and we enjoyed it to the very end. Excellent performances by all three narrators.

    Powerful Women!

    Wonderful, breathtaking, and emotional Across the winding Rivers was truly a masterpiece.

    This is the story of a family that had to do everything they could to survive the atrocities of the War, they had to hide where they came from, they had to do things they were not proud of, to be able to survive even if that meant to work for the enemy.

    Beth Cohen is taking care of her dad, he is terribly ill and doesn't have much time left, she wants to make the most time with him, getting to know more about his past during the War days. how did he met her mother, did he had other children? she was so eager to know more about that side but she wasn't expecting to hear such a revelation, a revelation that will push her to seek and search and find answers before her Dad leaves this world.

    Max is a War Survivor, he has a very complicated story about those days that he barely speaks about that time, but now Beth is on a mission to find what he lost, to find answers so he will finally leave this world in peace and with a more happy ending. Max spend those days retelling his story to Beth, confiding her secrets that he kept in his heart for so long and that only Her mother knew about.

    Many great characters and situations made this book so amazing, we met great secondary characters that were pure evil and always seeking to find something to put in jail or even kill Johanna Patterson and her sister Metta. Two amazing characters that really gave so much to this story.

    Mettas story was my favorite because she was a true heroine, she was strong and always wanted to help and protect her family. even if she had to do the unthinkable to married the enemy.

    Johanna Patterson was another favorite character she was also very strong, she was trying also to protect her sister and her family. she was an amazing heroine too, not only she was smart and strong she designed and flew planes, that was so impressive, I never read a character that was a pilot or designed planes. it was so refreshing to read these amazing women.

    Max character was also a great Hero, he really was kind, and I love how his story showed us the love or the romantic part during those terrible days.

    My only complaint, I wish Metta had a better ending, she was my favorite, she was a woman that I respect and look for, she was an amazing example for many.

    The Narrations by Kathleen Gati, Lisa Flanagan, and Michael Crouch AMAZING!! wonderful job, I did enjoy so much how you guys gave so much power to these characters, you made me feel every emotion they went through, thank you for such beautiful work.

    Overall it was amazing, I enjoy this book so much especially the way it was written, with so many details from the War and so many details from the present moment

    Read it in 2 days

    It certainly kept my attention. Although the story was a bit cliche’ I enjoyed it. I’ve read so many WWII novels with the recently divorced daughter, old parent in a care facility, one gone, secrets of the war, being in the resistance, etc. etc. etc. The narration was good except for the big gasps of air Max took after each sentence.

    This is an okay read. Has a storyline error. Can't highly recommended it, but it's okay. Had a positive ending that I liked.

    Too Many Coincidences

    I was all set to give this book a 5star rating until I got near the end. There were just too many unbelievable coincidental happenings to be believable. I won’t list them because they would be spoilers........but I can’t imagine that the author could not come up with more plausible explanations for some of the points she was making. Overall.....a good book which I thoroughly enjoyed!

    Loved It!!!

    The narration was awesome! The storyline was unique and I love the historical part of it. I cant help wishing that the story told what happened to the villain in the end. Overall , it was very entertaining!

    Not only a great story but educational

    It’s not often you read about Germans in the resistance. Or the emotional toll living under Hitler took on the lives of any German with a conscience.
    And I’m sure there were many unsung heroes.
    A wonderful story
    I listened as long as I could until finished. Will probably listen again. The lives of the characters were riveting.
    I highly recommend
