When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin


Munich, 1938. Evelyn Brand is an American foreign correspondent as determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated profession as she is to expose the growing tyranny in Nazi Germany. To do so, she must walk a thin line. If she offends the government, she could be expelled from the country--or worse. If she fails to truthfully report on major stories, she'll never be able to give a voice to the oppressed--and wake up the folks back home.

In another part of the city, American graduate student Peter Lang is working on his PhD in German. Disillusioned with the chaos in the world due to the Great Depression, he is impressed with the prosperity and order of German society. But when the brutality of the regime hits close, he discovers a far better way to use his contacts within the Nazi party--to feed information to the shrewd reporter he can't get off his mind.

This electric standalone novel from fan-favorite Sarah Sundin puts you right at the intersection of pulse-pounding suspense and heart-stopping romance.

My Review

This is a book that you never want to end, you become these characters, and will feel not only the danger and injustice, but all the helplessness.
Now I have read many books by this author, and she has never disappointed me, this one has to be one of the best. While we all know the outcome here, and wish that we could stop and change history, we put names to those wanting to stop the mania.
We are given a young woman, Evelyn Branch, a reporter station in Munich when the world was going mad, and trying make her way in a man's world. Circumstances put Harvard grad and working on his doctorate Peter Lang and Evelyn together. I found it very interesting the work Peter is doing and how then enemy could utilize his skills.
We are gifted with seeing how these two form a tentative friendship, and how their lives touch so many others.
You don't want to miss this one, it will linger with you long after the last page is turned.
I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
