Annotation ""Please, let me help. I won't tell anyone." It was madness to help an escaped prisoner in Nazi Germany, but how could she not? If it weren't for a lucky strike of fate, she might be the woman on the ground shivering with fear. A light of hope entered the prisoner's eyes and she knew what she had to do... 1942, Germany: When a young woman calling herself Annegret Huber unexpectedly inherits a huge fortune, including a house and factory just outside Berlin, her first thought is to try to see out the war quietly, avoiding the Gestapo and SS as best she can. No one needs to know her dark secret. She must focus on staying hidden. Because she can't risk being exposed for who she truly is. Not really Annegret. But a girl living a secret life. A girl who was once called Margarete. But then an encounter with an escaped prisoner changes everything, as Margarete discovers what is happening at the factory and its attached labor camp. Witnessing first-hand the suffering of prisoners-shivering, with faces gaunt from hunger, as they work in brutal and cruel conditions-she realises she must act. If she can save just one life, she knows she has to. Because the truth is that Margarete resembles the prisoners in the camp in ways she daren't admit. And on the other side of the fence, she has seen a face that is achingly familiar..." -- Provided by publisher. -- Some violence and some strong language.
