Remember, Petra. The first country Hitler invaded was ours.

World War II rages, but life must go on. For Petra Heinrich, this means taking charge of what’s left of her family. With her father and older brothers away fighting for their country, she is entrusted with the upkeep of their farm in the sleepy German village. During the day, she struggles with daily chores. At night, she hides in the hayloft while bombs drop all around the farm.

Petra grew up in a devout Christian home, but she has long since hardened her heart to God. However, when she agrees to hide a Jew, Petra’s heart slowly softens.

As she starts to trust that things might be improving, the family receives devastating news. Grief-stricken and vulnerable, Petra’s courage is tested beyond what she can bear.

Things can’t possibly get worse. Or can they?

Her destiny is determined by her family.
Her dreams are overshadowed by her duty.

Six years ago, Fatima al-Fatah was married off to a man old enough to be her father. At first, she had hoped to find love and belonging in her husband’s established household. The reality has turned out to be much more grim. Jealous and bitter, her husband’s other three wives despise and constantly berate her. Fatima begins to believe in her worthlessness, as she has been unable to deliver the one thing her husband desperately desires. Things quickly go from bad to worse in the span of a night, leaving her struggling to survive.

When Dr. Zahir Sayeed failed to protect Fatima six years ago, he ran away in shame, never intending to return. He has only come back to his birthplace out of an obligation to his family. Little do they know, he carries a secret that could send him to prison, or worse. When an accident brings Fatima back into his life, he finds himself drawn to her spirit and courage–an attraction that can only bring trouble. As he helps Fatima discover her true worth, he soon realizes that she is on the verge of uncovering a dangerous secret herself . . .

    I hadn’t planned on her suddenly moving lol. But she decided that since we were sorta talking about her, she needed to make an appearance lol. She’s quite the personality.
