KIRKUS REVIEW

A projection into the future, with a bit of wishful thinking, one might suspect. Bertha Carrington, Amazonian, Aryan, American schoolteacher, is chaperoning a small daughter of the rich in Germany. She catches the Leader's eye, and is led, lamb to the salugher, to bear his child. His staff intervene; her pregnancy is denied, and she is supposedly deported, but actually hidden in a concentration camp. Her life and her baby's are saved by a doctor, and the baby is taken from her. She and the doctor eventually escape, to find the Leader murdered, the country in revolution. A baby -- perhaps her own -- is secured, strings are pulled through her father's prominence in the part played by the American Navy, and she and baby and doctor start for home and freedom. Make of it what you will. Good time passer.
