Another facet of war-time Germany in a very interesting story of an English girl who has been brought home as bride, just as the war breaks out -- and who goes through years of frustrated emotions, while she bears a German child, and tries to be fair to both loyalties. The aftermath of the peace conference is almost worse than the war. And her visit to England, frowned upon as pro-German is worst of all. The years drag on. She adjusts herself. And then, on the rock that is Hitler, she crashes her frail bark....First rate material, almost spoiled by careless editing and hasty writing. -- Gibbs has established a special following for his German background material -- see list for Cross of Peace, etc.
