This riveting war story introduces us to beautiful Kate Zweig, the English widow of a German surgeon, and Claus Murphy, an exiled American with German roots - two lovers with complicated loyalties.

In 1918, Kate and her husband, Horst, are taken for spies by Russian soldiers and forced to flee their field hospital on the eastern front, barely escaping with their lives. Years later, in London during the Nazis' V-1 reign of terror, Claus spends his days making propaganda films and his nights as a British spy, worn down by the war and his own many secrets. When Claus meets the intriguing Kate, he finds himself powerfully drawn to her - even after evidence surfaces that she might not be exactly who she seems. As the war hurtles to a violent end, Claus must decide where his own loyalties lie, whether he can make a difference in the war - and what might be gained by taking a leap of faith with Kate.

Echoing Pat Barker's spare power and the sweep of Sebastian Faulks's historical sagas, The German Woman takes us inside the world wars that defined the 20th century and the hidden histories of two unforgettable characters whose love story will haunt readers' hearts and minds.

    " Hated it, will not finish it. "

    " Not exactly light and fluffy summer reading, but hey, it was about WWII, what did I expect?! Well researched, especially the descriptions of London during the intense Nazi bombings before the Normandy invasion. This isn't a fun read, and if you like a standard Hollywood happy ending, you'd best pass this one by. If, however, you are interested in historical fiction and like a bit of realism, then you won't be disappointed. "

    " Great beginning, beautiful language but not sure what happened at the end. Someone else read it and explain it to me. "

    " A story which takes us from WWI through the end of WWII through the life of an English woman who ends up living in Germany between the wars. Good, though not fabulous. "
