Berlin, Germany 1932. In a time of political unrest and strife, one man finds the courage to fight back... Dr. Wilhelm "Q" Quedlin, chemical engineer and inventor, lives for his science. A woman is not in his plans—nor is it to be accused of industrial espionage. But things get worse from there. Watching Hitler's rise to power spurns his desire to avoid yet another war that will completely destroy his beloved country. Q makes the conscious decision to fight against what he knows is wrong, even if working against the Nazis could mean certain death for him— and anyone he loves. Hilde Dremmer has vowed to never love again. But after encountering Q, she wants to give love a second chance. When Q discloses his resistance plan, it’s up to Hilde to choose between her protected life without him or the constant threat of torture if she supports him in his fight against injustice. She has witnessed enough of the Nazi government's violent acts to be appalled by the new political power, but will this be enough for an ordinary girl to do the extraordinary and stand beside the man she loves in a time of total desolation? This World War II spy story is based on the true events of one couple's struggle for happiness while battling a war against their own leaders. This book is a must-read for everyone wondering how an entire nation could slide from democracy to totalitarian dictatorship ultimately killing millions of "undesirables" whose only crime was having a different faith, skin color or political opinion.

Florida

Author: Lauren Groff
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 9780698405141
Release Date: 2018-06-05
Genre: Fiction

New York Times bestseller Lauren Groff returns with an electric collection of stories as propulsive and consuming as her novel Fates and Furies. Lauren Groff is one of the most important authors writing today, and Florida -- her first new book since her "clear the ground triumph"* Fates and Furies -- is an electrifying, expanding read. Over a decade ago, Groff moved to her adopted home state of Florida. The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida -- its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind -- becomes its gravitational center. Storms, snakes, and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional, and psychological nature. In "The Midnight Zone," a woman finds herself injured and isolated in a confined space with her children, danger literally prowling outside the door, and must confront what it is she is really afraid of. "Above and Below" follows a young homeless woman as she moves from one Florida beach town to another, finding increasingly precarious ways to survive. And "Yport" brilliantly explores the alternating fulfillment and anxiety of modern marriage and motherhood, all the more apparent when removed from routine American life. Groff's evocative storytelling and knife-sharp intelligence first transport the reader, then jolt us alert with a crackle of wit, a wave of sadness, a flash of cruelty, as she writes about loneliness, rage, family, and the passage of time. With shocking accuracy and effect, Groff pinpoints the moments and decisions and connections behind human pleasure and pain, hope and despair, love and fury -- the moments that make us alive. Vigorous, startling, precise, and moving, Florida is a magnificent achievement. (*Washington Post)
