White Rose, Black Forest

In the shadows of World War II, trust becomes the greatest risk of all for two strangers.December 1943. In the years before the rise of Hitler, the Gerber familys summer cottage was filled with laughter. Now, as deep drifts of snow blanket the Black Forest, German dissenter Franka Gerber is alone and hopeless. Fervor and brutality have swept through her homeland, taking away both her father and her brother and leaving her with no reason to live.That is, until she discovers an unconscious airman lying in the snow wearing a Luftwaffe uniform, his parachute flapping in the wind. Unwilling to let him die, Franka takes him to her familys isolated cabin despite her hatred for the regime he represents. But when it turns out that he is not who he seems, Franka begins a race against time to unravel the mystery of the airmans true identity. Their tenuous bond becomes as inseparable as it is dangerous. Hunted by the Gestapo, can they trust each other enough to join forces on a mission that could change the face of the war and their own lives forever?...

White Rose, Black Forest Reviews

  • Xavier (CharlesXplosion)

    Another bland/generic WW2 narrative.

    White Rose, Black Forest

    Wow! Loved this WWII book so much. Franka, a German Nurse, and John, an Allied Spy, had quite the adventure. I went with my husband on a Viking Rhine River Cruise last June and this story ends up in the Black Forest and Basel Switzerland which we were lucky to experience on our trip.

    DNF 51%. This book started with a great bang and I was so excited to be reading it. Then it just started to read like a text book, where the writing seemed almost to be conveying facts with such little emotion that I have been bored the last 30%. I'm sad, but I'm moving on.

    Historical fiction heavy on the fiction and light on the facts (it seems like the only things that actually happened was the rise and fall of the White Rose resistance group). The book is at it's best when it focuses on life in Germany under the Nazis. My favorites parts were the flashbacks to the White Rose. I also liked the depiction of the ordinary Germans turned informants. It added a nice sense of paranoia.

    I wasn't so fond of the main characters, and especially not their love story. They se

    The story of a German woman with anti-Nazi sentiments and and the American spy posing as a German soldier that she finds wounded in the snow and cares for in her secluded cabin. Would make a decent movie. The story moves along pretty well and the settings and characters are rounded out pretty well, but the dialogue is stilted and the romance contrived.

  • Jacque

    The story line of the book was great, very engaging. There were parts of the book that were repetitive, a sentence would state something and a few lines later it said almost exactly the same thing.

  • Joy D

    Historical fiction about rescue of an airman by a German resistor. It takes place mostly within Germany’s Black Forest region in 1943-1944. This book was a mixed bag for me. While I found elements to enjoy, such as basing it around resistors in Nazi Germany, there were quite a few inconsistencies in the plot, and I found it a bit contrived. This book purports to be “based on a true story;” however, upon further research, it appears to be mostly fiction. The White Rose organization existed, but t ...more

    A fascinating story and an amazing insight into the complexity of what was happening in Germany during WWII. An important story to tell at anytime but maybe more so now. This is definitely worth the read and something that will stick with me in my mind for a long time. This book was my KindleFirst pick of the month and I recommend you pick this one up to read. So good!
