Waiting on Wednesday: Prisoner of Night and Fog


Are you in the mood for some historical fiction?! Well, I am which is why today’s Waiting on Wednesday features Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman.

In 1930s Munich, danger lurks behind dark corners, and secrets are buried deep within the city. But Priosner of Night and Fog by Anne BlankmanGretchen Müller, who grew up in the National Socialist Party under the wing of her “uncle” Dolf, has been shielded from that side of society ever since her father traded his life for Dolf’s, and Gretchen is his favorite, his pet. Uncle Dolf is none other than Adolf Hitler. And Gretchen follows his every command.

Until she meets a fearless and handsome young Jewish reporter named Daniel Cohen. Gretchen should despise Daniel, yet she can’t stop herself from listening to his story: that her father, the adored Nazi martyr, was actually murdered by an unknown comrade. She also can’t help the fierce attraction brewing between them, despite everything she’s been taught to believe about Jews. As Gretchen investigates the very people she’s always considered friends, she must decide where her loyalties lie. Will she choose the safety of her former life as a Nazi darling, or will she dare to dig up the truth—even if it could get her and Daniel killed? From debut author Anne Blankman comes this harrowing and evocative story about an ordinary girl faced with the extraordinary decision to give up everything she’s ever believed . . . and to trust her own heart instead.

Aren’t you intrigued?! I mean the whole idea of your uncle being Hitler…THE Hitler is crazy. I’ve always wondered about those related to Hitler and what they thought of his choices and how they must have felt after his demise. Prisoner of Night and Fog will probably be an intense read, but we have to wait until April 22 to get our hands on it.
