"If you read the Author's note this recommendation may be only a tease and not necessary! After completing this historical novel, I keep recalling the quote..."If you don't know history you are doomed to repeat it." WWII...Nazi high ranking soldiers who find themselves mentally challenged/who are at the end of their rope/who are avoiding service or even darker...who are out to enrich their purse, find themselves in a mental ward at a Nazi hospital. "Drop" in two English pilots who do know who/where/what they need to do to return to England! Absolutely WONDERFUL... this book will stay with you... bother you and make you ask questions!"

"This is not and easy book/story to read! Parents want the very best for their child/children, but when there isn't a choice about what those options really are... what do the parents do?

Perhaps they have been denying more about their daughter's life than they want to admit. If you liked the book "Defending Jacob", you will find this a great companion read."
