About the Book
Munich, 1938. Evelyn Brand is an American foreign correspondent as determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated profession as she is to expose the growing tyranny in Nazi Germany. To do so, she must walk a thin line. If she offends the government, she could be expelled from the country–or worse. If she fails to truthfully report on major stories, she’ll never be able to give a voice to the oppressed–and wake up the folks back home.
In another part of the city, American graduate student Peter Lang is working on his PhD in German. Disillusioned with the chaos in the world due to the Great Depression, he is impressed with the prosperity and order of German society. But when the brutality of the regime hits close, he discovers a far better way to use his contacts within the Nazi party–to feed information to the shrewd reporter he can’t get off his mind.
This electric standalone novel from fan-favorite Sarah Sundin puts you right at the intersection of pulse-pounding suspense and heart-stopping romance.
In My Opinion
Sarah Sundin is a must-read author when it comes to World War II fiction. In When Twilight Breaks, readers follow a spunky American correspondent through Munich at the onset of the war.
Evelyn is an enigma in a field dominated by men and fights to prove herself equal. When she meets Peter, a professor teaching German students American English, the kindling of attraction ignites. But Peter has his own opinions about the state of German, and Evelyn isn’t afraid to challenge them.
Sundin gives attention to detail about the attitude of many Americans before the war as well as the treatment of those deemed less than. As Peter discovers not all is as idyllic as he first believed and Evelyn continues to tell the truth of the state of Germany, both put their lives on the line.
The romance is lighter in When Twilight Breaks than some of Sundin’s previous books, but the foundation of friendship formed between Evelyn and Peter gives readers the knowledge theirs is a love that will last. There is also a good amount of suspense in this book that kept me engaged until the end.
