"Jenoff's breathtaking debut chronicles the life of a young Jewish bride during the Nazi occupation of Krakow... This is historical romance at its finest." - Publishers Weekly, starred.

"Gripping, intense, passionate. WWII as we've never seen it before. A must read!" - amazon.com editors.

Married only three weeks when Nazi tanks thunder into Poland, 19-year-old Emma Bau is left in a decrepit Jewish ghetto when her husband is forced to hide. When she's smuggled out and sent to live with Jacob's Catholic cousin, Emma pretends to be a gentile. Emma's situation is complicated by her introduction to Kommandant Richwalder, a Nazi official who hires her. Urged by the resistance to use her position to get details of the occupation, Emma compromises her safety and marriage vows to help the cause. And as the atrocities of war intensify, so does Emma's relationship with the Kommandant, building to a climax that risks her life, and the lives of those she loves.
