This standalone companion to Don't Tell the Nazis explores the bonds of friendship and family against the perilous backdrop of war.

In the grip of WWII, Maria comes to understand that her occupied Ukrainian town is no longer safe for her dear friend Nathan, because he is Jewish. Maria chooses to flee with him – into the heart of the Reich in Austria. They start working on a farm there with other foreign workers, hoping that they can escape the dangers behind them by hiding in plain sight.

However, they are not so lucky and danger still follows. Maria and Nathan realize they will have to fight, together, to escape Hitler’s web. But what if they should become separated? Could they bear the consequences?
