Germany, 1944. Taken from the camps to serve the Führer himself, Anke Hoff is assigned as midwife to one of Hitler’s inner circle. If she refuses, her family will die.

Torn between her duty as a caregiver and her hatred for the Nazi regime, Anke is swept into a life unlike anything she’s ever known – and she discovers that many of those at the Berghof are just as trapped as she is. And soon, she’s falling for a man who will make her world more complicated still…

Before long, the couple is faced with an impossible choice – and the consequences could be deadly. Can their forbidden love survive the horrors of war? And, more importantly, will they?

Mandy Robotham’s highly awaited next book, The Secret Messenger, is out now.

    The author immediately engages the listener into a dramatic and movemented Germany in the middle of the roaring war. Even though the story is a fictional one, the cruelty of the Reich. and the regime are very real. A book giving us all a lot of things for thought about difficult choices that people had to face during war times. Discovering step by step the life of the protagonists,we start understanding better the impasse they were in. The text leads us to think about the guilt, responsibility underlining that it's not always easy to decide what is wrong or good.

    Horrifying to realise once again the atrocities of the camps, seen from an entirely new perspective which was really interesting. I enjoyed the book but at times the narration made it feel repetitive with the same intonation for each distressed woman! Also quite odd to hear German women’s dialogue in a broad northern English accent!
