Her Hidden Life

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
A forbidden love. A deadly secret.

In early 1943, Magda Ritter's parents send her to relatives in Bavaria, hoping to keep her safe from the Allied bombs. Young German women are expected to do their duty - working for the Reich or marrying to produce strong, healthy children.

After an interview with the civil service, Magda is assigned to the Berghof, Hitler's mountain retreat. Only after weeks of training does she learn her assignment: she will be one of several young women tasting the Fuhrer's food, offering herself in sacrifice to keep him from being poisoned.

Perched high in the Bavarian Alps, the Berghof seems worlds away from the realities of battle. Though terrified at first, Magda gradually becomes used to her dangerous occupation - though she knows better than to voice her misgivings about the war.

But her love for a conspirator within the SS, and her growing awareness of the Reich's atrocities, draw Magda into a plot that will test her wits and loyalty in a quest for safety, freedom and ultimately, vengeance....

Vividly written and ambitious in scope, Her Hidden Life examines the harrowing moral dilemmas of war in an emotional story filled with acts of extraordinary courage.
