Safe Harbor by Gerhardt Roberts


Safety is a foreign word, danger is everywhere and love is a luxury they can’t afford...

By Gerhardt Roberts

In World War II Berlin, Jews such as Erich Reinhold, who can pass for Aryan, and his sweetheart, Nessa Baumgartner, go underground. In a city where Jewish life is being snuffed out, they soon find themselves in a world of false identification papers and forged ration cards, risking their lives to help others escape to freedom. Safety is a foreign word, danger is everywhere and love is a luxury they can’t afford. But maybe, in spite of danger and separation, they will find their safe harbor.

R.F. Rabe (Gerhardt Roberts) grew up in Germany and has been a Professor of German for the past 35 years at various colleges and universities. In the 1970’s he served in the Army Security Agency as a German linguist and intelligence analyst. His passion is all things German: the language, the culture and the history.

My take: I really like Historical Fiction and this book was a great example of how good a historical fiction could be. I liked the story and felt like I knew what it was like to be in the underground during WW11. Since the author teaches German and comes from Germany he probably has a great knowledge of eveything that has to do GErmany including the good,bad and the ugly. If you like historical fiction I think you would enjoy this book. I received a review copy of this book from Pump Up Your Book and was not required to write a positive review.
