About the Book
Munich, 1938. Evelyn Brand is an American foreign correspondent as determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated profession as she is to expose the growing tyranny in Nazi Germany. To do so, she must walk a thin line. If she offends the government, she could be expelled from the country–or worse. If she fails to truthfully report on major stories, she’ll never be able to give a voice to the oppressed–and wake up the folks back home.
In another part of the city, American graduate student Peter Lang is working on his PhD in German. Disillusioned with the chaos in the world due to the Great Depression, he is impressed with the prosperity and order of German society. But when the brutality of the regime hits close, he discovers a far better way to use his contacts within the Nazi party–to feed information to the shrewd reporter he can’t get off his mind.
This electric standalone novel from fan-favorite Sarah Sundin puts you right at the intersection of pulse-pounding suspense and heart-stopping romance.
My Thoughts on When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin
Ever read a book that just… envelopes you? Sarah Sundin’s newest book When Twilight Breaks immersed me in the tensions of early WWII via Munich, Germany. Between the daring journalist entranced with feminism Evelyn and Peter an American graduate student working on his Ph.D. a whole world of espionage, intrigue, and rivalry took me to a world so different from mine. I loved Sarah Sundin’s descriptive language and her easy conversational banter between characters, it was a wonderful experience.
This book is so good from beginning to end that I really do not want to give away more than you could read off the back cover synopsis. So, I will just tell you that if you like historical fiction, you will LOVE this story! 5 out of 5 stars from me!
