When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin Reviewed


About the book:

Title: When Twilight Breaks

Author: Sarah Sundin

Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance

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

I have enjoyed Sarah Sundin's writing for many years and this book is her best book to date!

She takes you right into Germany with Evelyn Brand an American Journalist, and Peter Lang an American working on his thesis in German. Through their eyes we experience Kristallnacht -- the night of broken glass -- and many other atrocities the Jewish people endured.

Plot twists, suspense, and danger lurking around every corner made it difficult to put this book down. 

I walked away knowing more about what went on in Germany to both Americans and the Jewish people; which is always what I hope for when I read an historical novel.
