"Berlin, 1933. Following the success of her debut novel, American writer Althea James receives an invitation from Joseph Goebbels himself to participate in a cultural exchange program in Germany. To a girl from a small town in Maine, Berlin seems sparklingly cosmopolitan, blossoming in the midst of a great change with its charismatic new chancellor at the helm. When Althea meets a beautiful woman who promises to show her the real Berlin, she's drawn into a group of resisters who make her question everything ... Paris, 1936. She may have escaped Berlin for Paris, but Hannah Brecht discovers the City of Light is no refuge from the anti-Semitism and Nazi sympathizers she thought she'd left behind. Heartbroken and tormented by the role she played in the betrayal that destroyed her family, Hannah throws herself into her work at the German Library of Burned Books ... New York, 1944. Since her husband, Edward, was killed fighting the Nazis, Vivian Childs has been waging her own war: preventing a powerful senator's attempts to censor the Armed Services Editions, portable paperbacks that are shipped by the millions to soldiers overseas ... As Viv unknowingly brings her censorship fight crashing into the secrets of the recent past, the fates of these three women will converge, changing all of them forever."--Dust jacket flap.
