Germany 1944, the war rages on across Europe and Margarete Rosenbaum is still hiding from the Nazis.  She continues to risk her life for what she knows is right.  Stefan is a resistance fighter that helps Margarete carry out her missions. Margarete inherited land and she is trying to free the Jewish people that have been sent to work on her land.  She risks her life every day to accomplish her mission and she knows that she can’t succeed without the help of Stefan.  But when she is compromised, she is sent to Auschwitz.  Her entire life is turned upside down when she is held on the other side of the wired fence.  Will she ever be free and will she ever see Stefan again?

This is such a touching story of love, hope and courage.  As Margarete and  Stefan do everything they possibly can to help the Jewish people, they know that they have to risk everything for the people that can’t help themselves.  This story is one with great emotion, and will have you reaching for the tissues.  This is a heartbreaking, gripping and rapid page turning book.  The well developed characters are ones that you will surely find yourself cheering them on.   I have enjoyed this series so much.  Each book can be read as a stand-alone novel, but is so wonderful as a complete series.  I highly recommend it.

Thank you Marion Kummerow for such a phenomenal story.  I really enjoyed this series and am sad that it has come to an end.  This is one that I will remember for a while.

1944, Germany: The war is still raging, as a young woman named Margarete hides from the Nazis in plain sight. With each day that passes, she takes more risks. But will one of those risks ultimately take her to the most evil place on earth?

After a bombing led to her identity being mistaken, 
Margarete Rosenbaum has been living disguised as one of the Nazis themselves, for almost the entire war.

But secretly—aided by 
Stefan, a resistance fighter she’s becoming impossibly drawn to—she is trying to liberate the Jewish workers sent to work on the land she’s inherited, and to sabotage the work of the factory she’s meant to be in charge of.

She knows that every day she is risking her life. But she also knows what she has to do. Because it could be her on the other side of the barbed wire fence. And for every person she saves from the Nazis, it’s worth it.

Until she is discovered. And to protect the people she had been helping, she knows she must accept her fate. Even when they send her to the very place she’s hoped to save her prisoners from: Auschwitz… Where no one comes out alive. As the war moves towards its brutal end, will she survive to see Stefan again?


Marion Kummerow is a USA Today Bestselling author of historical fiction.

She was born and raised in Germany, before she set out to “discover the world” and lived in various countries. After many years abroad she returned to Germany and settled down in Munich where she’s now living with her husband and two children.

After dipping her toes with non-fiction books, she finally tackled the project dear to her heart. UNRELENTING is the story about her grandparents, who belonged to the German resistance and fought against the Nazi regime. It’s a book about resilience, love and the courage to stand up and do the right thing. Since then she has started writing the War Girl Series. Intended as a trilogy, she grew so fond of the characters that she’s now plotting book 12 in the series.
