"Jenni L. Walsh is a great storyteller! This is an historical fiction novel telling us the story of the White Rose Rebellion in Germany during WWII. The book centers on a German family where each family member needs to decide whether to aid the resistance or not. It is suspenseful, inspiring and powerful and I just loved the characters.   A MUST READ - you will not be able to put this book down!
- Kathy Morrison
