"In Times of Rain and War"
by Camron Wright
During World War II, an American soldier encounters a German woman living a secret life in bomb-blighted London. In September of 1940, the Blitz had begun. Like other British civilians, Audrey Stocking is determined to survive, except she isn't from England. She is a German--a young Jewish woman with a fake passport and a nearly-perfect British accent, trying her best to blend into the city. Her days are kept busy working for the Woman's Voluntary Services to evacuate British children into the countryside, saving them from nightly bombings over London.
