Sintesi dell'editore

A riveting and emotionally gripping novel of an American soldier working as a spy in Soviet-occupied East Germany and a West German woman secretly helping her countrymen escape from behind the Berlin Wall

In the summer of 1961, a wall of barbed wire goes up quickly in the dead of night, officially dividing Berlin. Luisa Voigt lives in West Berlin, but her grandmother lives across the border and is now trapped inside the newly isolated communist country of East Germany. Desperate to rescue her grandmother and aware of the many others whose families have been divided, Luisa joins a secret spy network, risking her life to help bring others through a makeshift underground tunnel to West Germany. Their work is dangerous, and not everyone will successfully escape or live to see freedom.

Bob Inama was an outstanding university student with plans to attend law school when he is drafted into the US Army. Stationed in West Germany, he is glad to be fluent in German, especially after meeting Luisa Voigt at a church social. As they spend time together, they form a close connection. But when Bob receives classified orders to leave for undercover work immediately, he does not get the chance to say good-bye.

With a fake identity, Bob’s special assignment is to be a spy embedded in East Germany. His undercover job will give him access to government sites to map out strategic military targets. But Soviet and East German spies, the secret police, and Stasi informants are everywhere, and eventually Bob is caught and sent to a brutal East German prison. Interrogated and tortured daily, Bob clings to any hope he can find - from the sunlight that marches across the wall of his prison, to the one guard who secretly treats him with kindness, to the thought of one day seeing Luisa again.

Author Heather B. Moore masterfully alternates the stories of Bob and Luisa, capturing the human drama unique to Cold War Germany as well as the courage and the resilience of the human spirit.

OMG what a great Book!

When I downloaded this free book from the Plus Catalog I didn’t expect it to be much different than other good Post WW2 Stories, BUT OMG, this was a GREAT BOOK! The story and characters drew me in and I couldn’t stop listening. This biography is a whole different look at the Cold War told from a man who experienced it first hand. A story of true perseverance, strength, and attitude of gratitude. Don’t miss this book, it’s an all around 5 star.

Moving Story

I encountered a YouTube interview with Bob Inama and just had to read this book. It was well worth it. I loved the story. It was a great review of a portion of the cold war history. Bob was amazing! What an honest, hopeful, hero of a man.

Wow.

Found myself on multiple occasions sitting in my car long after the chapter had finished and the book put on pause, just contemplating The impossible choices these deep and beautiful characters were faced with.

An introspective book, the main characters will be a personal inspiration to get me through times of difficulty for years.

Thank you for writing this powerful book. I had a very hard time of putting it down. The way that you described somethings I could almost picture the scene in front of me. Such an amazing book.

This book touched my soul!

It is a deeply emotional story of an American hero and humanitarian. The author captured these true life events beautifully and I will not forget the example of true brotherly love

Interesting story about the Cold War

I love historical novels and this was free. I enjoyed the end very much. I will admit I wasn’t very compelled to finish the book at the beginning, but something told me to finish it. The reward was to get insight to a soldier’s experience and their after military life. I have so much admiration and respect for our military and this story is a great depiction of one soldier’s journey. Thank you for writing this novel.

Amazing retelling of a heartwarming story

This book is so well written and tells a hard and beautiful story. Bob inama faced so much as his time as a spy. This book does an amazing job of capturing his love, and faith throughout his difficult journey. My heart breaks for all that occurred during the cold War, and this story does well to share the intensity, uncertainty, and terrifying times that the world faced. May we all strive to have the faith, love and compassion of these characters.

deeply moving

the narration of this book was so important to feeling the emotions created by the events on this man's life. nuance. accent, emphasis and tone combined to make this book more memorable than if I had read it hearing my own voice. the written word would not have been enough to draw out the visceral responses I felt. the story was well written and compelling; I couldn't stop or pause without knowing when I could resume listening. thank you for a rich and meaningful experience.

Profound yet inspirational

A well written and well narrated account of an amazing and seemingly humble person who experienced and suffered so much. The account is told in a captivating way with a story line that I could not put down. It has made me reflect much on all that people were challenged by during this very difficult period of history. Thank you for a touching yet excellent audio book.
