One knock at the door, and Stefania has a choice to make...
It is 1943, and for four years, sixteen-year-old Stefania has been working for the Diamant family in their grocery store in Przemysl, Poland, singing her way into their lives and hearts. She has even made a promise to one of their sons, Izio -- a betrothal they must keep secret since she is Catholic and the Diamants are Jewish.
But everything changes when the German army invades Przemysl. The Diamants are forced into the ghetto, and Stefania is alone in an occupied city, the only one left to care for Helena, her six-year-old sister. And then comes the knock at the door. Izio's brother Max has jumped from the train headed to a death camp. Stefania and Helena make the extraordinary decision to hide Max, and eventually twelve more Jews. Then they must wait, every day, for the next knock at the door, the one that will mean death. When the knock finally comes, it is two Nazi officers, requisitioning Stefania's house for the German army.
With two Nazis below, thirteen hidden Jews above, and a little sister by her side, Stefania has one more excruciating choice to make.

In 1946, Eva leaves behind the rubble of Berlin for the streets of New York City, stepping from the fiery aftermath of one war into another, far colder one, where power is more important than principles, and lies are more plentiful than the truth.

Both the Americans and the Soviets want Bluebird, and it is something that neither should ever be allowed to possess.
But Eva hasn't come to America for secrets or power. She hasn't even come for a new life. She has come to America for one thing: justice. And the Nazi that has escaped its net.

A dramatic story of duplicity and resistance, betrayal and loyalty, set against the backdrop of World War II, by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Light in Hidden Places.
Isa de Smit grew up in the glittering, color-filled world of art in her eccentric father’s small gallery, mingling with artists and collectors, until the Nazis invaded her city of Amsterdam. With her beloved city firmly in their grip, the Nazis have removed everyone and everything Isa holds dear; her best friend, Truus, and her boyfriend, Willem, have fled to join the shadowy Dutch resistance; and masterpiece by masterpiece, the Nazis are buying and stealing her country’s heritage, feeding the Third Reich’s ravenous appetite for culture and art.
With the gallery’s artwork confiscated by the Nazis and the taxes due, Isa decides to sell her first fake--a Rembrandt copy drawn years ago by her father--and is shocked to learn that the buyer is the Fuhrer himself. Then on the way to the auction, she discovers that Truus and Willem are smuggling Jewish babies out of Amsterdam into hiding.
The sale of the Rembrandt goes without a hitch, despite the sharp eye of the young German soldier registering the art. For Isa, selling a forgery to the Nazis feels less like a crime and more like an act of vengeance on behalf of her country.
But Truus and Willem cannot save more children without money. A lot of money. And Isa thinks she knows how to get it. If she can create one more forgery, a copy of an exquisite Vermeer masterpiece, she is certain that the Nazis will pay a fortune to own it.
Isa is up against a ticking clock, as the Nazis plan to deport the last of Amsterdam's Jews to the concentration camps in just a few days’ time. But someone is on to Isa’s plan. With everything on the line, and stakes as high as they possibly could be, Isa wonders, will she be arrested as a forger, or outed as a collaborator, and the children shipped to their deaths?
Award-winning author Sharon Cameron weaves a gorgeously evocative thriller, simmering with twists and tension, where worth is not always seen from the surface, and a fake can be difficult to spot.
Sono passati più di diciotto mesi da quando Lane è partito da Stranwyne Keep, e nonostante il governo inglese abbia dato notizia della sua morte, Katharine non smette di aspettarlo, convinta che il giovane di cui è innamorata sia ancora vivo. Una notte, mentre la casa è sprofondata nel sonno, due uomini mascherati si introducono nella tenuta del Borgo per catturare zio Tulman, lo scienziato inventore di creazioni meccaniche così geniali e rivoluzionarie da fare invidia anche agli insospettabili. La Corona inglese, infatti, vorrebbe lo zio sotto la sua custodia, ma Katharine non può arrendersi: è arrivato il momento di partire.
Gli eventi la condurranno a Parigi, città dai mille volti e dalle mille orecchie, dove vengono intessuti piani oscuri. Katharine dovrà ricorrere a tutta la sua forza per difendersi, in una disperata ricerca dell'amore e della verità che dai sotterranei di Parigi la porterà fin nelle stanze dell'imperatore.
E anche al buio, nel posto sbagliato, nel momento sbagliato, nella lingua sbagliata, riconobbi quella voce.
Non è mai troppo tardi per avere la tua occasione. Basta portare indietro le lancette.
