A Child for the Reich by Andie Newton

Happy Friday! As many of you know I love historical fiction, especially WWII historical fiction. Today’s book is about WWII and what the Germans did to insure the Aryan race was preserved. This is a sad book but an important one because it is based on true events. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for including me on this blog tour.

From the USA Today bestselling author comes a gripping new emotional WW2 historical novel. Inspired by a true story!

'A moving story of a mother's love battling against the determination of the Reich to create a pure Aryan race…A recommended read' Glynis Peters

'An intensely moving, brilliantly researched novel about love, loss, and the lengths a mother will go to for her child…utterly compelling' Deborah Carr

Rumours of the Nazis coming for Czech children swept through the villages like a breeze through the trees, and the story was always the same…

They wanted our children to raise as their own

Since her husband, Josef, joined the Czech resistance three years ago, Anna Dankova has done everything possible to keep her daughter, Ema, safe. But when blonde haired, blue-eyed Ema is ripped from her mother’s arms in the local marketplace by the dreaded Brown Sisters, nurses who were dedicated to Hitler’s cause, Anna is forced to go to new extremes to take back what the Nazis have stolen from her.

Going undercover as a devoted German subject eager to prove her worth to the Reich, the former actress takes on a role of a lifetime to find and save her daughter. But getting close to Ema is one thing. Convincing her that the Germans are lying when they claim Anna stole her from her true parents is another…


There are no bounds to a mothers love. Anna and her sister and mother are afraid of the Germans. The Germans will take their children. This is Anna’s story of her love for her daughter and how far she is willing to go to protect her and other children. This is a story of two half’s. The first half is Anna and her family and what they do to protect themselves. The second half of about Anna and her determination to get her daughter back. I loved this story. It kept surprising me. Anna is a very strong character who wants to help everyone. She is very smart. I really enjoyed this book and read it in one day because I could not put it down!
