  • About

    Berlin 1935…

    When love and hope die, all that is left is the truth.

    When her best friend, Rachel, is killed Sabine is sure her brother Otto will soon find the murderer. A policeman inside the Regime, Otto has difficulty hiding his animosity to the Nazis, but even he is worried about Sabine’s relationship with Rachel’s brother, Ari, especially when Rachel’s death brings them closer together. But it’s a dangerous time to be a young German woman in love with a Jewish man, even more so when there’s a serial killer at large in Berlin, a killer who leaves no clues and who doesn’t care whether his victims are Aryans or Jews.

    As war clouds gather, life in Berlin becomes even more precarious, the police are no closer to finding the killer and Ari and his parents refuse to leave until they know why Rachel was murdered. Sabine continues to ignore Otto and her parents’ concerns but events are about to force her into making a heartbreaking choice, one that will haunt not just her but everyone around her.

    Betrayed is an intriguing tale of murder, love, danger, truth and – of course – betrayal, set in war-torn Berlin and post-war Jerusalem.

    Praise for Betrayed:

    Love and survival are not always equal bed partners

    Love and survival are not always equal bed partners

    A really good read. Covers a gamut of emotions and social secrets. Delves into the torment experienced by non-Jew German families with Jewish friends living with the ever-present dominance of Nazi conformity. How the Hitler Youth transformed children into cold-blooded killers. But, it is also about love and strength of heart. Being driven by hope and succumbing to despair. A roller-coaster ride. Enjoy.

    Excellent read

    Excellent read

    I have recently read 10 of Carole’s books, in the war series trilogies. I found at the start of the first one they were a wee bit difficult to keep up with because they have a short chapter for each character. Once I got into it I was hooked. excellent read for anyone who is interested in the plight of Jews, prisoners of war, with a love story, and some very elicit sex scenes, an violence.

    I enjoyed this book. It tells of the the tangled lives of 2 Berlin families in the 40s and 50s with misunderstandings and deceptions. The story babbled along and is an interesting read.
