Blurb

A story of love in times of darkness, of all kinds of love. This is the story of Ivy and her loved ones before the Second World War in Nazi Germany. They say history was written by the victors, but what about the history of the defeated? See the unseen side of history, through the Germans' eyes. Ivy is a conflicted girl who, along with those around her, goes through one of the darkest periods of human history. To survive, they must make the ultimate sacrifices for love, family, friendship, acceptance, war, safety, and happiness. This is the first book, the beginning. They came from darkness.

Prologue

“I’m excited, a little anxious maybe, but only because this will be my first time in real combat,” Uli told her.

“Aren’t you scared? I would be a little scared,” Ivy frowned.

“Scared? Ivy, I’m a man, I don’t fear anything, not even death,” he smiled.

“You don’t fear dying? Really?” she incredulously asked, crossing her arms.

“Well, I don’t really know, I’ve never been in a situation where... why are we talking about death? I’m not going to die, Ivy. I’m going to live, and before you know it I’ll be back here with you,” he kissed her.

“Uli, I’m so proud of you, I love you,” she kissed him back.

“And I love you. I must go now,” he put on his hat.

“Be careful and... kill anyone who threatens to kill you. Kill them all,” Ivy told him.
