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.

I was never confused about the characters or their roles in the story which can happen sometimes with so many lead. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to r...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...
