Would you risk your life to save your enemy? Prison guard Ursula Hermann does. A prisoner escapes. She looks the other way. Ursula has always lived the law, never broken the rules in her life. That is until the day she finds escapee British airman Tom Westlake and does nothing to stop him. But in Berlin 1943 compassion is a crime. Torn with guilt, Ursula battles with her decision when suddenly Tom returns, injured and pleading for her help. This is her opportunity to turn him in and redeem herself in the eyes of her country. Instead, she choses humanity over rules, and soon both of them are chased across the country, the fearsome Gestapo breathing down their necks. A tense, fast-paced historical fiction with a gut-wrenching moral dilemma – and a sweet romance – at its core. War Girl Ursula pays painstaking attention to historical detail, weaving true historic events into the story. If you're a fan of Pam Jenoff, Soraya Lane or Mark Sullivan, you'll devour this story by a USA Today Bestselling author. Get your copy now!

Was wäre, wenn man sein Leben wieder und wieder leben könnte, bis man schließlich alles perfekt gemacht hätte? Wäre man dann ein glücklicher Mensch? Ursula Todd ist eine für ihre Zeit ganz besondere Frau: unabhängig, modern, realistisch. Mit Humor begegnet sie nicht nur ihrer skurrilen Familie, sondern auch den seltsamen Ereignissen in ihrem Leben. Wie jeder erlebt sie Situationen, in denen sie sich fragt: Was wäre, wenn? Was wäre geschehen, wenn sich ihre Teenagerliebe erfüllt hätte? Was wäre geschehen, wenn sie studiert hätte? Oder was wäre aus ihr geworden, wenn sie nicht in England, sondern in einem anderen Land aufgewachsen wäre? Wäre ihr Leben schrecklicher oder besser verlaufen? Doch anders als anderen Menschen bleibt es für Ursula nicht bei diesen Fragen. Ihr ist es gegeben, ihr Leben immer wieder zu korrigieren und damit jeden Fehler zu beseitigen. Dennoch erlebt sie Verlust, Verrat, Krieg und Tod. Was also soll diese Gabe? Ist es überhaupt möglich, sein Leben fehlerlos zu leben?

By the late 1930s, Europe sat on the brink of a world war. As the holocaust approached, many Jewish families in Germany fled to one of the only open port available to them: Shanghai. Once called "the armpit of the world," Shanghai ultimately served as the last resort for tens of thousands of Jews desperate to escape Hitler's "Final Solution." Against this backdrop, 11-year-old Ursula Bacon and her family made the difficult 8,000-mile voyage to Shanghai, with its promise of safety. But instead of a storybook China, they found overcrowded streets teeming with peddlers, beggars, opium dens, and prostitutes. Amid these abysmal conditions, Ursula learned of her own resourcefulness and found within herself the fierce determination to survive.
