After losing her beloved husband and daughter and surviving Hitler's Sobibor death camp, Quaker widow Anja Steinberg dedicates her life to helping other and keeping her son safe. As a member of the resistance, she helps displaced Allied airmen get back to their units in England. The journey is rigorous and filled with danger and there is no time for romance. Anja knows that Mikel, her fellow resistance worker, loves her. He would make a good husband and father for her son, but she doesn't share his feelings. Is friendship enough? Then American Peter Trent parachutes into her life. She must face facts--her heart did not die with her late husband and true love could be hers again. But marrying Mike may be the only way she can save Peter.
