Only the Brave
COURAGE. COMPASSION. SURVIVAL. LOVE.
Only the Brave is a heart-wrenching story of courage and hope set in wartime Berlin, from the billion-copy bestseller Danielle Steel.
In 1930s Berlin, dark days dawn under Hitler’s Third Reich. For nineteen-year-old Sophia Alexander, life will never be the same. The daughter of a respected doctor, Sophia has always believed that her destiny is to look after others, and as the persecution of Jewish families begins, she joins a group of dissidents who are committed to helping them to safety.
As war is declared, Sophia answers her religious calling and enters a convent, where she continues to fight bravely against the Nazi regime. That is until the fateful day she is arrested and taken to Ravensbrück concentration camp, where her only hope of survival is to escape and attempt the dangerous journey to the border.
Sophia’s situation is further complicated when she meets a US airman, shot down nearby. As she nurses him back to health, they grow close, but she is still resolute that her destiny is with the Church.
As Sophia looks for a sign of which path to follow, will she have the strength to question what she has committed her whole life to?
