Publisher's Description

Increasingly wary of her father’s genetic research, Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with him to Germany—in the summer of 1939—will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter, Amelie, deaf since birth, as a blight on his Aryan bloodline.

Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows he’s as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders from every government building in Berlin. She fears her father’s files may hold answers about Hitler’s plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems “unworthy of life.” She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she’s never known.

Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young—a driven, disarming American journalist and unlikely ally—who connects her to the resistance and to controversial theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Forced into hiding, Rachel’s every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knife’s edge, risking their lives—and asking others to do the same—for those they barely know but come to love.

Editorial Reviews

Saving Amelie is a moving portrayal of the fortitude and resilience of the human spirit. Gohlke has captured the beauty and sacrifice of those willing to help others in the depths of Nazi Germany. At times both emotional and suspenseful, this is a fantastic novel for those who love both historical fiction and human interest stories. 4 stars
In this compelling and tense novel, Christy Award-winning Gohlke (Band of Sisters, Promise Me This) tells a haunting story of the courageous few who worked tirelessly and at great risk to themselves to save people they did not know, whom they would not see again. Reminiscent of Tatiana de Rosnay’s stirring stories of human compassion and hope, this should appeal to fans of both authors as well as to historical fiction readers.

    From the back cover: SUMMER 1939

    ONE LETTER, ONE REQUEST . . .

    On a trip to Germany with her father, Rachel Kramer receives a cryptic letter with a plea for help from an estranged friend. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter Ameliedeaf since birthas a blight on his Aryan bloodline.

    . . . LEADS TO A TRUTH SO DARK . . .

    Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows hes as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders across Berlin. She fears her father, an eminent eugenics scientist, may know about Hitlers plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems unworthy of life. But when she risks searching his classified documents, she also uncovers shocking secrets about her own history and a family shes never known.

    . . . THEYLL RISK EVERYTHING TO BRING IT TO LIGHT.

    Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young a driven American journalist and unlikely allywhose connections to the resistance help Rachel and Amelie escape the city. Forced to hide in Oberammergau, the Bavarian village of the Passion Play, Rachels every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knifes edge, endangering their livesand asking others to do the samefor those they barely know but come to love.

    Almost anything set during World War II is going to be interesting. We are talking history with people and events during one of the darkest periods in human history. In Saving Amelie Cathy Gohlke gives us a thriller where Rachel and Jason are on the run for their lives across Germany trying to save the life of a little girl. Pulse pounding, nerve twisting suspense as we learn of what the Nazis are attempting and then the dramatic rescue attempt. This story is like the old movies that kept us glued to the edge of our seats so be prepared to be glued to yours. Saving Amelie is amazing, filled with wonderful characters that breathe life right off the page and who we root for to succeed. Dont start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will want to read it all the way to the end. I highly recommend this book.

    Amid a high tension political climate, a sweet, dramatic story unfolds. The suspense takes my breath away, and the interactions keep the plot strong and vibrant. I loved the character development, and the scenery and traditions of Germany that were so beautifully rendered. I have never been disappointed by this author. Cathy Gohlke knows how to capture our imagination, keep the suspense, and follow the growing faith of her characters all at the same time. There is beauty and heartbreak in this book.

    Amelie is deaf and and Hitler wants her and all those like her destroyed. Hitler only wants certain people to continue to live and that doesn't include Amelie! Her mother turns to her best friend Rachel to get Amelie out of Germany, but will Rachel risk all to help those who need it? She must turn to Jason Young for help, but it's dangerous what they're trying to do! The Nazis are after them, and it will take more courage then anyone feels that they have! Rachel will have to reach inside herself as she learns more about who she really is and the God who made her.

    This book was a little hard to follow at times, but the over-all story line had me hooked from the start. I got to see what it was like for Germans during the time of Hitler, and from the views of different people living in Germany, which isn't often seen in these type of books. It was a very good and inspirational read - one for older teens because of the tougher subjects and the plot, but well worth your time! My Mom read it as well and loved it!

    WOW! WOW! WOW! This book was wonderful! One of the best I've read written in this era. This book was a page turner not in the thriller suspense sense but in the on my gosh I got to know what is going to happen next to these characters that you fall for.

    While visiting Germany with her father a scientist Rachel gets a plea for help from her friend that is married to a SS officer. Rachel is already starting to question everything around her and concerned about her father's genetic research. This is a time when the perfect race. Kristine is married to a SS officer and see's dark things that she knows are not right and she fears her husband will see their precious deaf child as less that perfect child. In my eyes Amelia is perfect and made just the way God created her. Kristine knew that her husband would see Amelia as a less than perfect child so in order to safe her from a horrible fate she decides to give her to Rachel. So she ask Rachel for help and begs her to take her and care for her.

    This sparks Rachel to start researching what is going on with all the genetic research and testing that they are doing. She gets help from an American journalist and they have to depend on each other more that they ever dreamed since they are being hunted by Hitler's army. They have to do everything they can to keep Amelie safe as well as themselves all while figuring out how to let the world know what really is going on.

    This book is A. Must.Read! Grab a copy and read it you will be so happy you did. This is one of those books I say buy it since I bet you will love it and want to reread it many times!

    thank you so much Tyndale for sending me a copy of Saving Amelie, I LOVE this book, and so happy I have it in my home library to read over and over again!

    Heart wrenching story about Hitler run Germany where the corruption runs deeply. Hitler and his cohorts are working to eradicate anyone who is seen as unperfect in their eyes. This book was hard to read not because on the writing but because of the topic and the anger I felt towards those involved in the genocide. The book is wonderfully written and would definitely read this author again.
