Germany, 1944. Taken from the camps to serve the Fuhrer himself, Anke Hoff has been assigned as midwife to one of Hitler's inner circle. If she refuses, her family will die. Torn between her duty as a caregiver and her hatred for the regime she's now a part of, Anke is quickly swept into a life unlike anything she's ever known - and she discovers that many of those at the Berghof are just as trapped as she is. Soon, she's falling for a man who will make her world more complicated still. Before long, the couple is faced with an impossible choice - for which the consequences could be deadly. Can their forbidden love survive the horrors of war - and, more importantly, will they?

"These stories do not attempt to deal with the greater aspects of this war. They are tales built upon true incidents. Most of the characters are real. At the suggestion of personal friends, these stories, which were originally published as sketches of the author's actual war experiences, have been widened in scope and put in a more extended and permanent form, so that the narrative form ... will make these recollections of war's romance more interesting"--Preface.

This volume gathers the writings of thirty-five nineteenth-century women on the stories of women in Joshua and Judges. Recovering and analyzing neglected works by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many others, Women of War,Women of Woe illuminates the biblical text, recovers a neglected chapter of reception history, and helps us understand and apply Scripture in our present context. The stories of Rahab, Deborah, Jael, Delilah, Manoah's wife, Achsah, Jephthah's daughter, and the Levite's concubine raised thorny questions for these female biblical interpreters -- questions that they addressed candidly in their writings. Could a Victorian woman use her intelligence to negotiate like Rahab? Was the seemingly well-educated Deborah an appropriate role model? Or did Jephthah's daughter more correctly model a pious woman's life as she submitted to her father's vow? The voices collected in this book offer thoughtful reflection on and responses to these questions and more.

Women of the Afghan War

Women of the Afghan War

This is an account of the Afghan War and its tragic aftermath as told by the women who were caught up in it and became its innocent victims.

This is an account of the Afghan War and its tragic aftermath as told by the women who were caught up in it and became its innocent victims. The voices in this oral history will provide personal snapshots to the news reports of the Taliban activities now coming out of Afghanistan. These accounts provide an historical background to the growth of the Taliban, and reveal circumstances of the daily life of the women who must survive in this very closed society. Through the medium of oral history, this book brings to light the stories of the women who have suffered the consequences of the Afghan War and whose lives and whose daughter's lives have been changed forever. Through the voices of the Soviet women who supported their soldiers on Afghan soil, and the voices of the Afghan women scattered by circumstance around the globe, the last Cold War battle between the superpowers takes on a very personal tone. Policy decisions issued from on high became the rockets that destroyed these women physically, mentally, and emotionally. Children were killed or maimed and homes and families destroyed. Ultimately, these women were forced to flee or become invisible within their homeland. The Taliban militia rose from the dust of this war and by government decree reduced even the most educated and influential of the women to non-person status.

A Woman s Civil War

A Woman s Civil War

McDonald's story of the Civil War records a personal and distinctly female battle of her own—a southern woman's lonely struggle in the midst of chaos to provide safety and shelter for herself and her children.

On the night of March 11, 1862, as the heavy tramp of Confederate marching troops died away in the distance—her husband's regiment among them—Cornelia Peake McDonald began her diary of events in war-torn Winchester, Virginia. McDonald's story of the Civil War records a personal and distinctly female battle of her own—a southern woman's lonely struggle in the midst of chaos to provide safety and shelter for herself and her children. For McDonald, history is what happens “inside the house.” She relates the trauma that occurs when the safety of the home is disrupted and destroyed by the forces of war—when women and children are put out of their houses and have nowhere to go. Whether she is describing a Union soldier's theft of her Christmas cakes, the discovery of a human foot in her garden, or the death of her baby daughter, McDonald's story of the Civil War at home is compelling and disturbing. Her tremendous determination and unyielding spirit in the face of the final collapse of her world is testimony to a woman's will to preserve her family and her own sense of purpose as a “rebel” against all that she regarded as tyrannical and brutal in war itself.
