Safe Harbor


Author: Gerhardt Roberts
Publisher: Roberts Ink
Pages: 311
Genre: Historical / World War II / Romance

In World War II Berlin, Jews such as Erich Reinhold, who can pass for Aryan, and his sweetheart, Nessa Baumgartner, go underground. In a city where Jewish life is being snuffed out, they soon find themselves in a world of false identification papers and forged ration cards, risking their lives to help others escape to freedom. Safety is a foreign word, danger is everywhere and love is a luxury they can’t afford. But maybe, in spite of danger and separation, they will find their safe harbor.

My Review

I am a fan of these types of stories. Yet, to pull them off the author has to write a great story with engaging characters as these books are very character driven. I am happy to report that Mr. Roberts did pull this off successfully with this book. 

Erich and Nessa are the main characters but all of the other characters in this story played important parts as well. There was not a dull moment to be found within the pages of this book. Once, I started reading I could not stop. I was swept into this story. My emotional investment in Erich and Nessa's story was strong. Therefore, everything that they experienced was felt. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of historical fiction or looking for a really good book to read.
