Description

In Rebecca Cantrell's "A City of Broken "Glass, journalist Hannah Vogel is in Poland with her son Anton to cover the 1938 St. Martin festival when she hears that 12,000 Polish Jews have been deported from Germany. Hannah drops everything to get the story on the refugees, and walks directly into danger.

Kidnapped by the SS, and driven across the German border, Hannah is rescued by Anton and her lover, Lars Lang, who she had presumed dead two years before. Hannah doesn't know if she can trust Lars again, with her heart or with her life, but she has little choice. Injured in the escape attempt and wanted by the Gestapo, Hannah and Anton are trapped with Lars in Berlin. While Hannah works on an exit strategy, she helps to search for Ruth, the missing toddler of her Jewish friend Paul, who was disappeared during the deportation.

Trapped in Nazi Germany with her son just days before Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, Hannah knows the dangers of staying any longer than needed. But she can't turn her back on this one little girl, even if it plunges her and her family into danger.

Praise For A City of Broken Glass

Praise for Rebecca Cantrell:

"Cantrell’s books are a blast."  —Boston Herald on A Game of Lies "Chillingly realistic... There's so much to love about this novel."  —USA Today on A Game of Lies

“A race-against-the-clock thriller… Cantrell keeps the close calls and cliff-hangers coming."
Kirkus Reviews on A Night of Long Knives

“Set in 1931 Berlin, Cantrell’s scrupulously researched debut tolls a somber dirge for Weimar Germany in its last days…this unforgettable novel, which can be as painful to read as the history it foreshadows, builds to an appropriately bittersweet ending.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review, on  A Trace of Smoke
