Review:

When Hitler seizes power in 1933, a tight-knit group of friends and lovers suddenly become hunted outlaws overnight. Dora, liberated and fearless; her lover, the great playwright Ernst Toller; Ruth; and Ruth's journalist husband, Hans find refuge in London. There, using secret contacts deep inside the Nazi regime, they take breathtaking risks to warn the world of Hitler's plans for war. But England is not the safe haven they think it will be, and a single, chilling act of betrayal will tear them apart....

Based on true events, All That I Am is testament to some of the earliest—now forgotten—heroes of the resistance to Hitler.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | A Novel | Basierend auf wahren Ereignissen erzählt die Autorin von Stasiland hier die Geschichte des sehr frühen Widerstandes gegen Hitler, der schon lange bevor es zum Krieg kam, in der Lage war, die Gestapo auch außerhalb Deutschlands agieren zu lassen. Es ist auch die Lebensgeschichte der mürrischen Rose, die einen großen Teil ihres Lebens hinter sich gelassen hat und des Revolutionärs und Poeten Ernst Toller, der schon früh die Schrecken des Naziregimes erkannte und zu bekämpfen suchte. | "All That I Am" is a masterful and exhilarating exploration of bravery and betrayal, of the risks and sacrifices some people make for their beliefs, and of heroism hidden in the most unexpected places. When eighteen-year-old Ruth Becker visits her cousin Dora in Munich in 1923, she meets the love of her life, the dashing young journalist Hans Wesemann, and eagerly joins in the heady activities of the militant political Left in Germany. Ten years later, Ruth and Hans are married and living in Weimar Berlin when Hitler is elected chancellor of Germany. Together with Dora and her lover, Ernst Toller, the celebrated poet and self-doubting revolutionary, the four become hunted outlaws overnight and are forced to flee to London. Inspired by the fearless Dora to breathtaking acts of courage, the friends risk betrayal and deceit as they dedicate themselves to a dangerous mission: to inform the British government of the very real Nazi threat to which it remains willfully blind. All That I Am is the heartbreaking story of these extraordinary people, who discover that Hitler's reach extends much further than they had thought. Gripping, compassionate, and inspiring, this remarkable debut novel reveals an uncommon depth of humanity and wisdom. Anna Funder has given us a searing and intimate portrait of courage and its price, of desire and ambition, and of the devastating consequences when they are thwarted. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 272 gr | 370 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780670920426
