Munich, 1938. Evelyn Brand is an American foreign correspondent as determined to prove her worth in a male-dominated profession as she is to expose the growing tyranny in Nazi Germany. To do so, she must walk a thin line. If she offends the government, she could be expelled from the country--or worse. If she fails to truthfully report on major stories, she'll never be able to give a voice to the oppressed--and wake up the folks back home.

In another part of the city, American graduate student Peter Lang is working on his PhD in German. Disillusioned with the chaos in the world due to the Great Depression, he is impressed with the prosperity and order of German society. But when the brutality of the regime hits close, he discovers a far better way to use his contacts within the Nazi party--to feed information to the shrewd reporter he can't get off his mind.

This electric standalone novel from fan-favorite Sarah Sundin puts you right at the intersection of pulse-pounding suspense and heart-stopping romance.


"Once again Sarah Sundin takes readers straight into the heart of the conflict surrounding World War II. I loved the passionate characters in When Twilight Breaks, the unexpected turns, and the courage and love in the midst of a seemingly impossible situation. Another engaging, beautifully written romance for all of us who enjoy stepping back through the pages of historical fiction."

Melanie Dobson, award-winning author of Catching the Wind and Memories of Glass

"Genuine. Gripping. Gorgeous . . . When Twilight Breaks paints a unique portrait of a pre-war Nazi Germany that is both multifaceted and terrifyingly real. With pitch-perfect details and her signature depth of historical accuracy, Sundin explores the overlapping boundaries of faith, truth, consequence, and love--of stalwart characters Evelyn and Peter--in a world drawn to the brink of WWII. While skillful storytelling is on full display, it is the authentic element of faith in dark times that steals the show, proving yet again that Sundin is a true master of the genre. Readers will be left spellbound!"
