Publisher's Description

2015 Carol award finalist!
Increasingly wary of her father’s genetic research, Rachel Kramer has determined that this trip with him to Germany—in the summer of 1939—will be her last. But a cryptic letter from her estranged friend, begging Rachel for help, changes everything. Married to SS officer Gerhardt Schlick, Kristine sees the dark tides turning and fears her husband views their daughter, Amelie, deaf since birth, as a blight on his Aryan bloodline.

Once courted by Schlick, Rachel knows he’s as dangerous as the swastikas that hang like ebony spiders from every government building in Berlin. She fears her father’s files may hold answers about Hitler’s plans for others, like Amelie, whom the regime deems “unworthy of life.” She risks searching his classified documents only to uncover shocking secrets about her own history and a family she’s never known.

Now hunted by the SS, Rachel turns to Jason Young—a driven, disarming American journalist and unlikely ally—who connects her to the resistance and to controversial theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Forced into hiding, Rachel’s every ideal is challenged as she and Jason walk a knife’s edge, risking their lives—and asking others to do the same—for those they barely know but come to love.

    An absolutely wonderful and touching story.

    This review was written for Saving Amelie.
    Saving Amelie is the first book Ive ready by Cathy Gohlke. It most assuredly wont be my last. My husband made the comment, It must be a good book if you have to take it everywhere you go. Taking a book with me everywhere I go so I can read whenever Im waiting is nothing new, but with this bookevery time I had even five minutes, I picked it up.

    The setting is World War II Germany. Rachel Kramer is an American who must go into hiding when she learns her whole life has been a lie and now she is a wanted woman, wanted by the Gestapo. Secrets her parents kept have revealed things Rachel never would have thought possible. Couple that with the promise of taking care of her best friends little girl, Amelie, who is in danger herself simply for being deaf, Rachel sees almost no hope of getting back home to the States.

    Help and hope for Rachel and Amelie comes in the form of an American journalist, Jason Young. But then he finds himself wanted by the SS as well, and Rachel wonders if they will ever see each other again.

    I love historical fiction, especially that set during WWII. This was a book I could hardly put down. An absolutely wonderful and touching story.

    Tugs at your heartstrings. well researched. Frightening how much of the philosophies used then regarding those with health challenges are being used today in the workplace.

    I enjoyed reading this historical fiction novel. Saving Amelie is set in Germany during World War II. It shows what life was like at a time when great evil prospered in Germany. It also gives a glimpse into the eugenics movement not just in Germany, but in the United States as well. The author shows some of the horrors of the eugenics movement and the tragedy faced by those who didnt meet the ideal Aryan standards that Hitler wanted.

    This book weaves together the stories of a young American woman, an American journalist, a little deaf girl, a German Oma and her granddaughter and grandson-in-law, a Jewish girl, and a Catholic priest. Their lives intersect in a fearful time, and they learn to love and care for each other and for those in need of protection. This book is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.

    What a powerful Book! It is difficult to read because of the travesty of Germany in World War II. Yet it is important to read and understand what those times were like. The book is well written and I felt like I was living the life of Rachel. I cried a lot. In the process of reading I found some similarities to what is going on in America today which makes it even sadder. While this is fiction, it correctly portrays what it was like in Germany. I loved the Spiritual thread throughout the book. This book had a great impact on my life. This book is a finalist for the 2015 Carol Award which is well deserved.

    This review was written for Saving Amelie.
    Touching, exciting, compelling, disturbing, read-in-one-sitting (Don't start in the evening if you want some sleep!) amazing, overwhelming and more. It's all been said, except ...

    The 'slick' SS officer. supposedly such a super model for the perfect man is a real stinker, cruel and vicious to the core. I think Ms. Gohlke cuts him a bit too much slack or paints him too awful later in the book? The cruel Drs. Mengele and Verschuer being as intelligent as they were, would have seen that and looked for a different pairing for the beautiful Rachel.

    Having grown up 'over there' I was glad to see Ms. Gohlke's objective and meticulous research. By 1939 - 41 it was already far too late for any concerted opposition. I am still amazed there was as much as is mentioned in the book. Bethel was mentioned briefly as being on the radar - it was an amazing place and totally devastated later.

    [Also I was reminded of the how the Japanese were treated here. The Jewish folk. The black people. Roman Empire times. And now the worldwide cruelty.]

    Without Christ as Savior humans will always be cruel and evil, covertly or overtly.

    The slow process (ten years) of Rachel, Jason, Rivka, becoming believers seems a little unrealistic to me, But I am glad that ultimately, in the book, all ends well.

    I intended to just mention Mr. Schlick and be done. The book got to me. It will be a keeper, just like a couple of other authors' (Munsons, Helen McInnes {an oldie} ) books.

    Re-reads so I'll not ever forget and to remind me that early discernment gives early means to combat and help.
