Atlanta History Center says
New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939, and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance. For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life, but then she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.

The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbrück, the Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

Martha Hall Kelly is a native New Englander who splits her time between New York City, Martha's Vineyard and Atlanta. She worked as an advertising copywriter for many years, and raised three children who are now mostly out of the nest. This is her first novel.

Admission for all lectures is $5 members, $10 nonmembers, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted.
