Product Description

“You Are My Sunshine,” is the sequel to “All My Love, Detrick,” this novel is set during the holocaust.

When Helga Haswell becomes pregnant by a married SS officer who abandons her, she finds herself alone and desperate. She is afraid to tell her parents that she is pregnant out of wedlock, so her doctor suggests that Helga check into Heinrich Himmler’s home for the Lebensborn. This is a program, he explains, that has been instituted by the Nazi’s to create perfect Aryan babies. Since Helga is of pure German blood and the child’s father is an SS officer, she will be accepted, the doctor explains. Her child will have a good life because adoption is available only to the finest of Hitler’s Elite. Not only this, the doctor says but during her pregnancy, Helga will have the finest food and medical care available. And, instead of a life of shame, she will be honored for her efforts in producing a perfect Aryan child for the new world that Hitler is in the process of creating. Then after the baby is born, the Lebensborn will take the child and assume all future responsibilities releasing Helga to live her life without the burden of a fatherless offspring. In her desperation, all of this sounded perfect to Helga, that was of course before she felt life stir within her womb. However, by the time this occurred it was already too late. She had already moved into Steinhoring, home for the Lebensorn, and there was no possibility of turning back. The papers were signed. She could not escape. Hitler owned her unborn child.
On a cold day in January Helga’s little girl came into the world. But instead of being sheltered by her mother’s arms, she was torn away by the nurses at the home for the Lebensborn and thrust into a treacherous world where the very people sworn to protect her were not what they seemed. The little girl was growing, and she was amongst some of the cruelest people on earth and subjected daily to the ideology of the Third Reich. But when Hitler became convinced that he was indestructible and, went to war on two fronts dividing his army, Germany began to fall. The Nazi’s became fearful as America entered the war joining Churchill against them in the west, while Stalin a formidable enemy with the brutal Russian winters on his side, ripped them apart in the east. And so, the tables turned on the Third Reich. The cruel Nazi’s, who believed they could not be defeated were about to swallow their pride and surrender at the feet of the Allies. The superior race would prove to be inferior after all. Hitler’s elite would run for cover, some would commit suicide; some would be tried in Nuremberg for crimes against humanity, while others would escape with their tails tucked between their legs and head for South America or other friendly ports. But God had other plans for Helga’s tiny innocent child, who had been born on that January morning. The child’s life was about to change in a very strange but significant way. Instead of becoming whom and what the Nazi’s had hoped to create, this child would be befriended and nurtured by the most unexpected people.

Loved this book. The plot kept moving throughout. It was particularly effective when seen through the eyes of the different characters and all the time, the reader was connecting the dots. It was effective when seen through the eyes of the sensitive German who grows into the brutal camp supervisor of Treblinka and Auschwitz, as well as the caring Jewish mother of a tiny baby girl. The book showed that not all Germans were brutal and that not all Jews were sensitive and caring.
The book ended on a cliff hanger. I wanted to buy the next book when I got to the end...
A great perspective of human feelings in the Holocaust
Bring on "The promised land" the sequel

I felt it didn't link enough with the first novel, but true to the atrocities of the time. I am pleased I read both and I applaud the author of following the human side of a history that the majority of people have forgotten about.

Incredible story, well worth the read. Interesting sad and heart warming loving, But terribly heart wrenching also awful deeds done dirt cheap. Bad men and mad men rolled all into one. Sooo glad the Germans lost the war. Of cause not all Germans are guilty of the in humane deeds done to innocent people. Good descent people,,,,, Let's hope and pray to God we never have to live though that hell. Thank you for sharing.

I thought this was a well-written novel. Obviously well-researched and accurately portrays historical events. The crafting of the characters was quite good. There is good and bad in everyone.

This story can tell the world so much that isn't common knowledge ... And shows how persecution and discrimination does not bring about unity.
