My Enemy's Cradle Summary


My Enemy's Cradle by Sara Young

A powerful story of love and deception set against the true events of one of the most secret and terrifying of Heinrich Himmler's wartime projects - the Lebensborn Nazi breeding programme

Cyrla's neighbours have begun to whisper. Her cousin, Annika, is pregnant and has passed the rigorous exams for admission to the Lebensborn, a maternity home for Aryan girls carrying German babies. Annika's soldier has disappeared; the Nazis confiscate fatherless children. Cyrla, sent from Poland to hide with her Dutch relatives, has been warned that her neighbours know she is half Jewish. She won't be safe for long.

A cruel twist of fate places Cyrla with the terrible choice between certain discovery in her cousin's home and taking Annika's place in the Lebensborn. If she takes refuge in teh enemy's lair, can Cyrla fool teh doctors, nurses, guards and other mothers-to-be? How will she escape before they discover she is not who she claims?

My Enemy's Cradle Reviews


Praise for `My Enemy's Cradle'

`Tense and gripping...Young's novel is meticulously researched and the facts are unobtrusive, wrought into the story with intelligence and precision'
Observer

`Sara Young's research has been so thorough, it's hard to believe you're not reading a genuine survivor's account - this is a truly remarkable story'
She

`A scary evocation of a time history would rather forget'
Eve

`Gripping'
Choice

'That love can find purchase in the most hostile soil has rarely been so heroically proven. Tenderly and fiercely felt, Young's tale of a young Jewish woman trapped in the sinister web of the Nazi Lebensborn program is that true find, a story truly never before told'
Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of `Cage of Stars'
