Darkness into Light is the story of a world trying to find its bearings after the upheaval of World War II. It is also the story of a man and a woman trying to find each other in war-ravaged Europe. The two go to unimaginable extremes to fulfill their objective, including stints in the intelligence world. The result is a stunning and unimagined conclusion.
Darkness into Light is a historical thriller set in Europe immediately following World War II. This sequel to Footsteps to Forever follows U.S. Army nurse Jennifer Haraldsson as she joins America’s fledgling intelligence service. She sets out to find her former patient and enemy, German POW Otto Bruner. She has to find out if her feelings for him can replace the anger she feels at him for his role in killing her fiancé. Bruner is looking for her as well, having agreed to spy for the Russians in an effort to save his family.
Readers who enjoyed Footsteps to Forever will love this book since it follows the continuing saga of the surviving characters. Those who haven’t read the prequel won’t be left out either, since the author does a very good job of creating a fast-paced story that stands on its own as well. This story will keep you in suspense until the last page.
