The White Rose Network
1942, Germany: “I won’t be able to live if anything happens to you,” she whispered into his ear as they said goodbye, not knowing if they would ever see each other again. The White Rose Network brings to life the incredible true story of Sophie Scholl—one of history’s bravest women—who risked everything to lead a revolution against darkness.
In her first hours at Munich University, Sophie meets Alexander, with raven-black hair and brooding eyes. Instantly, she recognizes a kindred spirit. Like her, he opposes the Nazis. Like her, he will fight against evil.
United by their hatred of Hitler and drawn to each other like moths to a flame, Sophie and Alexander form the White Rose Network. They vow to inspire others to resist—to start a chain reaction and overthrow the regime. But it is a lethal game; impossible to know who to trust. Who is willing to put their life on the line? Who would betray them to evade capture?
In an underground vault, by the glow of candlelight, Sophie and Alexander plot Hitler’s downfall. With each risk they take, and every law they break, they get closer to arrest. Yet promising her heart to Alexander is the most dangerous act of all…
Their lives hang in the balance as the Gestapo offer a reward to anyone with information on the White Rose Network. It’s only a matter of time until the secret police close in on them. When Sophie is imprisoned in an interrogation room, staring a Nazi officer in the eye, will she take their secrets to her grave? Will she sacrifice her freedom for love?
Fans of The Tattooist of Auschwitz, The Alice Network and The Lilac Girls will be completely gripped by this heartbreaking and addictive page-turner. Based on a true story, this inspirational tale shows that, in the face of evil, giving up is not an option…
