Teen-aged Resistance fighter Liddy has persevered, going toe-to-toe with Nazi officer Keppler. Living out her faith has helped save the Mittendorf family bakery in Berlin. 

But now, as WW II is winding down, the city is under siege by the Russians, and the family’s very survival lies in the balance. 

The final invasion brings with it an unthinkable atrocity forced upon Liddy. With mounting misfortunes, she questions not only the viability of an unwanted pregnancy, but also her once strong faith. 

Meanwhile, Liddy’s sweetheart and fellow Resistance warrior, Marek, who was snatched away from her by the Nazis, has been longing to reunite. Escaping from a gruesome work camp, he strives mightily to find Liddy, but time and again is re-buffed. 

The end of the war brings hardship to all. But out of nowhere, the redeemed Keppler, imprisoned in a POW camp, comes back in a most startling way.

Her chin dipped down, her eyes closed, and her cheeks flushed as she snuck a quick peek at the baby. Her tears of joy upon seeing Marek abounded. But now the pendulum of emotions seemed to swing the other way. She began sobbing as she buried her head against his chest.

“What happened, Liddy? What does this all mean?” He took a slow breath and felt the warmth of his cheeks flushing as a mounting uneasiness bubbled up, coming from deep within.

“Oh, Marek! It was a nightmare,” Liddy started out slowly. “When they came barging into the bakery in the middle of the night, then…” She stopped short. “I just can’t talk about it.”

“It’s okay, Liddy. It’s okay.” He pressed the words into her ear, breathing in a faint scent of cinnamon reminiscent of the bakery.
