A forbidden love. A deadly secret. `An absorbing, well-researched story that brings to life an extraordinary period in history' GILL PAUL, bestselling author of The Secret Wife A fascinating, bold read, allowing you access to the Second World War from an unusual viewpoint. Magda Ritter tells her own story as she moves from Berlin to Hitler’s retreat The Berghof to act as the ultimate protector, Hitler’s food taster. Magda has to be prepared to give her life for the Fuhrer, yet she finds love and a social conscience in the most unlikely of places. V. S. Alexander writes with a beautiful simplicity, allowing the heart of the story to shine through. The words encourage you to imagine, to experience, to feel. Taking you into the heart of Germany during the Second World War, ‘Her Hidden Life’ is an absorbing and intriguing foray, that encouraged me to think and feel from an entirely different perspective.
