In occupied Holland during World War II, sixteen-year-old Janke Visser watches her father's and brother's involvement with the Resistance movement in their small town and longs to help fight the Nazi invaders.

And then she meets Helmut, a young German soldier who doesn't fit the stereotype she has learned to hate so fiercely. Now suddenly she must deal with confusing new feelings for the enemy. But when Janke is captured while helping an Allied airman escape, her fate seems sealed. Unless Helmut is willing to betray his own country...
