But when she falls in love with an American man, the Stasi begins to take an increased interest in her and her frequent visitor. When she decides to leave the GDR, she discovers just how all-powerful, arbitrary and menacing a police state can be for those who challenge the system. A great read that you will not want to put down until the suspense-filled end. This compelling love story is inspired by the author’s own file the Stasi of East Germany kept on her.
