Traitor by Sandra Grey. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

In France, during World War II, Marie Jacobson is willing to sacrifice her life and freedom to be with her fiance again. However, her plan to help the Resistance doesn't work out as she plans and she soon finds herself a prisoner of war and in the hands of Major Rolf Schulmann. Marie faces many conflicts within herself as she tries to determine what side she's on and who she should trust.

I am not usually a fan of war books, but this one captured my attention from the very beginning. It made me think a lot about the complications of war, the conflict with ones personal morals as a Latter-Day Saint in the midst of war, and the feelings that must arise from such situations. It also made me very grateful to be at home, safe with my family in this amazing country. This book was well written and very interesting. It is a story about war, but I would think that it would appeal more to teenage girls and women then men, because of the romance angle. I can't wait to read the sequel when it comes out!
