In the summer of 1944, twenty-year-old Marlene is thrilled to visit her older cousin, Eva Braun-Adolf Hitler's mistress-at the Führer's Bavarian mountain retreat. There, Marlene finds herself in a strange paradise, a world of opulence and imminent danger, of freedom and surveillance.The two women sneak off and skinny-dip in a nearby lake, watch films in the Führer's private cinema, and flirt with the SS officers at the dinner table-one of whom will become Marlene's first lover.But soon a clandestine mission of mercy forces Marlene to question her allegiance to both her cousin and her country-and to face the chilling reality that exists outside her sheltered world.
