Striving to Make a Difference Against the Power of the Third Reich Jack Cavanaugh, novelist and skilled researcher, opens the window to the riveting but less-known story of Christians in Hitler’s Germany. Pastor Josef Schumacher and his family were introduced in While Mortals Sleep, Book One in the SONGS IN THE NIGHT series. Pastor Schumacher has risked everything to stand against the evils of Nazism, working closely with a small group of young people in his congregation to influence them toward righteousness amid very difficult circumstances. One of those young people is now Second Lieutenant Konrad Reichmann. For all Schumacher’s fervent prayers and impassioned pleas, the Hitler Youth movement has won Konrad’s loyalty. But now on the Russian Front, he has discovered that reality bears no resemblance to the glory of the Third Reich. Even lower than his unit’s morale are supplies and fuel as Russia’s winter is unleashed. When the slaughter of innocents further disillusions him, Konrad embarks upon a bold and dangerous plan.
