Staring Down the Devil

Length: 341 pages5 hours


Life is difficult enough in World War II Germany but when Ellie Fischer’s parents are persuaded to open their home to Jewish refugees, the consequences of that single decision drastically change young Ellie’s life forever. Apart from the ever-present danger of the Gestapo discovering her parents’ secret, she soon learns there are other, equally grave, ramifications for their actions. As she navigates her way through several difficult years, Ellie encounters and is influenced by both the good and bad in humanity, all the while wondering if her life is dictated by destiny or if everything happens merely by chance. Staring Down the Devil profiles a young woman who endures unimaginable ordeals and whose strength of character is ultimately proven. It is a story of hope, devotion, perseverance and forgiveness.
