Years later, in London during the Nazis V-1 reign of terror, Claus spends his days making propaganda films and his nights as a British spy, worn down by the war and his own many secrets. When Claus meets the intriguing Kate, he finds himself powerfully drawn to her, even after evidence surfaces that she might t be exactly who she seems. As the war hurtles to a violent end, Claus must decide where his own loyalties lie, whether he can make a difference in the war and what might be gained by taking a leap of faith with Kate.
The German Woman was partly inspired by an E. M. Forster quote: If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.
