The story of three women, a nation on the brink of disaster, and the countless lives that hang in the balance

At Heim Hochland, a Nazi sanctioned maternity home in Bavaria, three women’s fates are irrevocably intertwined. Gundi is a pregnant student from Berlin—an Aryan beauty, she’s secretly a member of a resistance group. Hilde, only 18, is a true believer in the cause and is thrilled to carry a Nazi official’s child. And Irma, a 44-year-old nurse, is desperate to build a new life for herself after personal devastation. All three have everything to lose.

Based on untold historical events, this novel brings us intimately inside the women’s homes that actually existed in several countries during World War II, when thousands of babies were taken from their mothers to be raised as part of the new Germany. But it proves that in a dark period of history, the connections women forge can carry us through, even driving us to heroism we didn’t know we had within us.


In addition to “Cradles of the Reich,” Jennifer Coburn has published a mother-daughter travel memoir, “We’ll Always Have Paris,” as well as six contemporary women’s novels. Additionally, Jennifer has contributed to five literary anthologies, including A Paris All Your Own.

Jennifer lives in San Diego with her husband, William. Their daughter, Katie is currently in graduate school. When Jennifer is not going down historical research rabbit holes, she volunteers with So Say We All, a live storytelling organization, where she is a performer, producer, and performance coach. She is also an active volunteer with Reality Changers, a nonprofit that supports low-income high school students in becoming the first in their families to attend college.
