Into the Flames, volume 6 of the Fire and Steel series, begins as Adolf Hitler completes his transformation of the German Republic into a total, harsh dictatorship and as the Great Depression continues to ravage the United States. The tumultuous times bring new experiences, new challenges, new opportunities, and not a few tragedies into the lives of the Eckhardt and Westland families.
In America, Mitch and Edie Westland continue their struggle to hang onto the ranch they created almost fifty years earlier, while Benji’s quest to find work turns to tragedy and sets him on a new path that will take him to exotic climes and an unexpected reunion.
In Germany, Hans makes a dangerous, life-changing decision to leave the Nazi Party leadership and seeks a new career. But when the ugly specter of anti-Semitism wields a direct and devastating impact on the Eckhardt family, they too are drawn into a maelstrom of events that threatens to destroy the very fabric of their lives. As 1938 draws to a close and the dark clouds of war move in, they must draw on their faith and courage in order to endure whatever life has in store for them.
