Amsterdam, May 1943. As the tulips bloom and the Nazis
tighten their grip across the city, the last signs of Dutch
resistance are being swept away. Marijke de Graaf and her
husband are arrested and deported to different concentration
camps in Germany. Marijke is given a terrible choice: to
suffer a slow death in the labor camp orâ€”for a chance at
survivalâ€”to join the camp brothel.
On the other side of the barbed wire, SS officer Karl MÅ¸ller
arrives at the camp hoping to live up to his fatherâ€™s
expectations of wartime glory. When he encounters the newly
arrived Marijke, this meeting changes their lives forever.
Woven into the narrative across space and time is Luciano
Wagnerâ€™s ordeal in 1977 Buenos Aires, during the heat of the
Argentine Dirty War. In his struggle to endure military
captivity, he searches for ways to resist from a prison cell

From the Netherlands to Germany to Argentina, The Dutch
Wife braids together the stories of three individuals
who share a dark secret and are entangled in two of the most
oppressive reigns of terror in modern history. This is a
novel about the blurred lines between love and lust, abuse
and resistance, and right and wrong, as well as the capacity
for ordinary people to persevere and do the unthinkable in
