Rebecca Donner's new book, All the Frequent Troubles of Our Days, was an instant New York Times Bestseller, a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice, and a Publishers Weekly Top Ten Book of the Year. In this “stunning literary achievement,” Donner chronicles the extraordinary life and brutal death of her great-great-aunt Mildred Harnack, the American leader of one of the largest underground resistance groups in Germany during WWII—“a page-turner story of espionage, love and betrayal” (Kai Bird, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Biography). It's been called "extraordinarily intimate… wilder and more expansive than a standard-issue biography… a real-life thriller with a cruel ending" (The New York Times), "powerful" (The Wall Street Journal), "deeply moving" (LA Times), "a tour de force of investigation" (Economist), "surprising... affecting" (The New York Times Book Review), and "gorgeous... revelatory '' (Oprah Daily).
