It's 1939 in Germany. Hitler's Third Reich is vigorously pursuing its quest for racial, cultural, and social purity. Selective human breeding through the Lebensborn program and systematic euthanasia are to eliminate all traces of ethnic impurity and physical weakness. Genetic research is underway to perfect the near-perfect Aryan strain at the expense of the imperfect. Except for a few brave martyrs, even the German church has given consent to Hitler's dream of a "Thousand Year Reich." Of what value, then, is one life - the life of Anna - a small, sick child? Lost Pulse is the thrilling story of an unlikely rescue attempt by three unlikely people. The exercise of God's power through human weakness, against one of the greatest forces for evil that our world has known will inspire and excite readers. Even though the story is fictional, the historically accurate setting opens a window into the darkness of the Nazi era. And perhaps this story of the re-quickening of the "lost pulse" of compassion will awaken us in the 21st century to check our own "vital signs."
