About the book:
A Man. A Brother. A Traitor.
The war has taken everything Micah Wilson has ever held dear, and with all his being he wishes he could do something to stop the heartache. But he often wonders if he’ll
ever be able to move on after the war, or forget the brother who left six years before. How can God still have a plan when it seems that the world around him is falling to pieces, to say nothing of his own heart?
Ann Sullivan has seen two brothers changed by the war. And she’s resolved to do something to stop the pain she sees in their eyes from becoming a reality for so many others. The world is on the brink of Normandy when her nursing unit is shipped to England and, while there, an unexpected encounter promises to change her own life . . . forever. But it’s only the beginning. As the war in Europe rages on, Ann is caught in the crossfires. And when the unthinkable happens, she comes face to face with the evil of the Third Reich. Is it possible that the reality of it all is more deadly than even her worst nightmares?
Erich Essler never questioned his duty to his country. All his life he’s struggled to live up to his father’s expectations, and bring honor to the Essler name. But when the man he thought of as his only friend turns out to be the enemy, he can no longer rid himself of the questions that continue to torment him. Is what he’s doing really honorable? And does he owe his loyalty to his country . . . or a higher power?
Freedom for Europe dawns on the distant horizon. But in the midst of the fight, four lives will be forever changed, and their loyalty to God and Country brought into question.
Genre: Historical, WWII, romance, Christian fiction.
My Rating: 5 stars. (Though, I would give 500 if I could!)
My Recommendation: 13 to 16 up.
My Favorite Character/s: All. Of. Them. Seriously, other then the bad guys, I loved all of the characters and I can’t bring myself to pick a favorite and you have to our the reasons yourself by reading the book when it comes out!
My Verse for this book is Romans 8:28
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (King James Version.)
My Thoughts: Ah, this story was so heartbreaking! I enjoyed it but the emotion that Miss Wheaton wove such love and pain throughout this whole novel. I loved the first two books and feel like I have been waiting for this one forever, but I haven’t, not really, right? Nope, not at all, I only read the second book a day before I read this one. *facedesk* It sat on my Kindle for a while until I got my ARC of this one. And I love this whole series so much! Just think, WWII, romance, traveling, and a doctor, they all make for a sweetly heartbreakingly wonderful story.
Warnings: This is a book about WWII so you can expect the cruel things that happened during that time though it isn’t too detailed
