Wow! Excellent WW2 story, set in England and Czechoslovakia in 1938-1939. The main characters, instead of being soldiers, doctors, nurses, and so on—as you might find in the average WW2 novel—are a governess, a writer, and a freshly bereaved Jewish widow and mother of two. The combination is exce...

A Daring Escape by Tricia Goyer is an interesting twist on a World War II story. I have read many World War II stories, and I have loved many of them. Lately many of the stories feature the effects of Hitler on different countries. Goyer picked Czechoslovakia. With a historical romance,...

I have to admit I was a little nervous going into this book because I really didn't care for the first book in the series. But I have liked her other books so I went into it with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised to find it more like her previous books I'd liked.
I am always thrilled with...

From her role as a tutor to caring for Jewish...

I am a fan of Tricia Goyer, I’m not going to lie but this book was awesome. The imagery, the flow of the words and so many other things that had me on the edge of my seat waiting for what happened next. I knew a happy ending was in the works yet the book wasn’t predictable. There were a couple sl...

Astounding! I loved this book. It was a sit on the edge of your seat, biting your finger nails, nerve wracking book. I love that this book is so different from a lot of other ww2 books. Based in Czechoslovakia, it wasn’t centered around a concentration camp but instead around kindertransport. I c...
