Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma


Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma was an amazing book.   This book takes place during WWII which just happens to be one of the time periods in history that I love learning and reading about.  I also loved this book because my grandma’s family is from the Netherlands and she is working on her family history right now so I feel like I know the people.  I loved this book but it was a hard read for me because I knew that this book is fiction but things like this had to have actually happened to people there.  This is a book that I know I will hold on to because the author does an amazing job of telling the story and of making you feel like you are there going through everything with the characters.  I loved the love story as well in this book and I was sad when it finally did come to an end because I love the characters and in the end I felt like I knew them.  If you love WWII and love stories than I know you will love this book!

About Snow on the Tulips

A stranger’s life hangs in the balance. But to save him is to risk everything.
The war is drawing to a close, but the Nazis still occupy part of the Netherlands. After the losses she’s endured, war widow Cornelia is only a shadow of the woman she once was. She fights now to protect her younger brother, Johan, who lives in hiding.
When Johan brings Gerrit Laninga, a wounded Dutch Resistance member, to Cornelia’s doorstep, their lives are forever altered. Although scared of the consequences of harboring a wanted man, Cornelia’s faith won’t let her turn him out.
As she nurses Gerrit back to health, she is drawn to his fierce passion and ideals, and notices a shift within herself. Gerrit’s intensity challenges her, making her want to live fully, despite the fear that constrains her. When the opportunity to join him in the Resistance presents itself, Cornelia must summon every ounce of courage imaginable.
She is as terrified of loving Gerrit as she is of losing him. But as the winter landscape thaws, so too does her heart. Will she get a second chance at true love? She fears their story will end before it even begins.
