Daisies are Forever Liz Tolsma
Daisies Are Forever by Liz Tolsma was an amazing book.  I read the first book in this series and I have to say when I saw this book I knew I had to read it.  I love books that take place during WWII and this one didn’t let me down.  One thing I love about this author is she isn’t afraid to tell the truth about what happened during WWII and what really happened.  In this book you follow along with Gisela as she escapes from the invading Russian army.  She takes her cousins daughters with her as she leaves because her cousin and grandfather can’t go with her.  I didn’t want to put the book down because I had to know what happened.  If you love books about WWII then you will love this book trust me!

Daisies are Forever

About The Book

Gisela must hold on to hope and love despite all odds in the midst of a war-torn country.

Gisela Cramer is an American living in eastern Germany with her cousin Ella Reinhardt. When the Red Army invades, they must leave their home to escape to safety in Berlin.

However, Ella is a nurse and refuses to leave, sending her young daughters with Gisela. During their journey, Gisela meets Mitch Edwards, an escaped British POW. She pretends she is his wife in order to preserve his safety among other Germans, especially one wounded German soldier, Kurt, who has suspicions about Mitch’s identity. Kurt also has feelings for Gisela and tries to uncover the truth about her “marriage.”

Their journey to Gisela’s mother in Berlin is riddled with tragedy and hardship, but they strive to keep Ella’s daughters safe so they can reunite with their mother. During the journey Gisela and Mitch begin to develop feelings for one another beyond friendship. They reach Berlin, but their struggles are far from over. Gisela and Mitch must learn to live for the day and find hope in the darkest of circumstances.

In this moving, historically accurate portrayal of WWII Germany, the characters learn that, even with destruction all around them, some things last forever.

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.
