Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for When the Heart Sings by Liz Tolsma, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



ABOUT THE BOOK

When the Heart Sings-FINAL-front_cover_020518a-HR Title: When the Heart Sings
 

Series: Music of Hope #2
 

Author: Liz Tolsma
 

Publisher: Gilead Publishing
 

Release Date: October 9, 2018

Genre: Historical Fiction/Romance

 



Natia has a secret, and she’s hiding him right beneath her captor’s nose...



The Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their Polish farm to a labor camp. When the couple is separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules—and the consequences for disobeying them—Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.



The stakes get higher when Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear— but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.

 


My thoughts: This is a well written story that puts a different spin on the history of WWII. I love that music is the focus of the series and that this one was about Polish Natia, who may not of been Jewish, but was still looked upon as lesser. This story is creative and a beautiful testament to strength and kindness that can bloom amidst the ugliness of human nature. I look forward to the next book in this series!
I received this book from Just Read tours. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
