World War II has already taken so much from young Cornelia. So much, that she just wants to turn her back on the whole affair and wait for the Allies to come save the Netherlands from the Germans. But, when Gerrit Laninga's execution is botched near her home, she must decide if she is willing to put her life on the line for this young Resistance worker who has places God and country above personal safety and romance. As Cornelia and her family struggle to figure out what God would have them do, Cornelia finds herself falling for the dangerous man.
Based on real events in Liz Tolsma's own family, this novel is rich in history and detail. I loved the characters and their personal struggles, as I would imagine it is hard to be placed in a situation where you know the right thing to do would be to fight the evil, even when you want to bury your head in the sand.
I highly recommend this one!
