The Tulip Resistance
Pulled into a war she doesn’t understand, Marieka Cordoven is just a Dutch girl who wouldn’t dare resist the Germans. But helping a wounded German soldier—a defector—changes her mind about everything. This tense historical drama delves into the intricacies of the Dutch resistance, its grit to defy orders, and its plan to do what’s right.
My thoughts: I find reading about WWII interesting, since there were so many courageous people who chose to make a stand when the whole world seemed to be falling apart. This book is an interesting edition to my collection of WWII books. I liked the main character, though I was kind of surprised at how dark some of the other characters are. I was kind of surprised that there were several characters who were hard to like. The story is a bit dark, but I suppose that is to be expected when dealing with war. I also felt like it ended a bit abruptly, though I am happy to see that there will be a sequel coming out! This book is an unique look at history.
I received this book from Cedar fort in exchange for my honest review.
