Where Treasure Hides
Artist Alison Schuyler spends her time working in her family’s renowned art gallery, determined to avoid the curse that has followed the Schuyler clan from the Netherlands to America and back again. She’s certain that true love will only lead to tragedy—that is, until a chance meeting at Waterloo station brings Ian Devlin into her life. Drawn to the bold and compassionate British Army captain, Alison begins to question her fear of love as World War II breaks out, separating the two and drawing each into their own battles. While Ian fights for freedom on the battlefield, Alison works with the Dutch Underground to find a safe haven for Jewish children and priceless pieces of art alike. But safety is a luxury war does not allow. As time, war, and human will struggle to keep them apart, will Alison and Ian have the faith to fight for their love, or is it their fate to be separated forever?
My thoughts: I just couldn't pass this book up, between it's gorgeous cover and compelling synopsis! Not to mention, I find stories set in WWII interesting, since it was a horrible time, and yet hope and courage blossomed. The author does a fabulous job of causes such a complex time in history to come alive, centering her story on facts about WWII that aren't as well known. The story is well developed and hard to put down! I thought that the characters were well developed as well. If you are looking for a book that will be hard to put down, then this is a book for you.;)
I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
