Snow on the Tulips “Amazon Reader Pack” Giveaway from Liz Tolsma!


About the book: 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.

My Review:
Let me start by saying, I LOVED this book!  Liz Tolsma is a new to me author and she has quickly become one of my favorites.  I love history and this story is actually based on some true facts from the author's own family history.  I loved the way that Liz Tolsma writes and how she is able to describe the scene of the Netherlands under Nazi rule so well.  The story was filled with suspense especially when the Nazi soldiers came knocking on Cornelia's door.  And there is definitely a budding romance between Cornelia and the man she is nursing back to health.  The characters face many hurtles that they have to overcome in order to move ahead with life.  Their faith and trust in God is definitely challenged throughout the war.
Liz Tolsma will be on my favorite authors list for sure!  Her next book Daisies Last Forever will be out May 2014.  So make sure to pick this one up.  You won't be disappointed!!
