DAISIES ARE FOREVER | Enter to win a Kindle HDX from Liz Tolsma!

Liz Tolsma's latest book has finally released.  Daisies are Forever is another book that takes place during WWII.  You can read about the story, my review and find information about the author below.

About the book:

Gisela must hold on to hope and love despite all odds in the midst of a war-torn country.
Gisela Cramer is an American living in eastern Germany with her cousin Ella Reinhardt. When the Red Army invades, they must leave their home to escape to safety in Berlin.
However, Ella is a nurse and refuses to leave, sending her young daughters with Gisela. During their journey, Gisela meets Mitch Edwards, an escaped British POW. She pretends she is his wife in order to preserve his safety among other Germans, especially one wounded German soldier, Kurt, who has suspicions about Mitch's identity. Kurt also has feelings for Gisela and tries to uncover the truth about her "marriage."
Their journey to Gisela's mother in Berlin is riddled with tragedy and hardship, but they strive to keep Ella's daughters safe so they can reunite with their mother. During the journey Gisela and Mitch begin to develop feelings for one another beyond friendship. They reach Berlin, but their struggles are far from over. Gisela and Mitch must learn to live for the day and find hope in the darkest of circumstances.
In this moving, historically accurate portrayal of WWII Germany, the characters learn that, even with destruction all around them, some things last forever.

My Review:
Daisies are Forever is during the same time period that the first book Snow on the Tulips takes place--the end of World War II. (You can read my review of her first book here.)  The difference is that while Snow on the Tulips takes place in the Netherlands, this story takes place right inside of Germany.  Each of these books are stand alone novels and do not need to be read in order.  When thinking about World War II, I've never really thought about the war from the perspective of Germany's citizens.  All I've ever thought about Germany was how horrible Hitler was and that it was a good thing we defeated him.  But there were so many innocent people inside of Germany that were treated violently even though they were not in support of what Hitler was doing.  This story will help you imagine what the people of Germany suffered under Hitler's wicked leadership.  Liz Tolsma has done a wonderful job in recreating a compelling story with vivid scenes that will paint quite a picture for your mind.  So make sure to pick up this great book of historical fiction and think about World War II from another perspective!
