Book Review: Snow on the Tulips

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


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.


Meet the author: 

Liz Tolsma has lived in Wisconsin most of her life, and she now resides next to a farm field with her husband, their son, and their two daughters. Add a dog and a cat to that mix and there's always something going on at their house. She's spent time teaching second grade, writing advertising for a real estate company, and working as a church secretary, but she always dreamed of becoming an author.

She'd love to have you visit her at www.liztolsma.com.

My Opinion
As I have mentioned before, WWII books are my FAVORITE time period to read about. This time in history is so historic, horrific, heroic and interesting - I just never get tired of books about WWII.

So when I saw that Snow on the Tulips was about the Nazis and the Dutch, I was so excited because this is one area I have not read about during this time period! And it was just as good as I thought it would be!

It had the perfect mix of romance and history and it was so well written! I just wanted to keep reading and growing with Gerrit and Cornelia's relationship and the events that took place really took me back to that era and gave me a look at what the people really suffered while the Nazis were invading and fighting the Allies in their country!

I highly recommend if you love historical fiction, especially from the WWII era!
