ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

20131109-112615.jpg

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.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

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:

Do you love war stories full of romance, faith and inspiration?
Then you positively MUST read Snow On the Tulips by Liz Tolsma!
This is a story inspired by actual events, completely immersing readers into the reality of war.
The author has done a wonderful job of expressing the day by day turmoil and emotional strain of living in this time period.
Faith shines like a lighthouse in the storm throughout the story, and I love that!
This story really spoke to my heart this truth: in the darkest of nights, there is always hope…no matter how small- hope lives and we must cling to it!
Liz Tolsma is superb in relaying the details of character’s language, mannerisms and heart.
Don’t miss this one!!!
