This is a historical fiction book based on real events that happened during WWII in France. I was completely blown away by it's presence in a Reader's Digest book, so I enjoyed it while it lasted. I've always had a thing for historical fiction and military history, so combing them probably puts me in a biased mood for a review. Nonetheless, this was a great story about what happened in France during the height of the war and Nazi invasion. It is the story of a pastor that saves Jewish lives, it' [...]
This story revolves around several characters from Le Lignon, France during WWII. Based on a real town that harbored refugees during the war, this novel revolves around a Protestant minister, his Jewish foster daughter, and an American pilot who crash lands near the town. I can't pinpoint exactly what it was that prevented me from really enjoying it; one thing that annoyed me was that the author presented several promising characters (even going so far as to offer backgrounds) and then abandon t [...]
This novel is a popularized version of true events, that a village in France hid Nazis because God used a pastor to preach the golden rule. In this book we have a love story front and center and a fighting climax--fun to read, but over the top. I'm going back to Lest Innocent Blood Be Shed, which is an historical account.
This story was based on real life experience of the Pastor in the story and makes for a great read, without giving anything away it makes you realise just how brave these people were to deify Hitlers regime, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
The book that taught me everything I wasn't really all that curious about pertaining to forbidden WWII sex, read while sitting in the backseat of my parents' 1990 Ford Taurus while driving to the Rockies.
Bogen skulle være bygget på en rigtig historie, og den er også spændende nok, men personligt syntes jeg der er andre bøger om modstandskamp og kærlighed under anden verdenskrig som er bedre skrevet og mere fængende.
If this were the only book I had been reading at the time I might have enjoyed it better. But I kept wishing I was reading one of the other books in my stack that I am alwys rotating through.
If you enjoy a little history with your mystery; Daley is the author for you.
A cheesy novel, without a distinctive voice & one-dimensional characters, about WWII resistance in France. I didn't read very far.
