Daisies Are Forever

Look Inside the book HERE.

I’ll start out my review by saying - this is the best book I’ve read in quite some time. I’m not overly familiar with stories with a WWII setting, but after reading…no, experiencing this story—I’ll eagerly seek them out.

Liz Tolsma is a superb writer with a strong ability to set a scene with such clarity that I could hear, smell, taste, touch, feel and see the battle-raged cities and battered victims of WWII. I felt a sense of community with Gisela and her family and friends. I sympathized with each character’s plight, their yearnings and fears. I reached the limits of my emotions—crying, laughing, aching and sighing—within the pages of this book.

Daisies Are Forever, inspired by true events, is much more than a romance. It deals with history, emotion, loyalty, family dynamics, realities of war, violence, loss, pain, fear, forgiveness, spirituality and redemption.

Simply said, I couldn’t put this book down. I didn’t want the story to end. I didn’t want to say goodbye to these characters, for they are now my friends.
