I have loved every book I have read by the Thoenes. They weave together the lives of so many different characters in such a way that it creates a tightly knit fabric that draws me along to find out what happens to all of these characters during the time in Europe just before World War II or in Jerusalem leading up to the establishment of a Jewish state.
These are areas of history that I have not studied in detail. Of course I've studied World War II before and know many of the signs that people of that time did not know would lead to such a war but that people looking on from behind see perfectly. I have not studied what happened in Europe at the time so being able to delve into that time through the eyes of the characters Bodie and Brock create is such a thrill.
This series picks up with the stories of many of the characters I met in another of their series in 1947 mere months before the establishment of the Jewish state.
When I finished the book I put it down reluctantly. As much as I wanted to simply dive into the rest of the books in the series I pulled myself away and started to work on the other things I have to get done for the day.
I strongly recommend these authors to anyone who loves compelling Christian historical fiction.
