What would you do to save a stranger? Would you risk your life? What about the life of your last family member? Cornelia mourns the loss of her country’s freedom at the hands of Nazi Germany, but is she ready to risk her life and her brother’s safety to help the Resistance? Snow on the Tulips was a gripping story of fear, strength, courage, and the realization that it is sometimes up to the people that are the most scared to really make a difference.
Snow on the Tulips
In the war torn country of the Netherlands, the community is scared to fight. No one knows who can be trusted to resist. Even family members have different allegiances and feelings of what is right and wrong. I loved the transforming process that the characters undergo. The struggle to save a stranger brings out the best in these characters.
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.
About the author: Liz Tolsma
My life is always a changing scene, full and busy with writing inspirational historical fiction and raising a family. I have been writing seriously for a number of years now, but have wanted to be an author since the fifth grade when my teacher wrote, “I hope to see you as a published authoress,” in my autograph book. I was hooked.
When I’m not busy writing, I enjoy reading, especially historical romance. You can also find me working in my garden, walking my black lab, Kylie, camping with my family, kayaking or crocheting.
