Hidden among the Stars by Melanie Dobson

Hidden among the Stars by Melanie Dobson

The year is 1938, and as Hitler’s troops sweep into Vienna, Austrian Max Dornbach promises to help his Jewish friends hide their most valuable possessions from the Nazis, smuggling them to his family’s summer estate near the picturesque village of Hallstatt. He enlists the help of Annika Knopf, his childhood friend and the caretaker’s daughter, who is eager to help the man she’s loved her entire life. But when Max also brings Luzia Weiss, a young Jewish woman, to hide at the castle, it complicates Annika’s feelings and puts their entire plan—even their very lives—in jeopardy. Especially when the Nazis come to scour the estate and find both Luzia and the treasure gone. Eighty years later, Callie Randall is mostly content with her quiet life, running a bookstore with her sister and reaching out into the world through her blog. Then she finds a cryptic list in an old edition of Bambithat connects her to Annika’s story . . . and maybe to the long-buried story of a dear friend. As she digs into the past, Callie must risk venturing outside the safe world she’s built for a chance at answers, adventure, and maybe even new love.

My Review

I was really excited to get a chance to read this book! This book is amazing. The story captures your heart and doesn’t let go.  It is so well written and seamlessly blends two time periods together. It’s hard to decide which characters I liked best so I just think I like all of them.  There is just so much depth to each character. I feel like they are friends and I was sad when then story ended. Melanie Dobson created a compelling story that will stay with you for a long time. The message of faith, hope, forgiveness is weaved throughout the story. I think the reader can learn these truths right along with the characters.

I recommend this book to my friends and family.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion
