Have you read this book? This book is on my TBR must read soon pile! I have read other books by Melanie Dobson and they are awesome! Happy Reading! Becca
- As war rips through the heart of Holland, childhood friends Josie van Rees and Eliese Linden partner with a few daring citizens to rescue Eliese’s son and hundreds of other Jewish children who await deportation in a converted theater in Amsterdam. But amid their resistance work, Josie and Eliese’s dangerous secrets could derail their friendship and their entire mission. When the enemy finds these women, only one will escape. Seventy-five years later, Ava Drake begins to suspect that her great-grandfather William Kingston was not the World War II hero he claimed to be. Her work as director of the prestigious Kingston Family Foundation leads her to Landon West’s Ugandan coffee plantation, and Ava and Landon soon discover a connection between their families. As Landon’s great-grandmother shares the broken pieces of her story, Ava must confront the greatest loss in her own life―and powerful members of the Kingston family who will do anything to keep the truth buried.

Today on my blog I shared from Something Needs to Change by David Platt. Right now I’m about to start The Killing Tide by Dani Pettrey so I’ll share the first line from that here: “Fire ripped through Finn’s right shoulder, ricocheting down his arm.” Hope you have a great weekend!
