Review: Heroines of WWII: Escape from Amsterdam by:Lauralee Bliss

Escape from Amsterdam (Heroines of WWII)

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

A University Student Smuggles Children Out of Amsterdam

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Helen Smit believed she was called by God to become a teacher. Little does she know that her care for kids will take a drastic turn for survival when the Germans occupy Amsterdam and Jewish children and parents begin to be deported. Now all she can think of is helping all the kids escape before it’s too late.
Erik Misman’s newfound love for Helen is tested when he joins a plot to help move Jewish children to a safe place in the countryside. If danger can foster a closer bond with Helen and save the lives of the little ones, he will do it all. But a German patrol that stumbles upon the farm where they are hiding with three children and a soldier who takes an unexpected interest in Helen, could well destroy their plans for safety and love.

My Review:

 First of all, let me say I am loving this series. It is really good!

 I like stories like this because the time period becomes more real to me. It opens up a lot of things either you werent aware of or just didnt have the answers to. Helen and Erik are more involved in this war than they realize. It litarlly touches everyone. Each and every person in the war zone or around it. But when Erik agrees to take on an even more active role, it seems his life will evolve and hes not so sure he is ready for something like that.

A great addition to the series and as always a very captivating read!
