Kort biografi
Lynn Austin koesterde altijd al een diep verlangen om te schrijven, maar jarenlang kwam het er niet van. Toen ze naar Canada verhuisde vanwege het werk van haar man, gebruikte ze de lange winters om te gaan schrijven. Tegenwoordig is ze full-time auteur en houdt ze regelmatig lezingen.

Austin is een echt familiemens. Een levendig gesprek tussen Lynn, haar moeder en haar 98-jarige oma over de veranderde rol van de vrouw in de loop der jaren, inspireerde haar tot het schrijven van haar eerste grote roman: Eva’s dochters. Ze is blij verrast met het succes van haar boeken in Nederland, waar al 120.000 exemplaren hun weg naar de lezer vonden.

Lynn Austin woont met haar man Ken in de buurt van Chicago. In haar vrije tijd geniet ze van lezen, wandelen, de concerten van haar man bezoeken en zo veel mogelijk oude ruïnes bekijken.

Lynn Austin is een van de belangrijkste fictie-auteurs van dit moment. Naast contemporain en historisch werk schrijft zij ook bijbelse romans. Haar trilogie over Hizkia wordt nu gevolgd door een tweedelige serie over Manasse. Lynn Austin schreef diverse succesvolle romans en is een veelgevraagd spreekster op conferenties, bezinnings bijeenkomsten en andere manifestaties van kerken en onderwijsinstellingen. Zij woont met haar man en drie kinderen in Illinois.



This book leaves me speechless. It touched me on so many levels I don’t even know where to begin. I love ALL of Lynn Austin’s books and right now I believe this is her best.

This novel about the courageous people of The Netherlands and how they fought for the Jews and for their country’s freedom is inspiring. I cried, I felt joy, I felt anger, I found forgiveness. I saw how those people went through horrors yet still hung on to their faith and hope for freedom. This is a part of history that should never be forgotten. These people should never be forgotten.

Just two quotes from the book:
“How can God remain silent and do nothing in the face of all this evil?” she asked.
“He isn’t silent as long as we’re His voice and His hands.”

… “nothing any of us will ever face, now or in the future, is out of God’s control.”
… (mer)

A great story based on our past history. This book must have been written after a lot of research by the author. Good job.

This book was so close to being a five star read for me. The only reason I knocked off one star was due to the timeline. This book is set over six years, but after the first year or two, the character growth became stagnant.

Tropes: Resistance in WWII, Coming back to God

Content: characters sent to concentration camp (conditions described in detail), death of family members, bombing, kissing

The whole time I was reading this, I kept on thinking, "This feels like a second book." As it turns out, it is.

You can read this as a standalone like I did, but I do wish that I had read the first in order to know the characters better.

Tropes: friends-to-more, widowed single parent

Content: mentions a child born out of an affair

4 Stars

*I receieved a copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own and a positive review was not required.
