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.

Marilyn's thoughts:  There are not enough words to describe the superb writing capturing

 the time, feelings,

faith of the characters and events that played out in Escape from Amsterdam. This WWII

heroine story found me in the midst of fields of tulips, feeling the despair and victories of

the people in The Netherlands as Germany invaded their country.

Helen Smit and Erik Minger’s faith and dedication to assist in saving Jewish children from

the Nazis was well researched and penned in a heart touching as well as heart wrenching

tale as to all the Dutch people endured. The faith message is strong throughout the book

showing the depth their relationship to God meant to them as they clung to it during the

troublesome times they were facing. Fans of Christian historical and WWII era will not

want to miss reading this book. It is one of the top Christian Historical fictions I’ve read

where the faith message and scriptures are used throughout the entire story.

Thank you to Barbour Publisher for a complimentary copy of this awe-inspiring book

without any obligation to write a positive review. I have shared my own personal opinion.
