Remember the LiliesRemember the Lilies by Liz Tolsma
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Books like this have hooked me for a WWII-era historical reader. Liz Tolsma does a great job of transporting the reader back in time. I so admire The Greatest Generation and being able to read quality fiction like this depicting the people who survived that war is uplifting and humbling.

Irene Reynolds and Rand Sterling have nothing in common. She's the niece of a missionary. He's the owner of two of Manila's hottest night clubs. But war changes everything. Gathered like sheep and kept behind fences and walls, they strive to survive as civilian prisoners of war.

Heart-rending scenes of deprivation, hardship, and cruelty are softened only by the writer's ability to weave in the only true hope any of us have, the hope in Christ. A little slow in some places, stay with it because the story is worth it.
