ABOUT THE BOOK
But truth is hard to come by in the fall of 1943, when Copenhagen is placed under Martial Law and Denmark’s Jews—including Hanne—suddenly face deportation to the Nazi prison camp at Terezin, Czechoslovakia. Days darken and danger mounts. Steffen’s faith deepens as he takes greater risks to protect Hanne. But are either of them willing to pay the ultimate price for their love?

I had never read anything by Robert Elmer before, so he was a new author to me. I really enjoyed this book. It is set during World War II in Denmark. I have read several books set during that time, but had never read one set in Denmark, so it was interesting to read what it was like for them during World War II. Though the people in the book are fictional, the events are not, and I learned a lot about Denmark, and about the Jews there.
After I finished the book, I was again filled with amazement and horror at what Hitler did to the Jews. If for no other reason, books like these are good to remind us of the evil that is in the world, and what even our country could become if good people sit back and do nothing.
