Daisies are Forever

Daisies are Forever
Liz Tolsma
Gisela, an American, is living with her cousin in Prussia when they receive news that the Russians are about to invade their little town. She joins the hundreds of other people fleeing. As she tries to find a place for her young nieces and the the other refugees in her group she rescues a young British officer. Mitch had escaped a POW camp and is now on the run from the Germans. Gisela poses as his wife to keep him safe. The journey to reach Berlin and then England will take every ounce of strength and faith the two posses. Can they come through this war and find beauty and love at the other end?

War stories are almost always rather dark in nature. This story was no exception. The cover was dark and the story had very little uplifting except the spiritual message. There were so many characters that I had a really hard time keeping track of them in the beginning. The message was beautiful and the author did a great job of portraying what war was like from both sides. But I was often lost in the confusion of so many characters and the unrealistic aspects of some of the story. I also didn't really get a feeling of romance either. 

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Blogger in exchange for my honest review.
