Chasing Shadows

Chasing ShadowsChasing Shadows by Lynn Austin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With everything going on in Ukraine, reading this account set during WWII in the Netherlands was just eerily similar to what we’re watching on the nightly news. A country overrun by the Nazis, towns overrun, bombs dropped, no food or water… it was hard to read.

But it’s a wonderful story!

Set during those horribly incredible years, it was a story of family and friends and faith. You’ll pull for the people caught up in such a terrible time, both Christian and Jewish. The setting is so well done, you feel like you’re there with the families. Austin did a fabulous job of keeping a large cast of characters all very individual, both in their backgrounds and personalities, as well as in their struggles with the situation.

I’m not a big WWI/WWII book reader, but this one is definitely worth reading.
