I have never heard of this author but I received this book for free and was willing to give it a try. I am so glad I did. I took a risk on an author I have never heard from and had an enjoyable time reading this book.
To take a risk is the central theme in this book. Hannah is the main character is this book. She is a not sure what path to take. Should she stay at her much loved home or go out of her comfort zone? Could she risk everything she knows for the unknown?
Adam is the young man she has known since she was a child. Should he risk everything to do what he thinks is right?
Josef risked everything to come to America and to trust Hannah.
Annalise is afraid to risk of letting go of her grief and to trust God.
Liesbet risked everything to love someone that no one liked or trusted.
Hannah's father risked leaving the ancestral home to save his family. Is this the right move for them?
I am not one to take risks. I do not go out too far from my comfort zone. But I came from a family that took a giant leap and risked coming to America. My mother and her family immigrated to America in the 1950's. It couldn't have been easy but it was worth the risk to them.
I absolutely loved this book! I am adding Jan Drexler to my must read author list.
