A Picture of Hope

Anytime I read a book that is based during war I think of my Mom or her relatives.  My Mom was born in England.  She was there during World War I.  She has told me her experiences as a young child during that time.  This book - A Picture of Hope-  brings us to a terrible time in our history.  The unimaginable happened.  

Nellie was a photographer and felt that she was being left out of the important news stories.  She was determined to change that.  In doing so, she landed up in Nazi-controlled France.  In France, she met Jean-Paul, part of the French Underground.  

Nellie and Jean-Paul's journey was dangerous but absolutely necessary.  They risked all to help others.  I quickly turned the pages as I was so engrossed in their story.  Would they survive?  

It was upsetting to read the atrocities that occurred in that time.  But it is so important to not forget.  

I received this book from Barbour Books to review.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV / Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths
