Remember the Lilies by Liz Tolsma

Remember the Lilies by Liz Tolsma is an amazing read! I have a love for history and anytime I get a chance to dive into a book in a different time period…I’m set.

The history of WWII  has so many avenues to explore that one could spend years just on this historical event alone. When I had the opportunity to review Liz’z book Remember the Lilies set in the Santo Tomas Internment Camp I was in!

Having very little knowledge of what the people who were taken prisoner by the Japanese in the Philippines experienced this book opened my eyes to a whole other side of this war. How the Filipinos, Americans, British, and others were treated during that time…starvation, beatings, and the threat of death. The scarcity of medical supplies, clothing, and items of necessities.

The plight of children who were orphaned with no one to care for them.

This book also shows how when one lives out their faith in God…even in the worst of circumstances their actions can win others to the kingdom of Christ.

I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed reading this book. It’s a real page turner. If your a history buff, like myself, I’m sure you would love reading this book.

About the book:

Remember the Lilies (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

Can Irene and Rand stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom?

Interred by the Japanese, missionary Irene Reynolds comes across a mysterious note while working at the censor’s office. She memorizes the parts she must black out and delivers it to wealthy nightclub owner Rand Sterling. Before she knows what’s happening, she’s drawn into a web of secrets and danger.

Rand Sterling wants nothing more than to reopen his nightclubs once the war ends. But slimy Frank Covey wants his hand in the till—and has news that could threaten Rand’s reputation if it became public. More importantly, beautiful and intriguing Irene Reynolds cannot discover this information if he expects to persuade her to become his wife.
When Irene is attacked by a sinister Japanese guard and their secrets are exposed, they must learn the true meaning of forgiveness—if they can stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom.
