{{Book Review}} Remember the Lilies by Liz Tolsma

Be swept away to exotic places in Liz Tolsma's Remember the Lilies! Filled with mystery, romance, and a race to find a family before it's too late, you'll want to keep the pages turning.
Irene and Rand come from very different walks of life. Will they find common ground in their fight to survive?
Irene has grown up in the jungle as a missionary with her Aunt Anita, but now she and countless others are imprisoned by Japanese soldiers at the Santo Tomas Internment Camp in the Philippines. Irene and her aunt are safe there, and she keeps busy with her duty of delivering censored messages to the camp's prisoners, but like everyone else, she prays for the war to end and for her freedom.
Rand is a wealthy, womanizing American, whose attempted escape from the internment camp has put himself and others in danger. When Rand and Irene's Aunt Anita meet one another in the hospital, Irene learns more of his story and her heart is determined to save his family.
But the danger outside the walls of the hospital worsens every day, and life in this exotic place is anything but luxurious. Can Irene find Rand's family before they disappear forever? And can a humble missionary woman and an arrogant man find common ground in the face of their biggest fears?

*My Review*
I've never really been a big fan of WWII-era historical type books, but Liz Tolsma does a great job of transporting the reader back in time.I absolutely adore this book. 

In this book there are Heart-rending scenes of deprivation, hardship, and cruelty that are softened  by the LIz's ability to write about the only true hope any of us have...and that is the hope in Jesus Christ. 

I admit this book was a little slow in some places, but stay with it because the story is worth it...I promise!
