About the book:
A Man. A Brother. A Traitor.
The war has taken everything Micah Wilson has ever held dear, and with all his being he wishes he could do something to stop the heartache. But he often wonders if he’ll
ever be able to move on after the war or forget the brother who left six years before. How can God still have a plan when it seems that the world around him is falling to pieces, to say nothing of his own heart?
Ann Sullivan has seen two brothers changed by the war. And she’s resolved to do something to stop the pain she sees in their eyes from becoming a reality for so many others. The world is on the brink of Normandy when her nursing unit is shipped to England and, while there, an unexpected encounter promises to change her own life . . . forever. But it’s only the beginning. As the war in Europe rages on, Ann is caught in the crossfires. And when the unthinkable happens, she comes face to face with the evil of the Third Reich. Is it possible that the reality of it all is more deadly than even her worst nightmares?
Erich Essler never questioned his duty to his country. All his life he’s struggled to live up to his father’s expectations and bring honor to the Essler name. But when the man he thought of as his only friend turns out to be the enemy, he can no longer rid himself of the questions that continue to torment him. Is what he’s doing really honorable? And does he owe his loyalty to his country . . . or a higher power?
Freedom for Europe dawns on the distant horizon. But in the midst of the fight, four lives will be forever changed, and their loyalty to God and Country brought into question.
About the Author:
Jesseca is a daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano. And writing, of course! At an early age, words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.

First off I want to just say this book was…amazing! I was so close to tears at many points (and that’s impressive for me). After reading the first two of Jessica’s books and hearing that there was a book tour I just HAD to be part of it! The morning after I received the book I started reading it and couldn’t stop until I had reached the end.
Favorite character? Now, this might seem like an odd answer once you’ve started reading the book but I really enjoyed the character Arnold and Erich…mostly because of how they act in the ending…why you ask? Well, you’ll have to read the book and find out!!
I’d give this book 5 stars as it was well written, well portrayed, and the characters had such meaning! My favorite thing about the book as it didn’t leave me with that uncomfortable feeling that many books in stores leave you with.
The book had a great message in it! The characters talked with such meaning about their faith to others but didn’t force their beliefs until the other person was ready.
I’d recommend it for 12 and up (though depending on the families decision). This book was super clean and awesome and also displayed the war scenes very well. I’m looking forward to hopefully reading more of Jessica’s work in the near future!
