Book Beat – Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma

What if saving the life of a stranger could cost you your own life?

Snow on the Tulips by Liz Tolsma takes place in Nazi-occupied Holland in World War II. Dutch resistance fighter Gerrit Laninga is caught by the Germans and taken to the canal to be executed. But he survives and drags himself to a nearby house. Young widow Cornelia de Vries doesn’t know what to do with the wounded stranger on her stoop. To protect him would endanger her life – and that of her little brother Johan who lives in hiding so the Nazis don’t haul him into forced labor. Cornelia has no choice – she must help this man. As she nurses him back to health, they develop feelings for each other, but he also prods her conscience. Should she continue living as if invisible, to keep safe – or should she fight against evil.

With a tender romance, a gripping plot, and a well-researched setting, Snow on the Tulips drew me in to the harrowing uncertainty of life in the Netherlands under Nazi rule. Liz Tolsma’s beautiful story kept me up at night—not just wondering what would happen to her endearing characters, but wondering what I would do in similar circumstances. Do not miss this book!

    Great interview on CAN today. Liz’s book sounds like a wonderful story in a setting most of us know a little something about. It’s reachable. And I love tender romance!
