“Daisies are Forever” by Liz Tolsma, book review

Prussia, 1945
For twenty year old Gisela, this war has gone on forever! And while she has tried to escape it, now it is biting at her heels. When word comes that the Russians will invade during the night, Gisela takes her 2 young nieces and tries to get to Berlin, where her mother is. But the journey is miserable: crowds, cold, ice, planes with bombs, and more unimaginable horrors. But she presses on.

Along the road she hears a man speaking with a British accent, and poses as his wife to protect them both. Mitch joins their rag-tag band of travelers. He lends support and help as he can. And as they endure even more terrors of war, they become closer friends.

This book is well written and details what the people of this time and place endured. While there was terrible death and destruction, the author is careful to not overwhelm with details that over shadow the heroes of the time. This book is a mini history lesson into the details of WWII.
