I've read quite a few novels set in this time period am always amazed at how certain people were able to overcome their fear in the face of pure evil, in order to help their fellow man, whom they probably had never even met before. Yet here they are, ordinary people taking risks that most of us pray we never have to take.
Robert Elmer's writing had a certain warmth, even though the plot was suspenseful.Steffen Peterson was the perfect "reluctant hero". I also loved secondary character Pastor Viggo, who kept a watchful eye on his friend. Hanne Abrahamson was lovely and brave, really brave, so what more could you ask for in a heroine?
Robert Elmer is one of my new favorites. I really liked his gentle style and endearing characters.
