A ROSE FOR THE RESISTANCE by Angela Couch, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay

Exceptional story of the courage during the German occupation near Normandy, France. The author depicts young Rosalie and her teen brother, Marcel, fighting the only way they knew how: helping the Resistance. The story is fraught with danger and is full of the real history of the region. Ms. Couch incorporates a great love story and shows a re-awakening of faith in the hero and heroine. Rosalie holds on to the scripture she gleans from a discarded Bible and remembers a selfless love of her father who died as a POW. “If we have no control over what will come, then leave it to the Only one who does.”

The author gives us a picture of a German soldier, Franz, whose heart is not with the oppressors and who can see the true motives behind the German occupation. “I remember you and your brother, and the feeling of doing the right thing. And then watching you, seeing your courage. You remind me of who I used to be. Who I want to be.”

The reason I like stories about WWII is because I always learn something. Books like these remind us that we should never forget what happened, hopefully in order to never relinquish our freedoms again. To stand together for what is good and right.

A French Woman and German Soldier Create a Truce
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
With her father in a German POW camp and her home in Ste Mere Eglise, France, under Nazi occupation, Rosalie Barrieau will do anything to keep her younger brother safe. . .even from his desire to join the French resistance. Until she falls into the debt of a German solder—one who delivers a wounded British pilot to her door. Though not sure what to make of her German ally, Rosalie is thrust deep into the heart of the local underground. As tensions build toward the allied invasion of Normandy, she must decide how much she is willing to risk for freedom.
