A University Student Smuggles Children Out of Amsterdam

Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
Helen Smit believed she was called by God to become a teacher. Little does she know that her care for kids will take a drastic turn for survival when the Germans occupy Amsterdam and Jewish children and parents begin to be deported. Now all she can think of is helping all the kids escape before it’s too late.
Erik Misman’s newfound love for Helen is tested when he joins a plot to help move Jewish children to a safe place in the countryside. If danger can foster a closer bond with Helen and save the lives of the little ones, he will do it all. But a German patrol that stumbles upon the farm where they are hiding with three children and a soldier who takes an unexpected interest in Helen, could well destroy their plans for safety and love.

    Save the Children

    Published by Sally Mander on Oct 08, 2022

    4 stars, Save the Children ESCAPE FROM AMSTERDAM (Heroines of WWII #7) by Lauralee Bliss I like how this series the Heroines of WWII captures the bravery of women as they fight to save all that is right and true, including in this novel, saving the children that have been affected by the Nazi machine. Thankfully, the Nazis didn't win in the end, but they did cause untold suffering to a great many innocents. This is the love story of Helen and Erik, as they struggle to be teachers in Amsterdam and rescue children who have been caught in the middle. Highly recommend. I thankfully received a complimentary copy of #escapefromamsterdam #heroinesofWWII from #barbourpublising I was under no obligation to post a review. #ww2 #WWII #survival #escape

    Poignant Historical Fiction!

    Published by Connie Saunders on Sep 12, 2022

    A young teacher who truly wants to make a difference undertakes a dangerous mission that will change her life forever! Helen Smit and the young man who is attracted to her set out to help some of her students escape from the Germans who are invading Amsterdam. We see Helen and Erik Misman as they struggle to keep three of the young Jewish students from being deported and what follows is a tale of terror, faith, and bravery. Helen has good motives, Erik is truly a Godly hero, and his faith is the grounding force for their efforts. Will they survive their efforts to save these students? "I think God wants to be our refuge and strength, no matter what. To keep us strong even with the challenges ahead. To give us peace even if we're afraid. To trust Him." I've read many stories about the Holocaust and this book is another painful reminder of the atrocities that occurred during this terrible time in history. Author Lauralee Bliss sets this story during the 1940s and her author's notes relate that over 100, 000 Jews were persecuted during the German occupation of the Netherlands. Her ability to weave fictional characters with true facts and real people gives readers a poignant historical fiction story to remember! Escape from Amsterdam is a worthy addition to the Heroines of WWII series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
