In a time of unprecedented darkness and fear, Cornelia must decide if saving a stranger’s life is worth risking her own.
the twilight of the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands, the Germans
have taken everything Cornelia had to give, even what was most precious
to her. Now Gerrit Laninga—a man who puts God and country above all
else—arrives at her house, needing help. She is terrified for herself
and terrified for her family, but most of all, terrified of the pain she
might feel again if she allows herself to love Gerrit. Her hope is to
be free from her paralyzing fear.
Gerrit is a known and hunted
Dutch Resistance member. When he comes to Cornelia’s home for shelter,
he’s drawn to her strength and kindness. When he asks her to contact the
local Resistance on his behalf, she refuses. Gerrit is determined to
find a way to continue his underground work without putting Cornelia or
her family in harm’s way.
When things start to unravel and
Gerrit’s life depends on her actions, she must summon her courage and
learn to depend on the perfect love that drives out all fear. But will
her new love be snatched away before it has a chance to bloom?
