Remember The Lilies

Remember the Lilies, Liz Tolsma

About The Book:  Can Irene and Rand stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom?  Interred by the Japanese, missionary Irene Reynolds comes across a mysterious note while working at the censor's office. She memorizes the parts she must black out and delivers it to wealthy nightclub owner Rand Sterling. Before she knows what's happening, she's drawn into a web of secrets and danger.  Rand Sterling wants nothing more than to reopen his nightclubs once the war ends. But slimy Frank Covey wants his hand in the till---and has news that could threaten Rand's reputation if it became public. More importantly, beautiful and intriguing Irene Reynolds cannot discover this information if he expects to persuade her to become his wife.  When Irene is attacked by a sinister Japanese guard and their secrets are exposed, they must learn the true meaning of forgiveness---if they can stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom.

My Thoughts On The Book:  This was my first book by Liz Tolsma and definitely won't be my last.  If you are a fan of historical romance then this is a must read.  I was hooked by the end of chapter one and could not put the book down until I knew how it would end.  Her characters were believable and to be honest Rand was not my favorite person in the beginning.  He grows on you throughout the book.  Tolsma is a master storyteller and it was easy to tell that Tolsma had researched her subject well.  I learned a great deal about Japanese internment camps from this book.  This was a sweet, tender, and heartbreaking story of forgiveness.  Loved it and cannot wait to read more by Tolsma.
