Daisies Are Forever Book Review

Book Review of Daisies are Forever
  by Liz Tolsma

REVIEW BY: L. Bankhead

      If you enjoy historical (circa 1945) fiction, you will truly enjoy this new novel by Liz Toslma.  She expertly takes the real life stories of two German women who survived World War II and the subsequent retaliation on Germany; and joins them into one story of one woman that takes the horrific journey from Heiligenbeil, East Prussia to Berlin, Germany. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat as the bloodshed is unimaginable and the turns are surprising, but it is also full of heart and the will of the human spirit to survive.  God's love, and the hope of a better future urge the characters on and into the unknown.  You will certainly come to love Mitch, think the elderly sisters are amusing and adorable, and want to rock poor Gisela to sleep on your lap.  I recommend the book for mature teens and older.  There is much reference to killing and rape.  This is an excellent story, from an exceptional best-selling author.
