This is the first book written by the author that I have read and it won’t be the last. I enjoyed reading about Claire, a young woman whose definition of trust and love is challenged at every turn.
Until We Find Home is about an American young woman who wants to be a part of the French Resistance but finds herself stranded on the English shores with five French Jewish children who she smuggles across the channel before the Nazis find them. With no place to go Claire decides to take them to her estranged aunt’s estate in England’s Lake District, who also takes in German Jewish children and an American, David Campbell. While Claire does agree to take care of the children she rescued, they are not her priority, but more of a responsibility until one day when one of the youngest children runs away. Through all of the highs and lows of emotions, Claire learns to love and be loved.
Threads of love, forgiveness, salvation and faith are woven through out the book. I love how the author used characters such as Beatrix Potter and C.S. Lewis appear in the book. If you love reading about World War II and the struggles people faced such as rationing of food, shortages, grief and illness, you will enjoy the book.
I received from the publisher, Tyndale in exchange for an honest review.
