A Picture of Hope (Heroines of WWII) by Liz Tolsma

A Picture of Hope (Heroines of WWII)

A Photojournalist Risks Her Life to Save a Very Special Child 
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII. 
Journalist Nellie Wilkerson has spent the bulk of the war in London, photographing mothers standing in milk lines—and she’s bored. She jumps at the chance to go to France, where the Allied forces recently landed. There she enlists Jean-Paul Breslau of the French underground to take her to the frontlines. On the journey, they stumble upon a great tragedy, leaving a girl with special needs being orphaned. 
Can Nellie and Jean-Paul see the child to a safe haven while being pursued by the Nazis, who are pressed by the advancing Allies and determined to destroy all they can before they flee


A Picture of Hope is a book of the heart! There are heartbreaking scenes that you won't forget but there are also heartwarming moments that you'll long remember. Author Liz Tolsma has written a stunning story of hope and survival that features fictional characters and real heroes of WWII, and she's based it on the true accounts of the Allied Forces landing in France in 1944. Photographer Nellie Wilkerson wants a chance to see the war in action, but soon gets more than she bargained for. Can she and a French resistance fighter rescue a special-needs little girl before the Germans destroy everything in their path? Will they live long enough to explore the romantic feelings that they are beginning to feel toward each other?

I'm a fan of historical fiction, so I appreciate that Tolsma shares what is true, what is fiction, and the names of the people who actually lived this history. She possesses a special talent for fleshing out true facts and weaving them into a story that we all want to read, and A Picture of Hope is the perfect example. This is an exciting story with danger, suspense, and amazing characters, but the addition of hope, faith, and compassion make it an inspiring story to savor!

A Picture of Hope
is a fantastic addition to the Heroines of WWII series from Barbour Publishing and I recommend it to all who enjoy historical Christian romance.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Passionate might best describe Liz Tolsma. She loves writing, research, and editing. Her passion shone through in her first novel which was a double award finalist. On any given day, you might find her pulling weeds in her perennial garden, walking her hyperactive dog, or curled up with a good book. Nothing means more to her than her family. She’s married her high-school sweetheart twenty-eight years ago. Get her talking about international adoption, and you might never get her to stop. She and her husband adopted three children, including a son who is a U.S. Marine, and two daughters.
