Remember the Lilies Review Part 1!!!!!!!

Remember the Lilies by Liz Tolsma

Book Description:
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 Opinion:
I just LOVE Liz's writing!  The way she tells stories just sucks you in and won't let you go!  Her topics are always interesting {although I've read we have her son to thank for this one's location so thank you Brian! :)  } and I love how she teaches history through fantastic characters and awesome stories!  This, once again, reflects the tragedies during the war and the outcome effecting even the most innocent!  The twists keep you wondering what's going on as you read, and the interesting characters just add to the mysteries!  I always LOVE how Liz wraps everything in Faith and her expressive descriptions makes you feel like your right there with the characters.  Pain, Faith, fear, danger, love, hope, and much more!  With settings I didn't expect, even after reading the book description, who will survive?

Songs to come:
