Songbird Under A German Moon by Tricia Goyer blog tour review

The year is 1945. The war is over and 21-year-old Betty Lake has been invited to Europe to sing in a USO tour for American soldiers who now occupy Hitler's Germany. The first nights performance is a hit. Betty becomes enthralled with the applause, the former Nazi-held mansion they're housed in and the attention of Frank Witt, the US Army Signal Corp Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when Betty's dear friend, Kat, turns up missing. Betty soon realizes Franks photographs could be the key to finding Kat. Betty and Frank team up against post-war Nazi influences and the two lovebirds' hearts may find the each other.

But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.

My Thoughts:

Songbird Under A German Moon was a charming love story set against the back drop of post war Germany. With strong, witty, faith-filled characters that drew you deep into the plot which was rich both in historical detail and suspense. Tricia Goyer’s colorful plot springs to life as her characters face heartbreaking situations. One of my favorite WWII era books. Rich in historical detail, that made me wonder about what post war Germany must have been like. Each time I pick up a book by Tricia Goyer I know that I will experience an amazing work of Christian fiction that will inspire, entertain, and most of all remind me that God is always in control.
