I am reviewing a copy of Hidden Among the Stars through Tyndale House Publishers and Netgalley:
It’s 1938 when Austrian Max Dornbach promises to help his Jewish Friends hide their most valuable possessions as the Nazi troops are sweeping through Vienna. He smuggled the items from the Nazi’s, and hides them at his picturesque summer estate at Hallstatt. He asks for Annika Knopf, his friend from childhood as well as the caretakers daughter for help. She readily agrees, still in love with Max. After Max snuggles in Lucia Weiss, a young Jewish Woman to hide in the castle. It not only Annika’s feelings but could put everything at jeopardy. Especially after the Nazi’s come to this state to find both the treasure and Lucia gone.
Eight decades later Callie Randall is happy and content with her quiet life, she runs a bookstore with her sister and reaching out into the world with her blog. But she finds a cryptic list in an old edition of Bambi, one that connects her to Annika’s story and possibly to the long buried story of a good friend. Digging into the past means Callie must venture out of her safe world of her making to find answers and possibly even now.
I give Hidden Among the Stars five out of five stars!
