About the Book
Daisies Are Forever
  Daisies Are Forever
Gisela must hold on to hope and love despite all odds in the midst of a war-torn country.
Gisela Cramer is an American living in eastern Germany with her cousin Ella Reinhardt. When the Red Army invades, they must leave their home to escape to safety in Berlin.
However, Ella is a nurse and refuses to leave, sending her young daughters with Gisela. During their journey, Gisela meets Mitch Edwards, an escaped British POW. She pretends she is his wife in order to preserve his safety among other Germans, especially one wounded German soldier, Kurt, who has suspicions about Mitch’s identity. Kurt also has feelings for Gisela and tries to uncover the truth about her “marriage.”
Their journey to Gisela’s mother in Berlin is riddled with tragedy and hardship, but they strive to keep Ella’s daughters safe so they can reunite with their mother. During the journey Gisela and Mitch begin to develop feelings for one another beyond friendship. They reach Berlin, but their struggles are far from over. Gisela and Mitch must learn to live for the day and find hope in the darkest of circumstances.
In this moving, historically accurate portrayal of WWII Germany, the characters learn that, even with destruction all around them, some things last forever.

My Review:
I was lucky enough to read other books by this author, and I knew that this book was going to be rich in history, love, and faith. What I liked the most was the faith that the characters had in each other and in God. Especially during such devastating times. There are so many things that happen during a war, and most people remember the big stuff. It was refreshing to read about normal people during War World II, and how they did unbelievable actions that helped others. The only thing that I did not like was that Ella gave her kids to her cousin, knowing what a treacherous trip they were going to take. However she was a nurse, and how do you let people die when you know you can save them? I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
