Simple Faith Tour Page:
SIMPLE FAITH by Anna Schmidt is another exciting Peacemakers, Inspirational Historical Romance/Fiction set in 1943 Europe. #2 in “The Peacemakers” series, but can be read as a stand alone, although, I would recommend reading book 1, “All God’s Children”. Simple Faith, picks up where “All God’s Children” finished.
Quaker Anja Steinberg, had her whole world taken away in All God’s Children by the Nazis, after losing her Jewish husband and daughter to the Nazis. In, Simple Faith, she is helping Allied airmen escape from behind enemy lines. She feels this is her calling. Enter, Peter Trent, an American, who was shot down……
Second Lieutenant Peter Trent has been shot down near Anja’s grandfather’s farm. He must travel across enemy territory, through Western Europe to get back to England with the Gestapo hot on his trail. One of many problems, Anja, is falling in love with Peter, but this could endanger, that only her life, but the life of her precious ten-year old son,Daniel, as well.
Filled with tension, emotional turmoil, faith, healing, romance and love. You don’t want to miss a second of Simple Faith. Fast paced and filled with drama from the first page to the last.
Readers of historical fiction, World War II, the flight of Jews, sacrifice and romance. A brilliant tale of love, sacrifice, the war and healing. A must read! Received for an honest review.
