Heartbreaking and Inspiring -- A Daring Escape

Tricia Goyer's A Daring Escape is the second in her London Chronicles series about World War II. The story is both heartbreaking and inspiring in its account of a very challenging aspect of the war's history -- the rescue of children from Czechoslovakia to England and other locations as Hitler's forces were overtaking their homeland.

Tricia's passion for World War II history and her in-depth research as she writes her books shine through in this story. While the characters and their stories might be fictional, they are based on and inspired by the courageous actions of real people who were willing to sacrifice for the well-being of so many. Tricia brings her story alive through her well-developed characters and their actions and feelings.

Fans of great historical fiction from the World War II era should be informed and inspired by this fascinating story.

About the Book:

Danger Closes In.
Can the Children be Rescued?
As the threat of World War II looms on the horizon, American Amity Mitchell is living a comfortable life abroad as a tutor in England. Life changes when an urgent telegram arrives from her brother, Andrew, summoning her to Prague. Nazi forces tighten their grip on the country, and Andrew’s efforts to help Jewish children escape Czechoslovakia grow desperate. Children’s lives are at risk. Amity knows she can’t ignore God’s call to join her brother’s cause.
Amity’s boss, Clark, arrives in Prague, urging her to return. Soon, he too finds himself helping prepare kindertransports bound for the safety of England. With the sound of German tanks rumbling over cobblestone streets, Amity and Clark race to save innocent lives. Will their prayers for deliverance be answered?
A Daring Escape is a gripping tale of hope, self-sacrifice, and the power of unrelenting love overcoming unspeakable hate.
