A New York Tribune reporter, Mary is covering a dangerous WWII bombing raid over Germany when her plane crashes. Her colleague Lee rushes to her rescue, but their daring escape is interrupted when a priest asks them to care for a Jewish infant taken from a Lebensborn hospital---a breeding facility for Aryan babies. Can they smuggle the child to freedom across enemy lines? 350 pages, softcover from Moody.
Arms of Deliverance is the fourth and final chapter in the thrilling World War II series. Mary and Lee have gone from best friends to competing WWII journalists, but a bombing raid gone wrong puts Mary's life at risk and sends Lee on a heroic rescue attempt through the fierce teeth of combat. Then, amidst an adventurous struggle for freedom, they uncover the story of the unspeakable Lebensborn atrocity.

In Tricia Goyers latest novel, Arms of Deliverance: A Story of Promise, three women travel toward their destiny as they struggle to survive in war-torn Europe. Fears and insecurities trap all three women until they place their lives in Gods hands. Goyer does an excellent job braiding three separate stories to form a cohesive whole. Her main characters, Mary, Lee, and Katrine, are strong women with human flaws. These flaws add a realistic flavor to the story.
In 1944, Americans Mary Kelly and Lee ODonnelly are rival newspaper reporters. As they struggle to find a niche in an occupation where men rule, both are sent overseas to bring a female point of view to the war. Eventually, Lees providence sends her sailing toward Normandy and Utah Beach. On assignment aboard Destinys Child, a B-17, Mary and the crew are forced to bail out over Belgium. Within German-occupied territory, some of the crew are able to escape while others are captured or killed.
Meanwhile, Katrine, a Czech Jew, is in hiding. Because of her blonde hair and blue eyes, she is able to masquerade as an Aryan. She falls in love with a married German officer, Hendrick Schwartz, and compromises her Jewish beliefs. Unaware Katrine is a Jew, he sends her to Lebensborn, the prestigious home for expectant German mothers, when she becomes pregnant.
Arms of Deliverance is a well-wrought story that balances the stark bloody mess of war with hope, the extermination of a race with new life, and the winds of hatred with the gentle breath of promise from our Heavenly Father. As Mary said, Could it be possible that I dont have to figure out this world and my place in it on my own? Could it be that I only need to focus on You?
Readers should keep in mind that there are a few graphic scenes depicting war and the issue of the unwed mother, which may bother some. I would recommend this book for mature readers. Victoria Borgman, Christian Book Previews.com
