In 1944, blond and blue-eyed Jewess Hadassah Benjamin feels abandoned by God when she is saved from a firing squad only to be handed over to a new enemy. Pressed into service by SS-Kommandant Colonel Aric von Schmidt at the transit camp of Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia, she is able to hide behind the false identity of Stella Muller. However, in order to survive and maintain her cover as Aric's secretary, she is forced to stand by as her own people are sent to Auschwitz.
Suspecting her employer is a man of hidden depths and sympathies, Stella cautiously appeals to him on behalf of those in the camp. Aric's compassion gives her hope, and she finds herself battling a growing attraction for this man she knows she should despise as an enemy.
Stella pours herself into her efforts to keep even some of the camp's prisoners safe, but she risks the revelation of her true identity with every attempt. When her bravery brings her to the point of the ultimate sacrifice, she has only her faith to lean upon. Perhaps God has placed her there for such a time as this, but how can she save her people when she is unable to save herself?
"I absolutely loved this book. For Such a Time kept me up at night, flipping the pages and holding my breath wanting to know what would happen next. Based on the Biblical book of Esther, the story takes the reader to a concentration camp inside World War II Czechoslovakia, where a young Jewish woman has captured the attention of the Kommandant and has the opportunity to save her people, much as Esther did in the Biblical account. The story is gripping, compelling, and I dare anyone to close the cover before the last suspenseful page."--#1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Debbie Macomber
"When I finished Kate Breslin's novel for the first time, I had an urge to flip back to page one and start reading all over again. It's that good. For Such a Time is an intimate portrait painted on a grand scale, bringing to life the drama and pain of suffering with the triumph and joy of freedom. This book deserves a wide audience, and newcomer Breslin has a bright future."--#1 New York Times bestselling author, Susan Wiggs
"An engrossing and inspiring story from a talented new writer."--Bestselling Author, Sheila Roberts
smileyOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A BlessingFebruary 25, 2015smileyOntario, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I don't believe I could love this story more if I tried. It was achingly sweet; so beautiful yet so hard to read what those people had to go through. I am amazed at how the story fit together and how the author can make you fall in love with an SS officer in a Nazi concentration camp. Never in a million years would I thought I could do such a thing but God's grace shines through and His love of humanity slowly melts your heart. Great job Mrs. Breslin, I cannot wait to see where God takes your stories next!
Charlene4 Stars Out Of 5entertainingFebruary 14, 2015CharleneQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I usually do not like movies or books about slavery or Nazism because it angers and saddens me. But I was curious how the author would weave the story of Esther with the back drop of World War II and concentration camps. I thought it was done well. I am passing this book along to a friend.

Julieanne MillerOregonAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Don't read at bedtime! :)September 15, 2014Julieanne MillerOregonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Like any stories set during WWII in the Nazi arena, this is a tension-filled, scary, conflictive tale of the Jewish people suffering at the hands of their German tormentors.
Aric von Schmidt is the SS Kommandant Colonel in charge of a detention center for Jews: Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia. He is a formidable officer with much experience and many bravery awards for his service. On a visit to another camp, Dachau, he comes face-to-face with a young woman, Stella Muller, who is about to be shot to death, but he is so impressed with her determined and defiant look as she stares at her would-be killers, that he stops the shooting and instead, secrets her out of that camp and takes her to his own home, just outside of Theresienstadt.
Aric lives in a world of cruelty and subterfuge and is at risk for making this beautiful young woman his own personal secretary. As she is required to do the unthinkable, such as typing up lists of people in the camp who are bound for Auschwich and the gas chambers there, she attempts to persuade Aric (who has fallen in love with her) into a softening attitude towards these people. It only creates a lot of trouble for her and much suspense in the story.
For Such A Time is somewhat parallel to the story of Esther in the Bible, and many verses from that story are used as many events in this story go forward. Stellas uncle, who raised her from the age of five, is also in the camp. When she discovers this, there is much more suspense. It is a very exciting wartime novel with many surprises, clear to the very end. Do not read at bedtime!
