Product Description

In the twilight of the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands, the Germans have taken everything Cornelia had to give, even what was most precious to her. Now Gerrit Laninga-a man who puts God and country above all else-arrives at her house, needing help. She is terrified for herself and terrified for her family, but most of all, terrified of the pain she might feel again if she allows herself to love Gerrit. Her hope is to be free from her paralyzing fear.

Gerrit is a known and hunted Dutch Resistance member. When he comes to Cornelia's home for shelter, he's drawn to her strength and kindness. When he asks her to contact the local Resistance on his behalf, she refuses. Gerrit is determined to find a way to continue his underground work without putting Cornelia or her family in harm's way.

    Love the title and cover. The story was interesting especially since my parents lived not far from this area and experienced the war while in their early to middle twenties. Thus many of their stories, which are being told more frequently now, are similar to the experiences related in the book. Just one point that will be picked up by Canadian readers,the flag the Canadian soldiers had with them was the red ensign with a Union Jack in the corner. Our maple leaf flag became our official flag in 1965.

    I found this book to be an intriguing WWII novel to read. I can tell the author went to great lengths to cover the historical accuracy of the time period. I really liked the plot and Christian themes so I would give it five stars for that. But I felt like there was an overall lack of character development. Sadly, I couldn't seem to get a real good connection with who the characters were (other than with their hardships). The reading flow seemed kind of choppy too. Also a wee bit depressing, but to be expected from a WWII novel. I don't like to criticize (as I can't write a novel worth a darn anyways), but I am Just giving an honest opinion. Overall I would still recommend it for anyone who wants to read an interesting WWII novel.

    Wow! I think the cover of Snow on the Tulips is breathtaking, moving, and utterly beautiful. And now that I have read the book, I can say that the story inside the cover is equally so! What a wonderful book!

    The story is set in the Netherlands during WWII and is based on a combination of two true stories passed down through the author's family. Snow on the Tulips touched my heart deeply. Then, reading afterward that it was based on real events made it even more special to me.

    The characters in Snow on the Tulips feel so very real to me. Cornelia has experienced horrible pain in her life. Widowed four years earlier, she carries that pain around with her fear. Gerrit fights to undermine the Nazi's and weaken them, hoping to clear the way for the Allies to save their people. When Gerrit and Cornelia's paths cross and it is up to Cornelia to help save Gerrit, will she be able to put aside her fear and do what needs to be done?

    One of the things I enjoyed about this book is that the decisions that the characters had to make were not "cut and dried". Meaning, the choice was not necessarily an easy or clear one. The decision to face danger and try to help the Resistance was not an easy one to make. The characters had to weigh when to hide themselves away and when to put themselves out there to help others.

    Another very interesting part of this book was the side story of Anki and Piet. Piet believed in following the laws of the land and never lying. This included doing whatever the Nazi's set as a law, and he would not lie to protect people who were breaking the Nazi's law. Piet believed that he was following God's commands. These wonderful moral dilemmas are discussed throughout the book. When is it okay to lie?

    One of the most wonderful things about this book is the beautiful love story that develops between Cornelia and Gerrit. Cornelia lost her husband so tragically and believes she will never love another. When she begins to have feelings for Gerrit, the fact that he routinely puts his life in danger is very scary for her. She can't comprehend loving another man and then losing him. It is such a sweet love story.

    I would recommend this book to those who are interested in a truly unique telling of a story from WWII, that is laced with a love story that will touch your heart.

    This review was written for Snow on the Tulips.
    Snow on the Tulips is a beautiful story, but it is very emotionally in depth. This book is definitely not for the light of heart, but when finishing it a reader can look back an be in awe of the people who inspired the actual characters written!

    From the beginning I really felt I could relate to Cornelia with her wanting to stay safely tucked in her home and not acknowledging the fear that secretly gripped her heart. As she grew, healed, and let go throughout her journey she slowly became the woman God created her to be all along: Brave and courageous.

    My favorite quote from this novel that really defines the overall growth of the characters (and the story as a whole) is "Courage is not a feeling. Courage is an action." Spoken from one of the main characters, it really shapes the whole story for Cornelia and the sweet victory she receives. To get there though, there is a lot of suspense and of course romance endeavors as well as some hard-headness that the reader has to go through first!

    Overall, I really enjoyed this novel and was truly inspired. After closing the book I reflected on my own life and how fear is holding me back from living for God. I recommend Snow on the Tulips to anyone who is looking for a great historical novel that inspires the reader personally as well as entertain!

    *I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review and all thoughts are my own.*
