Product Description

As World War II rages, Danish Lutheran pastor Steffen meets young Jewish nurse Hanne---and is reluctantly swept into the movement to save Denmark's Jews. In doing God's work rather than just talking about it, Steffen's heart is transformed---but when Hanne is taken to a Nazi camp, will it be broken, too? 352 pages, softcover from Abingdon.

Publisher's Weekly

With combined sales exceeding a half a million books, inspirational author Elmer has transitioned nicely from his previous vocations as a pastor, reporter, and an ad copywriter. Elmer’s (The Duet) newest subject focuses on the Danish perspective of the Nazi takeover and extradition of the Jews. Written in quick-step style, Elmer does a fine job mixing a bit of joviality to help balance out the weighty and disturbing subject matter of this particular period of Danish history. The text centers on a burgeoning romantic relationship between Jewish nurse Hanne Abrahamsen and Danish Lutheran pastor Steffen Peterson. With a casual, impersonal faith, Pastor Steffen is challenged by his younger brother Henning’s commitment to the Resistance. Similarly, Steffen finds himself drawn to nurse Hanne and her courageous zeal to help the afflicted. Circumstances throw the two together and each begins a deeper, more introspective search for truth amidst life, death, and rampant suffering. Elmer’s work is so unaffected and genuinely heartfelt that readers find they are willingly reawakened to the horrors of genocide. (Apr.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Lovely, compassionate, inspirational and so much more - this story is about a Jewish girl who was taken to one of the concentrating camps and survived. It was sad and totally unfair but the fact that it has somewhat a happy ending i really liked it.

    I've lived through WWII as a youngster old enough to understand what was happening. My interest in the Holocaust and the persons who lived through has been important to me ever since I learned of it back in 1945.

    Beautiful title and cover. Wildflowers of Terezin, is a multilayer factual novel around the lives of Hanne a Jewish WWII nurse and young Lutheran Pastor Steffan. When Stefan is mistakingly accused of being part of the Resistance, and injured in crossfire, Hanne is unknowingly attracted to protect the handsome priest. A powerfully true story of suspense, love, loss, religion, culture and how unique we are, yet are the same in God's eyes. A very moving book. Highly Recommended!

    This review was written for Wildflowers of Terezin - eBook.
    World War II has always been one of my favorite reading topics, perhaps because I had four family members who fought to stop the evil that was trying to conquer the world at that time, one of those buried under one of the little white crosses above Normandy beach.

    The author has taken actual events and places and woven them into a poignant tale of three cultures, Jewish, Christian and pure evil. It is amazing how God's people will dare to rise above all obstacles to aid the fallen in the face of total brutality, often at great risk to themselves and all they hold dear. This is a story that will grip your heart and your soul. You will find yourself holding your breath for the ending , as this story spans the continent of Europe. I loved the characters and the setting and the relationships--it is a must read.

    Wildflowers of Terezin is set in Denmark during World War II. Terezin is a labor camp in Czechoslovakia where many Danish Jews were deported by the Gestapo. The book tells the story of nurse Hanne and her experiences while hiding and helping other Jews escape until she is captured.

    My daughter is like me and loves the World War II time period. That's what attracted her to the book. She felt like she was Hanne as she read, experiencing all the heroine did. "It's a great book about faith in our Creator and love." The pacing kept my daughter's attention. She literally couldn't put it down, carrying it around the house and reading it in the car. She said the best part of the book comes at the end -- but I won't tell you why and spoil it for you.

    Now I'm eager to read this book!

Author/Artist Review

Author: Robert Elmer
Located in: Pullman, WA
Submitted: April 15, 2010

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Robert Elmer has written more than 50 books for youth and adults, building on his experience as a news editor and reporter, advertising copywriter, teacher, and assistant pastor. When he’s not writing (or sailing) he’s a mentor and editorial board member for the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, and has spoken to young audiences across North America. Robert and his wife Ronda live in the Pacific Northwest.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  My Danish heritage has flavored my interest in writing historical fiction, and I’ve always been interested in history. Perhaps it’s that way with children of immigrants. There’s a strong tie back to the old country, and when my parents and my grandmother told stories about their life in Denmark, I knew there were things there I had to pass along somehow. What was it like during the occupation years? What was it like to be a student back then, a kid? Were there lessons for us that we need to remember today? I wanted so much to tell these stories, both in the “Young Underground” novels for kids, and now in Wildflowers of Terezin.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I want my readers to lose themselves momentarily in the real world where faith matters and God is in control. Outside of my books, faith of course still matters and God is still in control. Problem is, sometimes it can get so foggy out here, it’s tough to really see. In my stories I pull away the fog and show let readers experience the world the way it’s supposed to be, whether that’s in the past, present, or future

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Did I say how excited I am about Wildflowers of Terezin? Maybe you’ve heard other writers say about a story that “this is the story I was born to write.” Well, this is probably the story I was born to write. My heart’s all there in this one, along with my roots, my passion, and everything I know about crafting a story. I held nothing back. It’s the best I can do at this point in my career. And this is, as Romans 12 puts it, my “spiritual act of worship.” Please read it.
