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.
With equal doses of adrenaline and poignancy, Tricia Goyer's storytelling brings well-crafted characters to life in a graphically authentic World War II setting. She places readers not only behind enemy lines into the heat of battle, but also deep into the innermost sanctuary of the human heart.
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
