    This is another book by Lynn Austin that I could hardly put down. The story line captivated me. It was a wonderful story of hope and not giving up, therefore being a book of encouragement. I would highly recommend this book. It was wonderful from beginning to end and provided many hours of enjoyment for me.

    I've come to appreciate well-written novels that can transport me back in time in order to gain a new viewpoint of a different time period. Lynn Austin's novels always accomplish this for me. She has an amazing way of telling a story that will have you seeing history from a new perspective. In this novel, Lynn takes the reader down the path of two women's stories, one from America and another from Germany. Each has her own hardship that must be overcome to survive. Although compared with each other, the life of the one in America certainly doesn't compare to the life of the other in Germany. The two stories are interesting as they encounter the horrors of war and the lack of understanding of mental health. I appreciated this book and how it helped me empathize with the Jewish people and the veterans of WWII. It can be challenging for us as American citizens to understand all the veterans and Jews experienced since we are so far removed from such atrocities.

    If you're looking for a good story that will widen your understanding of WWII, pick up Lynn's new book and experience a greater appreciation for all that our veterans have done for our country.

    Best WW2 book I've ever read

    I've read all of Lynn Austin's books, and each one is captivating. Having said that, Long Way Home is her best book to date, and I've said that about each of her last five when they came out! Long Way Home is a gripping, can't-put-it-down story from page 1. I love the way each of her characters' stories move towards one another in a suspense-filled, powerful path of redemption. I've read a lot of WW2 fiction, and this is the best by far. Her amazing research about the period and events teaches me things I never knew before. Long Way Home is not just for female readers. It's for anyone wanting to dig deeper into WW2, PTSD, true friendship, challenging faith.

    This newest novel from Lynn Austin is a beautifully written WWII storyline with a different perspective than I have ever read before. The characters are all trying to find a sense of purpose in the midst of or after the war, and although they experience so many difficult elements of the repercussions of war, their storylines are also redemptive and hopeful. It is the only book I have read that covers the battle fatigue or PTSD and other mental health struggles so many people unfortunately experience, while also gracefully pointing to the Hope and light that can be found in Christ in the midst of this darkness. As always, there is a sense of mystery that kept me turning each page wanting to find out how the characters storylines all intersected, and once again, Lynn manages to tie their storylines together so beautifully in the end. As someone who loves animals and is traveling to New York State for the first time this summer, the horses, dogs, and landscape described in the story made me smile too!! I highly recommend this book!

    What an amazing novel that was equally heartbreaking and inspiring. I appreciated that even though it didn't shy away from tough subject matters, the overall tone of the book wasn't too depressing or heavy, but somehow hope shone through.

    I thought it was unique that the dual timelines were close together, one set during WWII and the other just afterwards but it all interconnected and unravelled perfectly. I found it fascinating learning more about the plight of Jewish refugees during the war. It was also quite shocking discovering how veterans with battle fatigue/PTSD were treated back then.

    I loved the message of reconciling faith when faced with terrible evil and suffering and thought the different character's faith journeys felt authentic. I fell in love with all of the characters and felt like they had become my friends by the end of the book!

    I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. All opinions expressed are solely my own.
