Editorial Reviews

Safe Haven is an incredibly moving story that explores a unique take on the popular World War II genre. I did not know about the displaced refugees that were brought to America towards the end of the war so I found that angle completely fascinating. And what a backdrop it makes as Schmidt weaves diverse tales of survival and hope among a cast of fascinating characters. At the forefront, Theo and Suzanne's friendship and eventual romance are the common thread that weave it all together. I became invested in their stories from the very first chapter. A compelling, stirring read that showcases the resiliency of humanity after the onslaught of despair. Truly remarkable.

Anna has woven history into her story so seamlessly, you feel you are reading an historical account of actual events, or maybe a biography. There is nothing formulaic in Anna's writing, her characters are believable and real, and her events match up with the history of the era. The friendship between Suzanne and Theo builds into love and becomes something very beautiful even with some ups and downs.

Schmidt's third book in the Peacemakers series is just as powerfully written as the first two installments. The prose style is masterful, and you'll get swept up in the sorrows and joys each character faces. Recurring characters' stories are intricately woven together to form a superbly intriguing tale.

    Really?! is what I always say when I get home from the bookstore and I realize a book is the 2nd or 3rd one in the series. I guess I am so excited about buying that book that I just forget. To say the least, that happened again. However, I am always looking for new authors to spice up my book routine and I thought I would give Anna Schmidt a try. I cant say I was impressed. From the beginning, I was very confused. The storyline is about Suzanne Randolph, who is a reporter and Theo Bridgewater, who was sent by his family to convince the authorities to let his aunt and uncle with their child, who are refuges, to stay in America. Plus, the storyline is also about the uncles family! I know exhausting, right?



    Also, you might know that Treo Bridgewater and his family where Quakers. While reading this book, a few red flags went up about their beliefs, so I did a little research of my own. From the Encyclopedia Britannica, I quote



    Quakers worship by gathering together in whatever place was available for periods of group silence. During the silence, the faithful attentively wait upon the Lord to exercise his power upon their lives; to lay on them the burden of the worlds suffering and their responsibility to respond to it. Anyone who felt he or she had been given a message during the silence could speak at the meeting.



    Now, I might be stepping on some toes here, but I believe God speaks to us through his word, the Bible. You can take whatever you want out of that quote so Ill move on.



    One thing that really bothered me was the way Anna Schmidt told the reader what the characters were wearing. At one point, she described Theo as wearing cotton-short sleeved shirt, jeans, and a baseball cap. Sounds like something men today would wear. Maybe not, I didnt do much research on that, but the point is that you and I might picture someone in the 40s a little bit differently. To wind this all down, this is probably the first and last book that I will read from Anna Schmidt. There all hundreds of good books out there, so I would recommend something different for you to try.

    As with the first two books in the series they start out fairly well but get pretty mundane and boring until the last few chapters.

    This was a wonderful read during WWII. I did not know that there were refugees that came over and almost didn't get to stay. This book in the Peacemakers books was well written and really kept my interest. It was happy and sad at the same time. I received a free copy from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    Safe Haven

    The Peacemakers 3

    By Anna Schmidt

    Suzanne Randolph made a mistake and her career is the causality. But she has a chance to resurrect both her career and her dream. Just under 1000 displaced refugees are being brought to America as guests of the President. But these guests are confined to a camp in Oswego, New York, and they will be sent back to wherever they came from when the war ends.

    Suzanne needs to find the story. The story that will make the difference in the lives of these people who have lost everything. The story that will erase her mistake. The story that will make her career. And meeting Theo Bridgewater just might be the story she's looking for - his aunt, uncle, and young cousin are three of these displaced people who have no future until the war's end.

    But there is more to Oswego than Suzanne expected and she just might rediscover the Light that was once the focus and center of her life. And maybe she'll find the peace she once had.

    Safe Haven is the perfect conclusion to the Peacemakers series. Unlike the first two books, this book is set entirely in America and not Europe. The war in Europe is drawing to a close and we are able to discover the fate of Joseph and Beth; Ilse, Franz, and Liesl; and Detlef Buch.

    Taking place over a little more than a year we discover little known facts about life in America for both the few displaced persons who managed to be allowed entry into the country and even the fate of POWs who were brought here. This is Historical fiction that will touch you and leave with a thirst to discover more about this troubled and turbulent time that left a mark on the world.

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Shiloh Run Press through BookFun/TBCN in exchange for my honest review.

    Safe Haven is the third book in the Peacemakers series. It can be read as a stand-alone but is best enjoyed when read as a series. The book is set in WWII. The book is well-written, interesting, setting is extensive, and the history is informative. There is suspense, romance, family, love, relationships, and hardships. Overall, I enjoyed the series tremendously.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
