Mrs. Tuesday's Departure

"Mrs. Tuesday's Departure" is high in my TBR stack! (FTC disclosure: I have been sent a free ecopy of the book in exchange for an honest review.) I have just finished reading "In the Garden of Beasts" by Erik Larson and this will kind of pick up where that left off. Also, it has a bit of a "Sophie's Choice" air about it although, thankfully, it sounds less dark. Below is a description -- what do you think?

Hungary's fragile alliance with
Germany kept Natalie, a renowned children's book author, and her family out of
harm's way for most of the war. Now as the F├╝hrer's desperation grows during
the waning years of the conflict, so does its threat. Natalie's younger sister,
Ilona, married a Jewish man, putting both her and her young daughter, Mila, in
peril; Natalie's twin sister, Anna, is losing her already tenuous hold on
reality. As the streets of Budapest thrum with the pounding boots of Nazi
soldiers, danger creeps to the doorstep where Natalie shields them all.

Ilona and her husband take the last
two tickets to safety for themselves, abandoning Natalie to protect Anna and
Mila from the encroaching danger. Anna's paranoid
explosion at a university where was once a professor, sparked by delusions over
an imagined love triangle, threatens their only other chance for escape.
Ultimately, Natalie is presented with a choice no one should ever have to make;
which of her family will she save?

An inspirational story of faith and
family, strength and weakness, and the ultimate triumph of love over
hate. Mrs. Tuesday's Departure demonstrates the power of faith
to light even the most harrowing darkness.

... faith is the evidence of things not seen.

  1. There are so many Holocaust/WWII books that I become wary of them... But this sounds like it has the potential to be a good story.

    1. I know what you mean! What caught my eye about this is that it is set in Hungary...so, they are supposed to be allies of the Germans. So, it makes me wonder how this plays out.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    1. Thanks, Sandra! I have a book blog, an 'other' blog, and a planning blog (I am an urban planner). :)

      I do my writing on my book blog cause that is where I thought that it fit the best.
