Remember the Lilies By Liz Tolsma

Monday, March 16, 2015
Rand Sterling was a wealthy American who was very well known in Manila for his clubs. But now during WWII Rand is just like all the other civilian prisoners of war. Trying to survive the Santo Tomas Internment Camp. Even though a dear friend who helped raise him needs help on the outside.

Irene Reynolds grew up with her missionary Aunt in the Philippine jungle. But now that they are in the Internment Camp she works delivering censored messages to other American prisoners.
  But when Irene makes a mistake with a message that leads to Rand failing his escape attempt, he is sent to the torture chambers of Fort Santiago. But surprisingly Rand returns alive, although in bad shape. As life becomes harder, and someone begins threatening Rand, they must work together to find a way to stay alive. And to possibly have a future together if they are ever freed from the Japanese.
This has to be one of the best books I have read in a long time! I enjoyed it even more than the last book by this author! The story was done very well and the plot was great. It was like getting a look into the time period and what it was like for the people there. The characters were wonderfully done, and it was easy for me to relate to Irene. Irene and the other people there went through a lot, but the story was not so bad that it was hard to read. I think Liz Tolsma did a wonderful job on balancing everything in the story. This was a amazing book and I highly recommend it!
I received this book free from the publisher, Thomas Nelson, through the BookLook Bloggers book review program. The opinions are my own.
