This is the first book in the Thoene’s new series, Zion Diaries. I was pretty happy to see that she had a new series out from the WWII era, so I jumped on this first book.
The story is very intriguing. It kept me rolling from chapter to chapter pretty quickly. It was one of those books that kept me up way too late at night, but I didn’t mind at all! I very much enjoyed all of the characters and learning about some little known things and people from the second world war. The tin nose shop men were really interesting to read about.
There is one aspect of the book that requires you to suspend disbelief quite a bit. If you can do that, you will love this book and all of the questions that it brings up about what happened in Jerusalem the day Christ died on the cross. It sure has me thinking. Way to go, Thoenes!
