Product Description

Product Description

After losing her beloved husband and daughter and surviving Hitler’s Sobibor death camp, Quaker widow Anja Steinberg dedicates her life to helping others and keeping her son safe. As a member of the resistance, she helps displaced Allied airmen get back to their units in England. The journey is rigorous and filled with danger and there is no time for romance. Anja knows that Mikel, her fellow resistance worker, loves her. He would make a good husband and father for her son, but she doesn’t share his feelings. Is friendship enough? Then American Peter Trent parachutes into her life. She must face facts—her heart did not die with her late husband and true love could be hers again. But marrying Mikel may be the only way she can save Peter.

I cannot imagine the amount of research that went into writing this book. Once you start reading, it's hard to put down.
Anna Schmidt has moved up on my list of must-read authors. Her writing style is superb and the attention to detail in the story lines is remarkable. I'm now starting Book 3 in the series and I'm sure it will be equally enjoyed!

HASH(0xa5e33294) out of 5 stars WWII Drama, Underground Railroad, Romance & Faith March 1 2014
By Pat G. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anja Steinberg is a Quaker and was married to a Jew. The Nazi's executed her husband and daughter. Anja took her son and escaped to her grandparents. This story was in book one but enough was given in background information that you can read this as a stand alone. When Peter Trent's plane is shot down the crew has to bail out over occupied territory. Anja's 8 year old son finds and helps to hide him from the German troops looking for those that bailed out. He then gets his mother and grandfather to help. Peter is relieved to find they are part of a underground railroad like the US had during the civil war. Peter was injured while on the plan and infection sets in. He has to be in top shape to make the trip across the mountains. For those of you that don't know, Germany's mountains are next to the Swiss Alps and they are beautiful. I wouldn't want to live there and have to travel across them in the winter time especially. When Peter and Anja start their journey they are separated and Peter is captured. The hardships were hard, limited food and water, no blankets and most of the trip was by foot. There is something happening in every chapter to get your attention. I read this in two sittings and I didn't want to put it down. This is well written and I was caught in the storyline. I only wish it had been longer. I'm looking forward to the next book SAFE HAVENs coming out soon I hope.

I've read several of Anna Schmidt's book and this is my favorite. Yes, I read the first book in the series. She has some wonderful books written in Amish Fiction. Anna's faith shows through in her characters and how they rely on God to strengthen them and help them through the hard times.

I received this book through [...] to read, review and leave an honest opinion. I will be keeping these books to reread in the future. Yes, I do reread exceptionally good books several times. Truly a fast-paced adventure.

REVIEW

SETTING: 1943 Europe WWII

This book can be read as a stand alone but it would be nice if you could read book one before. The story is a fast paced adventure that takes place during WWII.. Anja Steinberg is a Quaker, married to a Jew. In book one, the Nazi's killed her husband and her daughter. Anja ran away to her grandparents with her son.

Peter Trent and his crew's plane is shot down in occupied territory. Anja's son, who is only eight finds a hiding place so the German's can't find him. He asks his mother and grandma to help him. This was a form of the underground railroad that the United States had during the civil war period. Peter had been injured and infection had set in. He must be in good condition to make it over the mountains. Anja helped the airmen travel over the mountains to France and then Spain and hopefully back to their troops.

When Anja and Peter finally start their journey, Peter is captured. The journey over the mountains was extremely demanding and hard. Little food and water, travelling mostly by food and very little to keep them warm.

The author provides such wonderful descriptions that you can almost visualize their journey.

I received a complimentary copy of SIMPLE FAITH by Anna Schmidt from Pump Up Your Book Virtual Tours for my honest view. No other compensation took place.

The author has some education put into the book about the Hitler's death camp, Sobibor, the struggles and hardships people endured during this time period. She added how faith held people together and gave them the strength to endure. This is a great historical novel with lots of adventure and a little romance put in.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical novels about WWII. The author did a good job of getting good, hard facts into the story so that you wanted to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.
HASH(0xa5593f9c) out of 5 stars I enjoyed book 1 and #2 is even better! May 15 2014
By J. Augustine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've not read very many World War II novels, kinda seems like historical stories end for me in 1920, but lately I have been coming across some really good ones that take place during the 40's, and this is one of those books. I read the first book in this series, All God's Children, and definitely enjoyed but I think I liked Simple Faith even more.

There was more adventure and intrigue in book 2. I also really liked how the heroine, Anja, is a strong woman. Going beyond her own pain at the loss of her husband and baby, having survived and escaped a concentration camp, she endangers her own life trying to save as many people as she can. Then everything changes, instead of guiding people towards safety she is the one needing help. On the run with an American pilot she is beginning to fall in love with, she winds up trekking across several European countries in a desperate bid to save his life, her own, and more importantly, her young son.

Each of the characters have their own battles, their own fears, and really their own inner demons. How far will each of them go to save the others? Are they willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice? To me, the story was much about choices and personal sacrifice and I found myself wondering how far I would go, would I be strong enough to do what Anja does?

Once again the pacifist faith of the Quakers is put to the test in the horrors of war. The Quaker faith is something I know very little about and I very much liked learning more about their beliefs and practices through entertaining pages of a novel.

This is a great book for fans of WWII fiction. Anna Schmidt has outdone herself with Simple Faith. In many ways this book had the same qualities of those wonderful old WWII classic movies, kind of like Casablanca without the questionable morals and dubious ending.

Excellent, enjoyable story, and I am definitely looking forward to book 3 when it comes out.

(I received a copy of this book from Revell through The Book Club Network for my honest review. All opinions are my own)
HASH(0xa599696c) out of 5 stars Another aspect about WWII I never knew til I read this novel! Loved it and can't wait for more! May 12 2014
By Pirate2240 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have followed my book reviews for any length of time, then you know I am a huge WWII fan of both historical fiction and non fiction books. I am so thrilled I got the opportunity to review Anna Schmidt's novel, Simple Faith, the second novel in the Peacemakers Series. In this one she utilizes the true story of a group of German medical students who banded together in what came to be known as the White Rose to speak out against Hitler and the Nazis.

The journey of the characters of Anja and Josef and Beth take in this novel is set against the background of historical fact. "Amazingly, during World War II there were several so-called escape lines managed by brave local citizens of countries occupied by the Nazis. Like those who worked on the Underground Railroad, these individuals - at considerable risk to their own lives and safety - provided false papers, safe houses, food, shelter, and clothing to move Allied airmen from the site of their downed planes behind enemy lines across much of Europe until they could reach Gibraltar - a British territory - and move from there back to England. They traveled hundreds, even thousands of miles by train, bicycle, or on foot, and perhaps the most amazing piece of this story is that the best known of these escape lines - the Comet Line - was created and manage by a young woman." (excerpt).

This is the story of Second Lieutenant Peter Trent who was shot down while attempting to escape a fire in his bomber that was activated by a photoflash bomb and thus requiring an immediate evacuation of the plane. This was not before being shot in the leg and as he tries to remember all his survival training tips as he parachutes into Belgium in November of 1943, he only hopes he can make it out alive along with the five other crewmen who jumped with him. But for now with being shot in the leg, he can only hope that a "friendly" comes to rescue him before the Nazi Gestapos do.

What Peter does discover is a band of people who are willing to risk their lives and those of their children to make sure that he finds his way back home instead of being shot or captured by the Nazi's. Peter and Anja are about to embark on a life changing journey that will do more than test their survival skills but also test their faith in God along the way.

I received Simple Faith by Anna Schmidt compliments of Shiloh Publishing and Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained in this review are strictly my own unless otherwise noted. For me, this one was aspect of the war, I have never heard about until picking up Anna's novel. I can't imagine how difficult it would be the not only find an Allied airmen, but to risk their own personal safety against being arrested or killed while trying to get him home while the Nazis continually searched for these men. Knowing their plane was shot down, it only seems logical that they would search nearby farms, homes and businesses looking for people who were willing to hide them. Almost like what countries did during the Holocaust to hide the Jews who were being shipped off into concentration camps. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the research that went into the creation of this amazing novel and can easily give this one a 5 out of 5 stars. I look forward to picking up the first novel in this series, to see how Anja escaped the Nazi death camp in All God's Children.
