Litfuse Blog Tour: Snow on the Tulips

Confession time:  I really, really struggled getting into this book.  For me, the first three chapters read as over-writing and ( full confession) I just wasn't in the mood to go further because I have had a lot on my plate. I mean a LOT!

Now, that being said, I love the unique setting and original canvas --one that I think we can all agree is not often found in the CBA market. Further, from the get-go, I could tell Tolsma  had done more than her fair share of research. Her passion for this sparked from the first page.

It's difficult as a reader when you have eighteen things on the go to settle in and make yourself plod further with a book that doesn't immediately catch you---we have all had those moments I am sure.
So, fair readers, the most I can do for you at this interval is direct you to all the information you could possibly want about the book and leave it up to you to pick it up and soldier on.

From the Publisher:

A stranger’s life hangs in the balance. But to save him is to risk everything.
The war is drawing to a close, but the Nazis still occupy part of the Netherlands. After the losses she’s endured, war widow Cornelia is only a shadow of the woman she once was. She fights now to protect her younger brother, Johan, who lives in hiding.
When Johan brings Gerrit Laninga, a wounded Dutch Resistance member, to Cornelia’s doorstep, their  lives are forever altered. Although scared of the consequences of harboring a wanted man, Cornelia’s faith won’t let her turn him out.
As she nurses Gerrit back to health, she is drawn to his fierce passion and ideals, and notices a shift within herself. Gerrit’s intensity challenges her, making her want to live fully, despite the fear that constrains her. When the opportunity to join him in the Resistance presents itself, Cornelia must summon every ounce of courage imaginable.
She is as terrified of loving Gerrit as she is of losing him. But as the winter landscape thaws, so too does her heart. Will she get a second chance at true love? She fears their story will end before it even begins.
