About "Daisies Are Forever":

Gisela must hold on to hope and love despite all odds in the midst of a war-torn country.
Gisela Cramer is an American living in eastern Germany with her cousin Ella Reinhardt. When the Red Army invades, they must leave their home to escape to safety in Berlin.
However, Ella is a nurse and refuses to leave, sending her young daughters with Gisela. During their journey, Gisela meets Mitch Edwards, an escaped British POW. She pretends she is his wife in order to preserve his safety among other Germans, especially one wounded German soldier, Kurt, who has suspicions about Mitch’s identity. Kurt also has feelings for Gisela and tries to uncover the truth about her “marriage.”

Their journey to Gisela’s mother in Berlin is riddled with tragedy and hardship, but they strive to keep Ella’s daughters safe so they can reunite with their mother. During the journey Gisela and Mitch begin to develop feelings for one another beyond friendship. They reach Berlin, but their struggles are far from over. Gisela and Mitch must learn to live for the day and find hope in the darkest of circumstances.

My thoughts:

This book kept me on the edge of my seat as I watched the love grow between Gisela and Mitch as they struggled to survive the horrific war while also helping others. I have learned so much about the atrocities of war from this historically accurate portrayal of WWII Germany. While the story is fiction it was interesting to find out that the story was based on two different people accounts of what happened to them during the war. I really want to read Liz's other book "Snow on the Tulips" after reading this riviting book.
