The Warsaw Sisters ~ Amanda Barratt

 This book is a Historical, Christian, World War II read.  It takes place during the 1930's and the war in Warsaw during the German invasion.  When the two sisters, Antonina and Helena are having to see their father going to war to protect their country, their lives will change forever.  Antonina finds herself working with a network of women to shelter Jewish children and keep them safe.  Helena makes the decision to become part of the secret army that will fight to keep her country safe. They are forced apart, the family and friends that once surrounded them are gone and now the sisters are on their own journeys.  Will they be able to survive and come close again?  Will they both survive this war?  Will they be reunited?  What will the future be for them?

I would recommend this book to those that like historical reads.  It is a book that tugs at your heart and keeps you up at night reading.  The two sisters are strong women with separate goals, but still love each other. This is an emotional read that shows history and how it effected all people.  I was touched at this book and if you love history and stories about courage, bravery, sisterhood and love for family.. READ THIS!
