All God's Children  

Series: The Peacemakers  
Author: Anna Schmidt 

Beth Bridgewater, a German American, finds herself in a nightmare as World War II erupts—a war in which she takes no side, for she is a Quaker pacifist. Just as she gains opportunity to escape Germany, Beth decides to stay to help the helpless. Meanwhile, Josef Buch, a passionately patriot German, is becoming involved in his own secret ways of resisting the Nazis. . . . Despite their differences, Beth and Josef join together in nonviolent resistance—and in love. Does their love stand a chance. . .if they even survive at all?

The Peacemakers Series:
Book 2: Simple Faith - Available March 2014

Review:   
The activities of the White Rose resistance group, as well as the prisoner uprising at the Sobibor concentration camp, are more than simple historical context. Schmidt seamlessly integrates these actual events, and the courageous real-life individuals who fought against Hitler’s regime, with her fictional characters and their story to produce a strong tale of hope and love in the face of insurmountable obstacles.

The first in the Peacemakers trilogy is an exceptionally well-written story that shows the atrocities of war. Set in Munich during WWII, it chronicles characters on a life changing journey. The writing is vivid and depicts the time and places accurately. While the story of Beth and Josef seems to come to and end, we get the feeling more is yet to come for them and others in this heart-wrenching story of love, forgiveness, and perseverance. Readers will await the second and third books in the series.

The author did a phenomenal job of describing Germany in the early 1940s and what it was like there after the war. Ms. Schmidt leaves you feeling as if you are joining the characters in the story, and you will be truly entertained and blessed as you read All God’s Children.
