Favorite author Liz Tolsma writes a melodious story in "Melody of the Soul" Music of Hope Book #1 [Giveaway]

About the book: It's 1943 and Anna Zadok, a Jewish Christian living in Prague, has lost nearly everything. Most of her family has been deported, and the Nazi occupation ended her career as a concert violinist. Now Anna is left to care for her grandmother, and she'll do anything to keep her safe---a job that gets much harder when Nazi officer Horst Engel is quartered in the flat below them.

Though musical instruments have been declared illegal, Anna defiantly continues to play the violin. But Horst, dissatisfied with German ideology, enjoys her soothing music. When Anna and her grandmother face deportation, Horst risks everything to protect them.

Anna finds herself falling in love with the handsome officer and his brave heart. But what he reveals might stop the music forever.

Meet the Author: Liz Tolsma's specialty is historical fiction---from WWII to prairie romance. Her debut novel was a finalist for the 2014 Selah and Carol Award. She prides herself in excellent storytelling, presenting accurate historical details, and creating persevering characters.

Liz is also a popular speaker on topics such as writing, marriage, living with courage, and adoption. She and her husband have adopted all their children internationally. Liz resides in semi-rural Wisconsin with her husband and two daughters; her son currently serves as a U.S. Marine. Liz is a breast cancer survivor and lives her life to the fullest. In her free time, she enjoys reading, working in her large perennial garden, kayaking, and camping with her family.

  1. I enjoy county music as thats what my parents listened to

  2. I am a child of the 60’s so I enjoy classic rock. But I have a variety of music on my iPad including Bach, Mozart, etc.

  3. I enjoy Christian contemporary music. I find it lifts my spirits and even helps me be more productive. I also like to listen to instrumental music at night to help me go to sleep.

  4. Music plays a huge role in our family. I enjoy most genres of music except hard rock and opera. I do love Christian contemporary music. My son prefers electronic music and classical music, my older daughter prefers jazz and contemporary, my middle daughter prefers classical, and my youngest daughter prefers hip hop. Definitely a diverse family here!
