TITLE:Hidden Among the Stars

by Melanie Dobson

Expected publication: September 2018

RATING: ★★★★★

4 out of 5 stars


From the award-winning author of Catching the Wind, which Publishers Weekly called “unforgettable” and a “must-read,” comes another gripping time-slip novel about hidden treasure, a castle, and ordinary people who resisted evil in their own extraordinary way.
The year is 1938, and as Hitler’s troops sweep into Vienna, Austrian Max Dornbach promises to help his Jewish friends hide their most valuable possessions from the Nazis, smuggling them to his family’s summer estate near the picturesque village of Hallstatt. He enlists the help of Annika Knopf, his childhood friend and the caretaker’s daughter, who is eager to help the man she’s loved her entire life. But when Max also brings Luzia Weiss, a young Jewish woman, to hide at the castle, it complicates Annika’s feelings and puts their entire plan―even their very lives―in jeopardy. Especially when the Nazis come to scour the estate and find both Luzia and the treasure gone.

Eighty years later, Callie Randall is mostly content with her quiet life, running a bookstore with her sister and reaching out into the world through her blog. Then she finds a cryptic list in an old edition of Bambi that connects her to Annika’s story . . . and maybe to the long-buried story of a dear friend. As she digs into the past, Callie must risk venturing outside the safe world she’s built for a chance at answers, adventure, and maybe even new love.

MY REVIEW OF Hidden Among the Stars:

Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for sending me a finished copy of Hidden Among the Stars in exchange for an honest review.

Christian Historical Fiction – World War II
Hidden Among the Stars

This book was so interesting. Set simultaneously in the present day as well as during World War II. This kind of book is called a time-slip mystery and it was so fun making predictions and seeing how the two stories tied into each other.

This book took me a little bit of time to get into as I mainly read fantasy novels, but after I got into the meat of the story, I really enjoyed it. There are so many connections that the author makes and it has a really nice ending.

This book spans several genres in my opinion, being Christian Fiction, as well as Historical Fiction. Another genre that is prevalent in this book is romance between several characters.

This book and the characters within it was well written. My favorite part about this book was the anticipation of how the different characters would be tied together in the end.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about Historical events with a fun twist on characters being tied together, losing each other and then being united in the end.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
