A real page turner!
Night Song by author Tricia Goyer is a fictional work with the historical backdrop of the Nazi regime during WWII. The stories of four compelling characters are told as separate threads which are woven skillfully together at the end of the novel. Two star-crossed lovers are separated by war, one, an American doctor, the other, an Austrian socialite. They are torn apart but remain faithful to each other through turmoil and temptation. The other two main characters are a scheming German SS officer and a young Jewish musician. Each seeks to survive despite the circumstances of war, politics, and privation. The conclusion brings these four together in the most unlikely of places, the deadly Mauthausen concentration camp in Germany. The book is well-researched and rich in detail, yet sensitive to the brutality of that time and place. Goyer reminds us that we ought not forget what many endured she reminds us that many sacrificed their lives so that others might live on. The book resonates endurance and hope in even the most hopeless of situations. Night Song makes the powerful declaration that the greatest conquering force of all is love. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the future works of Tricia Goyer.
