About the book:

Remember the Lilies (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

Can Irene and Rand stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom?

Interred by the Japanese, missionary Irene Reynolds comes across a mysterious note while working at the censor's office. She memorizes the parts she must black out and delivers it to wealthy nightclub owner Rand Sterling. Before she knows what's happening, she's drawn into a web of secrets and danger.

Rand Sterling wants nothing more than to reopen his nightclubs once the war ends. But slimy Frank Covey wants his hand in the till---and has news that could threaten Rand's reputation if it became public. More importantly, beautiful and intriguing Irene Reynolds cannot discover this information if he expects to persuade her to become his wife.
When Irene is attacked by a sinister Japanese guard and their secrets are exposed, they must learn the true meaning of forgiveness---if they can stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom.

My Review:
I had been looking forward to reading Liz's latest novel, "Remember the Lilies" for months and was so excited when I received it and began to read right away!  I absolutely loved Rand and Irene's story!  Liz has such a talent for writing historical fiction as she brings the historical details to life in her stories and also brings the characters to live.  Rand and Irene were both so real to me and I loved them both right away.  The book begins with a brief prologue that introduces both characters to the reader and to each other, but then chapter 1 jumps ahead about 2 years and the characters are connected once more.  World War II has always been a time period that I have enjoyed learning about and Liz does an amazing job with sharing lesser known details about this time.  This book is set in the Philippines and I did not previously know much at all about how this area was affected by the war, but know I feel like I have a full awareness and understanding.  The romance is also very sweet in this story as well and I love the growth and development of the main characters throughout the story and within their relationship with each other as well.  I also have to note how much I love the cover on this novel, it is beautifully done. I highly recommend Liz's novels for historical fiction fans as they are ones you do not want to miss!
