Cover Attraction: While We're Far Apart by Lynn Austin

Author: Lynn Austin

Publisher: Bethany House

About the book:

In an unassuming apartment building in Brooklyn, New York, three lives intersect as the reality of war invades each aspect of their lives. Young Esther is heartbroken when her father decides to enlist in the army shortly after the death of her mother. Penny Goodrich has been in love with Eddie Shaffer for as long as she can remember; now that Eddie's wife is dead, Penny feels she has been given a second chance and offers to care for his children in the hope that he will finally notice her and marry her after the war. And elderly Mr. Mendel, the landlord, waits for the war to end to hear what has happened to his son trapped in war-torn Hungary.

But during the long, endless wait for victory overseas, life on the home front will go from bad to worse. Yet these characters will find themselves growing and changing in ways they never expected--and ultimately discovering truths about God's love... even when He is silent.


  1. This one looks good but, I've never read any books by Lynn Austin, so I don't really know what to expect.
    Love Ya,

  2. I don't think I have read anything by Lynn Austin. Very nice review and this sounds like a good historic novel.

    Thanks for both of your comments! Since neither of you have read Lynn Austin yet, may I recommend you start with Eve's Daughters, Hidden Places, or All She Ever Wanted? All three books are written in her signature style which incorporates history within a contemporary setting...sounds complex, but it's just wonderful!

    The book featured in this post is her next book, but it's not due out until October. Bummer that it's so far away... :o(

  4. I loved this book. I would also highly recommend her book "Until We Reach Home."


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
