The Medallion by Cathy Gohlke is a stand-alone story of World War Two. Warsaw, Poland was a very dangerous place to be in 1939. The Nazis had invaded and were bent on the annihilation of all Jews. This is a story of just some of the heroes. When it looks like the very end has come Rosa sends her small daughter out of the ghetto with only a half of a medallion as her hope of ever finding her again after the war. The courage and sacrifice of the people during the war is always so powerful. As I read this story it was at times, hard to see the print because of the tears in my eyes. The author did such a great job of bringing the characters to life. Their struggles, their fears and finally their courage to not give up knowing that God is always in control and will not leave you even in your darkest moments.
I received this book from Celebrate-Lit in exchange for my honest review.
