Summer Snippets: Lizzie Guernsey Gang
We have a great treat for you today. Look at our newest feature of our Summer Snippets...
For a long moment, all I could hear was the wind whipping in off the turquoise water. The boys and I hadn’t talked much about being left behind. Each lost in thought, we stared out to sea as if trying to catch one last glimpse of the large vessels.
Most of the island’s children had been evacuated and schools were closed. Fear of Nazi invasion filled every hushed conversation.

Lizzie Browning loves nothing more than her tiny, island-home of Guernsey, but when German bombs drop on her crystal beach, her peaceful world explodes. For months, the big war in Europe has been nothing more than stories in the paper, but as the enemy takes over Guernsey, the war rushes to her doorstep. For Lizzie, younger brother Andre, and cousin James, the time to escape is now, and they know just how to do it.
Phillip Seifert, the odd boy from down the street, has all the markings of a genuine Nazi-lover. Lizzie knows better than to trust him, but he somehow manages to weasel his way into James’ good graces. Phillip joins the gang in their audacious escape plan, and Lizzie can do little more than pray he doesn’t get them all shot. But Lizzie soon learns that God doesn’t always answer prayers in the way she expects. He might actually plan for them to live under Nazi rule…forever.
