Remember the Lilies by Liza Tolsma

Remember the Lilies

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 opinion:  I always love a good WW2 story and one that takes place in the Pacific is a rare treat. This book was very enjoyable and dealt with a little known aspect of WW2 and for those reasons alone I liked the book. Overall it had very engaging characters even though they did bug me at times. I do get tired of authors that focus on physical beauty and how gorgeous a character is, but that is besides the point. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good historical fiction. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
