February, 1946. World War Two is over, but the recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Résistance spy. Now the two women are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to cross the Atlantic and be reunited with their American husbands.

I love Susan’s books, but this one just sat uncomfortable with me talking about spirits. I’m a spiritual person, believe in spirits good and bad..just don’t want to “mess” with them.

In an ancient land in a time foretold by prophets, a babe was born beneath a shining star. Thirty years later, Jesus of Nazareth began teaching a message of hope, peace, and love. He claimed to be the Son of God, and his words - and his life - would change the world. Though David ben Joseph is quick to accept Jesus as the Messiah, the rest of his family is more cautious.

Normally I like books written for young adults because they usually aren't as sexually graphic. I was very disappointed this book is teaching YA to have sex with someone they are sexually attracted to w/o having any real face to face conversations...quote "Don't talk".
