The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey

What a great, great story. I love WWII, and I'm a big fan of espionage, so between the two, I was hooked. And, to be honest, I really enjoy reading about the resistance movements that were trying to fight against Hitler, especially in terms of Christians working against him. We so often hear the stories of what went wrong, what could have been done, what should have been done, etc, that I always appreciate the perspective of the courageous few who stood to make a difference. I'm so glad this story of courage and honor was told. Okay, so it's fiction, but I'd like to believe that somewhere in this story rings the truth of some unsung heroes.
