This is book 1 in a series that I thoughly enjoyed. As a result of reading this series, I've become much more interested in the working of WWII and the details of the war. Highly recommend this entire Historical Fiction series.
Predating the events of The Zion Chronicles Series, Vienna Prelude opens in a pre-World War II Austria. Elisa Lindheim, a violinist with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, is of Jewish heritage but has adopted an Aryan stage name. Thus she is able to travel and play in Germany even though a 1935 law forbade Jewish musicians to do so. Her dear friend Leah, a cellist already introduced to Theone readers in A Daughter of Zion, and her husband Shimon must escape Austria or perish in the coming Holocaust. John Murphy, a reporter for the New York Times in Berlin and Austria, becomes linked with English politicians in a plan to overthrow Hitler. Elisa and John's mutual connections with the Jewish Underground entangle them in a web of intrigue, danger, and consiricy that neither could have known.
A story about Nazi Germany before World War Two. It is full of historical fact and great storytelling combined. I love these books. In fact, the only reason I am getting rid of this one is because I have two of them!
Historical fiction at its best, set in pre-World War II Austria. Intrigue, danger, and conspiracy in this novel.
Interesting, Christian historical fiction.
Thrilling! I couldn't put the book down...
book #1 in the Zion Covenant series
Takes place in pre-World War II Austria.
Nazi Darkness was descending upon Europe--Would their lives everbethe same? The characters must escape Austria or perish in the coming Holocaust........
Suspense, drama, romance, history of pre-WW2 Germany and Austria.
Although these books are fiction, I know that the authors research their subjects carefully. These books are suspenseful, heartwarming, heartbreaking... a whole gamut of emotions. I became much more interested in history as a result of reading these books. These books were some of the first Christian fiction I ever read. I could not put them down. I have read all of these and all of the "Zion Chronicles" as well as some of the other books they have written. I highly recommend these books or any of their other books! (make sure you read this series in the order written though!)
I read this book years ago, but I still remember how much I enjoyed it! I immediately went out and got the next book in the series and voraciously read one after another until I finished the whole series! I rank it as one of my favorite series! Highly recommend!
I have all 6 books for shipping
