    1. I m a historical contemporary fiction author, stay at home mom, homeschooler, freelance editor, and the owner of Trifecta Books.

    2. I've drawn the connection. The reason I give such high ratings to books that make me cry is because, to do that, they have to draw me in so that I make an emotional connection to the characters. If I genuinely care about them, almost like real people, then their heartaches and triumphs are things I feel as I read.That said, I picked up Strength to Endure last night around 11 PM. I finished it at 1:30 AM. And for the first time in my life, I cried all the way through the book. Tears just fell as [...]

    3. I love the building of the characters. However the building of the characters is brief so you don't get attached to them. That is important here because the story discards characters frequently since the entire story covers several decades and generations. It has a family history twist to it that I found interesting.

    4. WonderfulI know this book is fiction but it really touched me. Do many good people lived in Germany and the surrounding area when that madman reeked hated, torture and death to so many people. I think the people that were part of the resistance are indeed special angels. Thank you to the author and good people all over the world.

    5. Great storyI loved the story from page one. It makes you think about the history and what we can learn from it. Hitler was so evil that it is hard to comprehend.

    6. I read all three of Tristi Pinkston's historical fiction books this week. What else is a leader supposed to do at Scout Camp while the boys are in merit badge classes for 6 hours per day?This book was fantastic. I have placed it in my "All Time Favorites" book shelf.Although I liked all three of Tristi's books a great deal, this one, in my opinion is the best, and also my favorite of the three.The book did not feel like fiction. I have read Viktor Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning", and "The Lo [...]

    7. This book really touched me. I enjoyed the character of Anneliese, and I felt just how confused she was with the way her world was changing. First her brothers were acting differently than they ever had. Then they disappeared. Next her father disappeared, never to be heard from again. Finally, Annaliese and her husband were taken and she had a pretty good idea what had become of him. But she had to stay strong, because she herself was expecting a baby. That scene made me cry, I loved Annaliese b [...]

    8. Strength to EndureThis is the first book by Tristi Pinkston that I've had the pleasure of reading, but it will definitely not be my last! She wove a tale so convincing and real that I expected to learn that it was a biographical story. It is not, but that doesn't take any of the thrill away. I was amazed at how well she told the story of a German family with their heartaches as Hitler took power, the grief and drama of the sons worshipping the insanity that was Hitler, the understated story of t [...]

    9. This book has had me experience more emotions than I do in a typical week! So much hope, devastation, faith and then hope again is inevitably going to leave it's mark on any reader.I'd recommend anyone reading 'Strength to Endure' but if you're going through a tough time this will definitely help you. The way Tristi wrote this book had me convinced that these people were real, my friends and people to aspire to follow!Thank you Tristi, for an amazing read.Debs

    10. This well-researched book has heart-tugging moments and drama that has your heart in your throat as you wonder what could possibly fix the stare-death-in-the-face situations. Some sadness, as war brings, and some triumphs of the human spirit are woven into the story.My in-laws lived through WWII in occupied Holland, and when they read it, they were amazed at author Tristi Pinkston's youth. My mother in law said, "Miracles did happen."

    11. This was a really enjoyable look at WWII from the perspective of a German family. I loved the characters from the start and the story line caught my attention and held it from the beginning. I have to say I was pretty shocked in the middle of the book, but it turned out to be a beautiful story of love.

    12. This is a novel that follows the development of WWII from the perspective of characters inside Nazi Germany. I absolutely loved this book and highly reccomend it. It's written by an LDS author but has very minor LDS elements to it. It can be hard to find as it wasn't widely distrubuted but I found it to be one of the best written LDS books I've ever read.

    13. I am always drawn to WW2 books and enjoyed this very much. The writing was certainly not Pat Conroy, but passable. I thought there were a few too many coincidences which seems fairly typical in the genre I call "cheeseball LDS fiction". However---that doesn't mean I didn't like it. I did. And, I recommend it.

    14. Another historical fiction about WWII, this one told from the point of view of a young girl who grew up in Germany and then from the p.o.v. of her daughter. Heartrending in places, but also many parts are beautiful and peaceful and happy. Considering the topic, this is one of the few books that actually does leave you uplifted.

    15. This author left a comment on my blog and I was curious, so I checked out her book. I expected it to be typical Mormon drivel fiction writing but it is really good. Fun to be unexpectedly surprised by this.

    16. Wow What a great book. I really like reading storiesabout the Holocaust, Hitler. What the poor Jews went throughThis story is about a family, not Jewish, hiding a Jew thengetting caught. I really recommend the book. I'm not muchof a reviewer but I try.

    17. Met Tristi! Wonderful and funny. My daughter loves historical fiction. So, I'm excited to branch out and read Tristi's books. Who knows, maybe some day she'll be writing novels like Tristi.

    18. A historical fiction set in Germany during WW2. I really enjoyed this book, the characters were believable, the story of courage was refreshing.

    19. I enjoyed this story set during WWII from the German citizens point of view. Another good read from Tristi.

    20. I really enjoyed this book of a girl when Hitler came into power in Germany. It would be an excellent book for middle school - high schoolers to read.

    21. Very interesting. Most events occured during WW II in Germany but story continued to 1960s with a daughter of the main character. I'll read more by this author.

    22. This was a very good book. It tells the story of a German family during Hitler's rise to power. I really liked this book.

    23. Loved it!! I was expecting something completly different and predictable. I was plesantly surprised. Shocked at some parts! Would totally recommend!
