LitFUSE Blog Tour: Songbird Under a German Moon

by | Uncategorized

The year is 1945. The war is over and 21-year-old Betty Lake has been invited to Europe to sing in a USO tour for American soldiers who now occupy Hitler’s Germany. The first nights performance is a hit. Betty becomes enthralled with the applause, the former Nazi-held mansion they’re housed in and the attention of Frank Witt, the US Army Signal Corp Photographer. Yet the next night this songbird is ready to fly the coop when Betty’s dear friend, Kat, turns up missing. Betty soon realizes Franks photographs could be the key to finding Kat. Betty and Frank team up against post-war Nazi influences and the two lovebirds’ hearts may find the answers…in each other. But will they have a chance for their romance to sing? The truth will be revealed under a German moon.

Lisa’s Thoughts:  

Tricia Goyer takes her readers back in time to an era of war-torn despondency, giving them a fascinating peek inside the historic Festspielhaus opera house, built by German composer Wagner, where USO singers entertained the troops. I enjoyed reading the history woven throughout the novel. The characters’ distinct voices and personalities add flavor to the time period. Songbird Under a German Moon honors those who fought for their country, and those who supported them.
