Excerpt

Excerpt from: Shadow of His Hand (#06 in Daughters Of The Faith Series)

In the years since Hitler came to power each day brought fresh troubles to the Jews as well as to anyone who hesitated to follow the Nazi dictates. Anita remembered the day news of President von Hindenburg's death came over the wireless, Mutti used to talk about the aged president as the only shield between Hitler and the Jews. When the president died in 1934, all possible opposition to Hitler died with him. Anita went into her corner with Teddy and prayed a phrase she had heard at Mass. "Cover us with the shadow of your hand, Father." She loved the thought of curling into her corner, covered with the hand of God. Each new crisis seemed to be followed by a period of relative calm. Anita often wondered how life could go on despite all the upheaval, but it did. Some days they almost forgot the doom that hung over the land. When Anita head she passed the exams and had full scholarship to Bethany Lutheran School, she had to keep herself from dancing down the street.

The Shadow of His Hand
By Wendy Lawton
This book is my favourite in this series! I love them all but this one was really awesome! All her life she wanted her father's acceptance but he favoured her older sister more. When things got worse for Jews in Germany, Anita's German father leaves her mother, sister and her. Her mother then meets a pastor and his wife. The pastor helped many Jews get passports to leave Germany and take refuge in another country like Brittan. Wait stop... sorry I can't tell you the whole story you'll have to purchase the book for yourself and read what happens. It's such a good book I can't tell you anymore. Now I kind of want to reread the book... hehe
Hope you enjoyed reading, Shekanah

A great book
4 stars By Emily , Mar 24 2016
"Shadow of His Hand" is part of the Daughters of the Faith series.  It is based on the life of Anita Dittman, a half Jewish girl who lived during the time of World War 2. As Hitler rids Germany of Jews, Anita has to trust God that He will take care of her. This is a story of sorrow, pain and loss' but through it all God has a plan. It is good for girl's aged 10-14. I loved every second of this book.
