About "While We're Far Apart"
In an unassuming apartment building in Brooklyn, New York, three lives intersect as the reality of war invades each aspect of their lives. Young Esther is heartbroken when her father decides to enlist in the army shortly after the death of her mother. Penny Goodrich has been in love with Eddie Shaffer for as long as she can remember; now that Eddie's wife is dead, Penny feels she has been given a second chance and offers to care for his children in the hope that he will finally notice her and marry her after the war. And elderly Mr. Mendel, the landlord, waits for the war to end to hear what has happened to his son trapped in war-torn Hungary. But during the long, endless wait for victory overseas, life on the home front will go from bad to worse. Yet these characters will find themselves growing and changing in ways they never expected--and ultimately discovering truths about God's love...even when He is silent.
Captivating characters, heart-tugging emotion, and vivid spiritual truths meld into a story set amid the uncertainty of the home front during WWI.

This book was both "easy reading" and "deep and meaningful". I heartily recommend it.
I really love Lynn Austin and value the research that she's done to make her novels true to their era. For example, she makes reference to some historical figures such as a Swedish Diplomat whose heroic efforts saved thousands of Jews. I also appreciated the education in Judaism which I received along the way. In this particular novel I questioned how realistic her ending was but truly enjoyed it just the same. A good read - I recommend it.
