The Pencildancers Reviewers Presents: When The Heart Sings by Liz Tolsma














The Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their Polish farm to a labor camp. When the couple is separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules—and the consequences for disobeying them—Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.

The stakes get higher when Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear— but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.

My Review




A book that made me feel like I was there in real life, or watching a movie, and knowing all the way that it is based on actual history, yes, it really happened.
What a wonderful job the author did telling this story, that should never be forgotten, and as she said at the end of the book Poland is not telling students of the history of what happened to them.
With all the atrocities that happen the characters have a great faith in God and country, and a lot is displayed through song.
This is a riveting page-turner, and right from the beginning you won’t know whom will survive to the end.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Gilead, and was not required to give a positive review.
