Children of the Stars by Mario Escobar ~ Review

My Review:

An incredible story of two brothers and the brave people who risked everything to help the boys escape.

Set in France during the WWII, this story follows brothers Jacob and Moses as they fight for their survival and a chance to reunite with their playwright parents. I loved how this book tells of the many men and women who sacrificed everything to stand up to oppression and help the children on their way. 

This book is rich in history, well researched it brings the dangers, betrayals, and sacrifices to life. This is an inspiring tale, compelling, yet at times it lagged in pace, feeling more "tell" than "show," and it felt very episodic. 

Overall, it's a book that I am glad to have read. There is much to admire and appreciate about this story of brotherly love, survival, and the kindness of strangers. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
