The Slow March of Light by Heather B. Moore // Review

My Review: 

Based on an inspiring story of courage on the border between East and West Germany. 

Bob Inama is a US soldier stationed in West Germany, his fluency with the German language makes him the perfect candidate for a secret mission posing as an American student. 

Luisa Voigt is a young nurse who becomes pulled into the plight of East Germans, what starts with a simple message turns into somethings that touches the lives of many. 

An engaging and evocative novel blending fact and fiction to tell the story of a remarkable man and the brave men and women who sacrificed so much to love their eastern neighbors. It was so cool that the author worked hard to keep Bob's story as accurate as possible, and I was inspired by his steadfast faith throughout the entire experience. Luisa is also a courageous woman who takes risks to help give others a chance at a better life. 

A poignant read that brings to life the hardships and stark differences between the East and West. Rivetingly realistic, this is a well written novel from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

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