Customer Reviews for Journeyforth A Father's Promise

Journeyforth A Father's Promise

Adolf Hitler's ominous statements seem only a distant threat to 11-year-old Rudi Kaplan. But when the Nazi forces invade Poland and bomb his home city of Warsaw, Rudi finds out that he is Hitler's enemy not only because he is a Pole but also because he's a Jew--and a Christian.

The next few years change Rudi's life forever. With only his imprisoned father's promise that they will be reunited after the war, Rudi must learn how to survive in hiding, how to be truly brave, and how to overcome the hatred of his enemies. He must learn to die to himself and to trust the God who is mightier than any army. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.

I bought this book so that my 6 th graders could read it together in class. It was fabulous! As a teacher, I am always looking for good books to pique my students interest. This book did! My students LOVED it! They couldn't wait to get to English class and start reading again! That's a success in my book.

My 10 year old son LOVED this book. He's a bit of a reluctant reader, but he couldn't put this down. HIGHLY recommended!

Awesome historical fiction book...I would recommend it even for teens/adults. I'm almost 16 and I still LOVE this book! Definitely a must-read for anyone interested in reading an account of what it might have been like to be living in the midst of WWII...

This is a wonderful book. I love it. Some of the major themes are love and loyalty.Rudy is devoted to his father. A Father's Promise is also very historical, you can learn a lot about WWII.
