Center Point Large Print Books #2: Against the Wind, Large Print

As Nazi forces tighten their net of evil over Europe in 1940, famed Jewish concert violist Elisa Lindheim Murphy escapes from Vienna to England. But both Elisa and her American newsman husband, John Murphy, are convinced that nowhere in Europe is safe from Hitler's seemingly unstoppable forces.

As Nazi U-boats patrol and sink Allied vessels in the North Atlantic, Elisa makes a desperate but brave decision-to accompany Jewish refugee children on a civilian transport through treacherous seas to seek asylum in America. At least there, in the land of freedom, the ragged remnant of the Jewish people can live on in peace and safety-or so she hopes. But as German torpedoes streak toward the refugee ship, Elisa will face the greatest trial of her life..

This is the 2nd book in a series by Bodie and Brock Thoene. Readers of the Zion Covenant will recognize the characters of Elisa Lindheim Murphy, her husband John Murphy and many others.
I consider this book a must-read if you are a fan of World War II fiction. The Thoenes are wonderful in the way they weave their writing magic and this book is no exception.
I can honestly say that this book met all of my expectations, though I liked the first book better. The second book is just as well written, but the content of the 1st book was more interesting to me personally.
