Because I love World War II novels and sibling relationships and Emily Ann Putzke’s writing and revolutionist stories, naturally I am dying with anticipation for Resist.
And today is its cover reveal birthday!
But first a synopsis:
Munich, Germany 1942—Hans Scholl never intended to get his younger sister involved in an underground resistance. When Sophie Scholl finds out, she insists on joining Hans and his close friends in writing and distributing anti-Nazi leaflets entitled, The White Rose. The young university students call out to the German people, begging them to not allow their consciences to become dormant, but to resist their tyrannical leader and corrupt government. Hans knows the consequences for their actions—execution for committing high treason—but firm in his convictions, he’s prepared to lose his life for a righteous cause. Based on a true story, Hans, Sophie and all the members of The White Rose resistance group will forever inspire and challenge us to do what is right in the midst of overwhelming evil.
Available in paperback and ebook on February 22nd, 2016.
And now for the book cover! Drumroll, please.
Mark your calendars, bookworms! I have been in love with this story ever since Emily started sharing sneak peeks on-line. Because I adore WWII novels, and brother/sister relationships are my favorite; I’m 99% sure people will die, and it will be heartbreaking and inspiring and I have a feeling (you know how sometimes you just know) that it will be one of those books that leaves an indelible impression on my soul.
And we all know those are the best kind.
