Snow on the Tulips

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A stranger’s life hangs in the balance. But to save him is to risk everything. The war is drawing to a close, but the Nazis still occupy part of the Netherlands. After the losses she’s endured, war widow Cornelia is only a shadow of the woman she once was. She fights now to protect her younger brother, Johan, who lives in hiding.

When Johan brings Gerrit Laninga, a wounded Dutch Resistance member, to Cornelia’s doorstep, their  ives are forever altered. Although scared of the consequences of harboring a wanted man, Cornelia’s faith won’t let her turn him out. 

As she nurses Gerrit back to health, she is drawn to his fierce passion and ideals, and notices a shift within herself. Gerrit’s intensity challenges her, making her want to live fully, despite the fear that constrains her. When the opportunity to join him in the Resistance presents itself, Cornelia must summon every ounce of courage imaginable.

She is as terrified of loving Gerrit as she is of losing him. But as the winter landscape thaws, so too does her heart. Will she get a second chance at true love? She fears their story will end before it even begins.

From Publishers Weekly

May 27, 2013 – World War II is nearly always a draw for readers, and Tolsma s tale, based on events in her family s past, adds an appealing note of authenticity. Set in Holland in early 1945, Cornelia de Vries is tired of war, of loss, of terror. But when her brother Johan Kooistra brings home a wounded Dutch Resistance fighter, Cornelia must work through her fear. She wants to guard her heart, but Gerrit Laninga, whose bravery inspires her, begins to awaken feelings she thought were as dead as her husband, who was killed on the night of their ill-timed wedding, when the Ger-mans invaded the Netherlands. But can Cornelia conquer her misgivings to do her part for the Resistance? Tolsma does a good job recreating the Netherlands during WWII and placing her readers in the midst of the turmoil, danger, and bravery that filled those last days before the end of the war.
