Publisher's Summary

For fans of best-selling WWII fiction comes a powerful novel from Lynn Austin about three women whose lives are instantly changed when the Nazis invade the neutral Netherlands, forcing each into a complicated dance of choice and consequence. 

Lena is a wife and mother who farms alongside her husband in the tranquil countryside. Her faith has always been her compass, but can she remain steadfast when the questions grow increasingly complex and the answers could mean the difference between life and death?  

Lena’s daughter, Ans, has recently moved to the bustling city of Leiden, filled with romantic notions of a new job and a young Dutch police officer. But when she is drawn into Resistance work, her idealism collides with the dangerous reality that comes with fighting the enemy.  

Miriam is a young Jewish violinist who immigrated for the safety she thought Holland would offer. She finds love in her new country, but as her family settles in Leiden, the events that follow will test them in ways she could never have imagined.  

The Nazi invasion propels these women onto paths that cross in unexpected, sometimes-heartbreaking ways. Yet the story that unfolds illuminates the surprising endurance of the human spirit and the power of faith and love to carry us through.

Among the Best

Lynn Austin has surely been blessed. Her books are consistently among the best written books in print. Chasing Shadows is no exception. Chasing Shadows takes place in Holland during WWII. I listened to the audio version of the book. Stina Nielsen gave an amazing performance with her narration. I was sorry for this book to end. It's that good.

Amazing narration of a fabulous story!

Kudos to Stina Nielsen who did an amazing job narrating this audiobook edition!! WOW! Her pronunciation of the Dutch words were spot on and that is not an easy task!! This is the first narrator I have encountered that was able to accomplish this. The story was amazing and the spiritual themes woven throughout were so encouraging!! I always love Lynn Austin's books and Nielsen just made this all the more enjoyable!! Highly recommend this book!!

A Blessing to Hear!

Lynn Austin is easily becoming one of my favorite authors! The words within the story and the grim history told are so important to remember. Lynn Austin Does an amazing job capturing this momentous era in history from the perspectives of three women. Normally I like to listen to my audiobooks over a few days or even weeks, to really stretch out the story. But I binged this story in one weekend, because I was so captivated by the characters in the story and the workings of God’s love.

Such a blessing to hear this book. Thank you Lynn Austin!

Too Depressing

I got through 20 chapters of this story. Although Lynn Austin is usually very good, this story was too depressing, and it’s lighter moments were either unrealistic or contained a lot of preaching The preaching seemed to try to minimize the horror that the characters naturally felt, vs inspire hope. I decided to return it rather than endure more of the same.
