Unti the Leaves Fall by Sarah Sundin



When the Nazis march toward Paris, American ballerina Lucie Girard buys her favorite English-language bookstore to allow the Jewish owners to escape. The Germans make it difficult for her to keep Green Leaf Books afloat. And she must keep the store open if she is to continue aiding the resistance by passing secret messages between the pages of her books.

Widower Paul Aubrey wants nothing more than to return to the States with his little girl, but the US Army convinces him to keep his factory running and obtain military information from his German customers. As the war rages on, Paul offers his own resistance by sabotaging his product and hiding British airmen in his factory. But in order to carry out his mission, he must appear to support the occupation—which does not win him any sympathy when he meets Lucie in the bookstore.

In a world turned upside down, will love or duty prevail?


I always look forward to this author's books!
Sundin well... she fabulous! 
I was sad when this book ended. I didn't want to put it down!
Page after page will keep your attention and excitement will build because you'll want to see what happens to Lucie the ballerina. 
I like how Sundin brings Lucie and Paul to life! 
Another reason I loved this book so much was the settings. 
I kinda don't want to say because it says it in the blurb of the book.
But anyway I felt the fear, love , hate hope all the things that make a great story. 
This will be put on my keeper shelf to be savored as a reread in the future. It's my favorite of Sundin's so far.
I can't wait to see what her next story will be! I definitely know it won't disappoint! They never do!
My thanks for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
