How Huge the Night by Heather and Lydia Munn

ISBN-10: 082543310X

ISBN-13: 978-0825433108

Category: Young Adult

How Huge the Night by Heather and Lydia Munn is a story based on true events that occurred prior to and during WWII. Though this book is marketed for young adults, it is a phenomenal story that reaches out to all ages.

The authors did a superb job of blending historical events into a tale that will grab your heart and not let go. The characters are compelling and though this is a rather dark story lightened by faith in God, it is one that I plan to read with my teen son's. This story will stay with me for a long, long time. I admit, it was hard emotionally to read through some of the horrific events that occurred in WWII but this book so worth reading!

I also appreciated the "historical notes" section at the end of the book which helped establish for me, the parts of the book where fiction blended with fact.

I highly encourage you to read this book; I give it five stars!

Many thanks to Kregel Publications for the opportunity to review this book. My review is based only on my own thoughts and feelings as I read this book.

I watched the trailer and I can just imagine how this book would impact people. I think It would be great for me to read it to my older son's too.
