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!
