Children of the Stars (by Mario Escobar) … touching story of determination and bravery

What a touching story about two young boys during the Nazi invasion. This saga is full of survival, love, loss, sacrifice, fear, and bravery. While I might question the ability of two boys to travel from Paris to Argentina, the story is still amazing. There were people along the way who were willing to resist the evil Hitler spread during his reign to help these young boys to find their parents.

I love books based during WWII and having read “Auschwitz Lullaby” by the author, I knew this would be a well-researched and heartbreaking book. Though the two boys, Jacob and Moses, are fictional characters, many of the characters and the situations described throughout the pages are based on fact.

The relationship between the brothers was precious. And the connection they shared with so many people was touching.

Thank you to NetGalley and Thomas Nelson Publishers for an ARC in exchange for my honest review. I was honored to have an opportunity to read such an amazing book!
