Remember the Lilies
Thomas Nelson / February 3, 2015 / $15.99 print, $9.99 digital
Interred by the Japanese, missionary Irene Reynolds comes across a mysterious note while working at the censor’s office. She memorizes the parts she must black out and delivers it to wealthy nightclub owner Rand Sterling. Before she knows what’s happening, she’s drawn into a web of secrets and danger.
Rand Sterling wants nothing more than to reopen his nightclubs once the war ends. But slimy Frank Covey wants his hand in the till—and has news that could threaten Rand’s reputation if it became public. More importantly, beautiful and intriguing Irene Reynolds cannot discover this information if he expects to persuade her to become his wife.
When Irene is attacked by a sinister Japanese guard and their secrets are exposed, they must learn the true meaning of forgiveness—if they can stave off starvation until the American troops bring freedom.
The glamour of the 1930s Champagne Crowd collides with the 1940s realities of war to create an intriguing read in Liz Tolsma’s Remember the Lilies. Hero Rand Sterling is the backbone of the Champagne Crowd in his part of the Orient. He worked hard and saw his dream become a reality, and now owns two highly successful nightclubs in the Philippines.
