Now faith is the substance of things hoped for....

Hungary's fragile alliance with Germany kept Natalie, a renowned children's book author, and her family out of harm's way for most of the war. As the Führer's desperation grows during the waning years of the conflict, so does its threat. Natalie's younger sister, Ilona, married a Jewish man, putting both her and her young daughter, Mila, in peril; Natalie's twin sister, Anna, is losing her already tenuous hold on reality. As the streets of Budapest thrum with the pounding boots of Nazi soldiers, danger creeps to the doorstep where Natalie shields them all.

Ilona and her husband take the last two tickets to safety for themselves, abandoning Natalie to protect Anna and Mila from the encroaching danger. Anna's paranoid explosion at a university where she was once a professor, sparked by delusions over an imagined love triangle, threatens their only other chance for escape. Ultimately, Natalie is presented with a choice no one should ever have to make: Which of her family will she save?

An inspirational story of faith and family, strength and weakness, and the ultimate triumph of love over hate. Mrs. Tuesday's Departure demonstrates the power of faith to light even the most harrowing darkness....

Faith is the evidence of things not seen.

    " Rapid and easy read. Engaging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/8/2014

    " This book had interesting characters and took place during a hard time in history in Budapest. The main character is trying to hide a jewish neice from the nazis. I enjoyed this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 2/7/2014

    " I was very disappointed in this book. I love the genre and the historical period in which this book was set and in the begining, I thought it had potentional to be a great book. I was wrong. The grammatical errors erre very distracting, from misplaced or incorrectly used punctuation, words left out of sentences or used incorrectly. There was also inconsistency in the writing. At one point a hand would be in a characters lap and the next paragraph, it wasbeing released by another character. The story, especially the ending, seemed very rushed. Almost like the author just wanted to get it done.Very disappointing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vikki | 1/13/2014

    " I enjoyed the premise and the writing but I felt that overall it was too short and too many loose ends. I was not satisified with the end of any of the character's story lines. They just...ended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Cotterill | 1/12/2014

    " This is a poignant historical fiction novel set in Nazi-occupied Budapest. It was a difficult read in places, as it's almost impossible to imagine a happy ending for Jewish characters in a Nazi city - but it's nicely told with plenty of detail that made the characters and places feel real. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen Gaarder kumm | 1/8/2014

    " I enjoyed parts of this book but was constantly trying to figure it out, it was hard to follow and I really disliked the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathee | 12/7/2013

    " There were a few words missing within the content. An "of" or a "the" here and there. This bothers me but not enough to keep me from enjoying the story. Nicely written. Heartfelt. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alison | 8/20/2013

    " An incredibly poignant story, difficult to read at times because of the subject matter but worth taking time over. There are some confusing shifts in narrative from chapter to chapter but it all falls into place. Not a masterpiece but an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ammy | 8/10/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book since it was the imagined background to a real journal that was published after WWII. It provides a backstory as to the why the journal may have been writen along with an unglossed look at the turmoil of war on everyday families. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Woodside | 7/4/2013

    " Book started off really good and was interesting but it seemed like the author ran out of steam and just ended the book. More history would have been better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele bookloverforever | 6/10/2013

    " interesting, bittersweet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia Guinea | 4/28/2013

    " The ending kind of left me hanging. Because of that I only gave this book 4 stars. But it was a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 1/21/2013

    " Another interesting story of a family and their attempt to save themselves from the Nazis. Involved a young girl abandoned by her mother and her aunts, one of which is mentally ill and puts them in danger with her antics. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 j | 12/8/2012

    " something wonky happened in this book and i couldn't go on. it started about page 55 when it starts in on the 1952 publishing. it just jilted the story for me and i couldn't pick it back up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheryl | 11/25/2012

    " I would have given this more stars but it kind of ended abruptly just when you were getting really interested. It takes place during World War II in Budapest Hungary. It's about a grandmother trying to keep her granddaughter safe who is part Jewish.Still it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 8/31/2012

    " This was by far one of the best books I've read this year. Excellent WWII historical fiction. "
