A Perfect Choice for Historical-Fiction Readers | When the Heart Sings by Liz Tolsma

Welcome to the blog tour & giveaway for When the Heart Sings by Liz Tolsma, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Natia has a secret, and she’s hiding him right beneath her captor’s nose…

The Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their Polish farm to a labor camp. When the couple is separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules—and the consequences for disobeying them—Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.

The stakes get higher when Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear— but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.

The second in the Music of Hope series by Liz Tolsma, When the Heart Sings is a perfect choice for readers who enjoy historical fiction, especially when it takes place during World War II. The story delves into the experience of Polish Christians, Natia and Teodor. The couple is immensely likeable, and their experience throughout the book tugged at my heartstrings. From start to finish, it is emotionally captivating, a page-turner that does not disappoint. I recommend it. 


Thanks to JustRead Tours, I received a complimentary copy of When the Heart Sings and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.


Passionate might best describe Liz Tolsma. She loves writing, research, and editing. Her passion shone through in her first novel which was a double award finalist. On any given day, you might find her pulling weeds in her perennial garden, walking her hyperactive dog, or curled up with a good book. Nothing means more to her than her family. She’s married her high-school sweetheart twenty-eight years ago. Get her talking about international adoption, and you might never get her to stop. She and her husband adopted three children, including a son who is a U.S. Marine, and two daughters.
