Simon has been assigned a very dangerous mission and his life is put in danger. His job as a spy for the Americans will find him dodging bullets and curious observations by German soldiers. It must have been very difficult to pretend you are a German soldier knowing at any minute your secret could be found out..
The story is very close to the biblical story of Rahab. I remember reading this story and thinking how powerful it was. Rolande is ridiculed for her sin but there is someone that sees past that and sees her inner beauty. Her comfort is in God and her goal is to save herself and her family from the war. I loved reading how Simon was able to have compassion for Rolande and know that she is a woman worthy to be loved. The relationship between them is slow and I liked how they each had to learn how to trust each other.
It was hard to put the book down and I was anxious as the war became more dangerous. The story makes you feel right there as Rolande tries to convince her family to trust her. She wants to save them but will they trust her? The ending is powerful and a great lesson in forgiveness, trust and judging others.
I received a copy of this book from the Celebrate Lit.. The review is my own opinion.
Ms. Shenton Matchett has written a great story that explores topics including survival, redemption, and trusting in God.
Rolande is our main character. She is a French woman forced into prostitution and eventually becomes a member of the French Resistance. Rolande is smart and resourceful and though she is aware of what her family and other people think of her, she is unapologetic about what she had to do to survive. She is hesitant to believe that God can use someone like her to do His work, but learns to trust that is true.
Simon is our other main character. He’s an American soldier who is tasked with infiltrating Paris to ascertain the locations of German troops before the Allied invasion of Paris. He’s a nice character who is uneasy about what he’s done in the war and takes an instant liking to Rolande.
Because this is a novella, the romance between Rolande and Simon feels rushed, but we expect that out of these shorter stories. Love’s Rescue felt extremely quick, however, and it spent a lot of time on the set up of the story that could’ve been discarded.
The novella is a very quick and easy read, but Ms. Shenton Matchett creates emotions and depth in the main characters that belies the shortness of the story. Despite the rushed romance, both Rolande and Simon are fully realized characters with motivations and character actions that make sense for their respective plotlines and characters.
I give Love’s Rescue 3/5 stars and can recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, somewhat satisfying read that explores themes of redemption and trust.
