About the Book
Book: Capturing Hope
Author: Angela K Couch
Genre: Historical Christian Fiction
Release Date: November, 2023
One step ahead of the Nazi’s. . .leaves Nadia little room for hope.
Full of intrigue, adventure, and romance, this new series celebrates the unsung heroes—the heroines of WWII.
After her father is murdered by Nazis and her mother flees to her native Germany, hope is something of which Nadia Roenne feels little—even if it is the meaning of her name. It isn’t until an American photographer sacrifices his escape from Poland to save a Jewish family, that she finds a purpose. David Reid is very familiar with failure, but when he is charged with getting Nadia safely out of Poland, he is determined to succeed—even if she works against him at every turn, putting other’s lives ahead of her own. While they race against the daily shower of bombs over Warsaw and the ever-nearing German army, Nadia grows used to risking her life. . .but dare she risk her heart?

About the Author
More from Angela
When I first decided to set a story during the invasion of Poland, I was woefully unprepared for the pain and horror I found there. I wasn’t new to World War II and had just finished writing A Rose for the Resistance, which is set in France during the war and deals with the resistance and the Normandy invasion. The atrocities and genocide in Poland cut so much deeper.
In the early hours of September 1, 1939, the small town of Wielun, Poland, woke to a shower of bombs on their community. They did not house an army or warehouses, only homes and civilian businesses. Wielun was not the only town or village targeted—demonstrating the Nazi goal to spread fear and death. Six months earlier, Hitler had promised that if Poland did not bow to his wishes, he would wipe them off the map. Over the next month, and more so in the following six years, he came very close to succeeding.
For the full month of September 1939, while German armies rolled across the country, the city of Warsaw endured daily bombardment. Homes, workplaces, churches on Sunday morning, the Warsaw maternity hospital— nowhere was safe. On the tenth of September, someone recorded seventeen separate air raids over the city. I was moved to tears while viewing photographs of women and children who had been shot in the streets and fields by the bombers after they had dropped their payloads over the city.
No one came to their rescue.
Poland was abandoned by its allies to the Nazis.
So how do you write about all that and more while still trying to keep hope alive in the story and in the characters who have to live through such a frightening and demoralizing history?
I invite you to read Capturing Hope to find out.

I have loved all of the books from the multi author series, Heroines of WWII, and was excited to get the opportunity to have the newest installment, Angela K Couch’s Capturing Hope. I really enjoyed this action packed story with Nadia and David. It had a lot of suspense that had a lot of twists and turns I could not have been able to predict. Great novel to read!
I am giving Capturing Hope a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who love reading clean historical fiction, particularly those centered around the World War II era in history. I will be looking forward to more books like this one from Angela K Couch in the future.
I received a paperback copy of Angela K Couch’s Capturing Hope from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
