Reviews - What do customers think about Shadow of His Hand (Daughters of the Faith Series)?

Shadow of His Hand  Feb 23, 2006
Among us were the crippled and old
Brought here by Hitler and his followers
`Cause we are different from the rest
Does Vati, Dad, know that we are struggling?
Eating is a privilege because
Food is hard to find and scarce. There's no telling when the
Gestapo will knock on your door asking you to leave.
In these hardships, I turn to God for help
Ja, I'm a Jew and I believe in God. I may never see my
Kin again for they have separated me and Mutti. "Meir
Liebling," My sweetheart, as my mother always called me. How I wish
Mutti was here with me.
Now, they are moving us to another camp for the war is closer.
Open fire, is all around us now. All we can do is
Pray for God to protect us. Protect Mutti, Vati, and Hilde
Quietness is all we hear since we escaped.
Realizing that the war is closing. I see that the
Shadow of God's Hand has been upon me.
The search for my family is on:
Under the circumstances, I would never see Mutti again.
Vati may also be dead or in jail.
What was I going to do without my mom or sister?
eXamining my mother's camp, I found nothing. I stood there
Yearning for my family. I was
Zealous when I saw something in the distance.
Heart-stopping/Faith-Growing  Jan 27, 2005
Wendy's new book, Shadow of His Hands, is written in such a way that you are taken back in time to see, hear and feel what Anita Dittman saw, heard and felt! It touched my heart to know that the story was true for no child should ever experience what Anita did. Written for children to understand and feel what it is like to be picked on and hated for what they believe but instead of getting bitter or wanting revenge,this book shows children how to depend on God for each day--some times each hour. Great job, Wendy!!! Highly recommend this book for not only children to read but those adults who need to know the truth about the Holocaust.
Captured But Not Overcome  Sep 3, 2004
Anita Dittman gave up much in her brief childhood--dancing shoes, a teddy bear, her family, and nearly her life. Wendy Lawton paints a riveting picture of a real Jewish girl who struggled for existence during the Holocaust of Nazi Germany.
When others lost their faith, Anna Dittman was determined to find hers. I ached for this fragile girl who lived under the shadow of Hitler but survived under the greater hand of God.
The Daughter of Faith series has captivated this reader and Shadow of His Hand will inspire you as well.
Another winner from Wendy Lawton  Sep 1, 2004
I have read several of the books in Wendy Lawton's Daughters of the Faith series, inspiring stories of young girls who made a difference. Each one held my attention and caused me to identify with the main character. Wendy Lawton has written another winner in SHADOW OF HIS HAND, the account of holocaust survivor Anita Dittman.

The story opens when Anita is six years old and an aspiring ballerina. Soon all dreams of a dancing career are shattered-along with the lives of many of her family, friends, and neighbors in Nazi Germany. Anita's Aryan father deserts his family for political reasons. Anita, her Jewish mother, and her sister struggle with increasing persecution and hardships. The family is forced apart, and Anita and her mother end up in different concentration camps. When Anita escapes, just before the arrival of the Russian liberation army, she travels a dangerous course to find if her mother is dead or alive. Lawton shows the evil of the Nazi regime and the holocaust without excessive graphic details. Anita learns that no matter what, she can trust her loving heavenly Father.

This is the sixth and final book in the Daughters of the Faith series. Look for Wendy Lawton's new Real TV series books, CHANGING FACES and FLIP FLOP.
Shadow of His Hand  Aug 24, 2004
SHADOW OF HIS HAND by Wendy Lawton demonstates her masterful story telling in a gripping tale about a young Jewish girl who finds Jesus when the world around her falls apart.
