Publisher's Summary

Smuggled out of Nazi Germany after working in the resistance, Louisa finds herself waiting out the war in a dusty Arizona copper mining town. Sponsored by the Reverend Robert Gordon, Louisa quickly discovers he is hiding a tragic secret. Louisa irritates, intrigues, and charms Robert, soon becoming an indispensable part of his household. Trouble begins to brew when Friedrich Mueller, a prominent resident of Copper Springs and avid Nazi sympathizer, ferrets out Louisa's background.
Soon Louisa is once again running for her life. Can she outfox a fox like Mueller? Or will she be sent back to Germany as a hostage exchange, facing certain death?

Interesting Tale of WWII Theft and Deceit in US

Although Copper Star isn't listed as historical fiction, it is set in the late 19830s to 1945, during WWII in a small copper mining town in Arizona . . . the historical facts relating to Dietrich Bonhoeffer are correct, although I cannot substantiate a connection to the pastor in this book . . . he was friends with American pastors . . . nor can I connect him to Louisa, the Jewish refugee, although he helped many to escape Nazi Germany . . . I find no record of a Friedrich Mueller (or anyone else) connected to German Nazi's or a plot in Arizona which robbed citizens of their money and riches . . . although it makes for a great tale . . . all that said, this is a wonderful story of the daughter of Jewish parents, who is now a Christian, who, has escaped to America . . . to Arizona . . . to live with a family, a pastor, his deaf son and their aunt . . . Robert Gordon is a stiff, reserved man and his aunt is a no-nonsense woman that is harsh and hard to get to know . . . but in time Louisa cracks their hard shells . . . and finds herself especially drawn to little William . . . Robert finds Louisa's boldness irritating and disconcerting . . . until, little by little, Louisa even gains entrance into Robert's world . . . this is a book filled with the sweetness of God's grace and mercy . . . the writing is wonderful, insightful . . . and healing . . . beyond anything you might imagine . . . it would have gotten five stars from me if I had been able to connect the history accurately . . .

great narration

I was lost in the story, i think helped by narrator who used her tone of voice to depict emotion, rather than just reading.
