  • Book Synopsis:

    On a summer day in 1945, Louisa Gordon receives a telegram from the International Red Cross Tracing Service.  Her young cousin, Elisabeth, has just been released from Dachau, a concentration camp, and Louisa is her only remaining relative.

    Determined to go to war-torn Germany to retrieve her cousin, Louisa is also on a mission to discover the whereabouts of Friedrich Mueller, a Nazi sympathizer who fled Copper Springs, Arizona.  What Louisa never expected was to meet the man she had once loved.  And now hated.

    Copper Fire is the second book in the Copper Star series.  I was thrilled as you don’t have to read the first one to be able to enjoy this story, although I for one have added it to my ever growing TBR list.  Louisa Gordon has tried to start a new life in Copper Springs.  She has left Germany, and although there are things that she misses, she knows that going back is not an option.  And, she is happy.  She is married to Robert, the pastor of the small community of Copper Springs.  But more importantly, she is raising his son William as her own.  The only obstacle she incurs on a daily basis is Robert’s Aunt Martha, who lives with him.  But, if this is the worst she has to deal with, she is more than capable.

    All this changes when one day she receives word that her cousin Elisabeth has been located in a Red Cross camp for displaced persons in Germany, and they are looking for someone to claim her before she is left to fend for herself.  After some fancy work, she is able to make the long trip abroad, which she has mixed feeling about.  She is so excited to be able to go an see Germany and claim her relative, but she is afraid of what effect seeing her country in its devestation will take on her. 

    I don’t believe in giving away too much of the plot but here is some food for thought:

    Elisabeth does come to live with Robert and Louisa, but is she more than they bargained for? 

    Louisa resumes contact with her former fiance, someone who hurt her so bad in the past but is trying to make up for it.  Are his intentions noble?

    Will Friedrich Mueller be found in Copper Springs, and if so what has brought him back?

    Suzanne has done an excellent job of spinning a tale to engage all readers, and by pulling in Nazis, concentration camps, theft, spies, and unconditional love, it would be hard to find someone who wouldn’t enjoy this book.

    2. I absolutely loved this book. I hadn’t read the first book in this series–which I wish I had because I found this one so fascinating. I’ll certainly be looking for more books from this author.
