A Dutch Florist in WWII Amsterdam

Late 1944, Nazi-occupied Amsterdam. After more than four long years of war in the Netherlands, young Lotte Fortuijn prays for liberation. She has navigated betrayals and endured great losses while remaining steady in her faith. Yet now the very survival and wellbeing of those she holds dear hinges on many hopes and plans. A cold, long winter is ahead, and dark clouds of doubt and pain permeate Amsterdam. Shifting relationships and unexpected opportunities will cause Lotte to question all she believes. As Dutch citizens pray for relief for North Holland, how will Lotte’s beloved Amsterdam endure, and how can she navigate such devastating moments?

This dynamic and meaningful story highlights the allegiances and sacrifices of ordinary Dutch citizens during a precarious and momentous time in modern history.
