About the Book

Jesus urges us to be “a light to the world.” Helen Donovan takes that command seriously, especially in the darkest of times. Helen’s journey through life ran parallel to the rise and fall of the Third Reich in Germany. Raised under Nazi tyranny, Helen experienced firsthand the terror of air raids and the sound of bombs falling outside.

Despite fear and violence, Helen’s light never dimmed thanks to her faith. Her faith is now an inspiration as she shares both her most heartbreaking and heartwarming moments in A War Bride’s Journey.

Helen reveals a time that may soon be forgotten as a whole generation slowly passes into eternity. She hopes to keep the memories alive and warn against the trap of dictatorship in the future. Leaning heavily on Jesus, Helen shares her story—or, perhaps, “His-story”—inspiring others to remain strong in adversity with God’s help.
