Wildflowers of Terezin is a sweeping historical novel set against a backdrop of danger and intrigue in World War II Denmark. During the war's darkest days, a Danish Lutheran pastor’s complacent faith is stretched to the breaking point when he meets a young Jewish nurse, Hanne Abrahamsen, and becomes involved in Resistance efforts to save Denmark’s Jews from the Nazi prison camp at Terezin, Czechoslovakia—also known as Theresienstadt.
At first challenged by his brother and swayed by his own attraction to Hanne, Pastor Steffen abandons his once quiet, uninvolved life and hesitantly volunteers to help smuggle Jews out of the country before a Nazi roundup. In the process, he finds that aiding his Jewish neighbors is the most decent, spiritual thing he has ever done. His faith deepens as he actually does God’s work, rather than just talk about it.
Meanwhile, Hanne must deal with her own survival when things go terribly wrong and she is sent to Terezin—a so-called "model" camp where the Nazis attempted to deceive the world into believing the Jews were being treated well. And while Steffen's protests grow more and more desperate, neither of them can imagine imagine the ultimate price of freedom.
