Ep. 85: Kristin Harmel, Author of The Forest of Vanishing Stars

This week my guest is Kristin Harmel, whose new historical novel, The Forest of Vanishing Stars, is about a young woman who uses her knowledge of the wilderness to help Jewish refugees escape the Nazis during World War II. This is such a compelling, heart wrenching read and hearing about the inspiration for this novel and the research Kristin did was fascinating. I hope you tune in and of course, pick up a copy of the book.

With breathtaking natural descriptions, vivid historical details, and a brave heroine worth cheering for who must fulfill a destiny prophesied since birth, this novel is not to be missed!
