But Not Forsaken

Helen G. Brenneman

Like other German cities, Krauter became a blacked out vacuum at night. But tonight Hans felt it was especially quiet. Something must be wrong.

Finally Hans arrived at Felderstrasse 21. “Maria,” he hissed. No one answered. Heart pounding, Hans entered the house. Except for a few scattered possessions and a rumpled bed on the floor, the place was deserted. His wife and children were gone! Hans buried his face in his hands, fighting despair. Who might know where they had gone?

Caught in the terrors of World War II, Hans and Maria Penner fled Russia with their family in a daring and dangerous flight for freedom. Tragically separated, each feared the other was lost or dead. Hoping against hope, each continued west.

A gripping story of the Penners’ desperate quest, But Not Forsaken will open your eyes to the horrors of war and strengthen your faith in the Faithful One who never leaves nor forsakes His own.
