WHEN THE HEART SINGS
BY LIZ TOLSMA
Welcome, Liz. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
I hope that they take away the truth that joy doesn’t come from our circumstances or from getting what we want, but that our only source of true joy is the Lord.
What is your favorite dessert? If you don’t like sweets. What is your favorite meal?
My favorite dessert is gluten-free crepes with Nutella and whipped cream. Yummmm.
How do people react when they find out you write?
It’s so funny. Many of them are so excited to meet a “real writer”. They want to talk to me about writing and my books. Sometimes they even want to take a picture with me.

Please tell us a little about your novel, When the Heart Sings.
Natia has a secret—and she’s hiding him right beneath her captor’s nose.
In 1943 Poland, the Nazis have forced Natia and Teodor from their peaceful farm to the harsh confines of a labor camp. When the couple is separated, Natia is chosen to be the housekeeper for the camp’s overseer, and Teodor is sent to work in the factory. Despite the strict camp rules—and the consequences for disobeying them—Natia finds a way to communicate with Teodor by sending messages through song as she passes Teodor’s dormitory.
The stakes get higher when Natia finds a Jewish orphan on the overseer’s doorstep. She is determined to protect the boy and raise him as the child she and her husband were unable to bear—but if her German captors discover how much she’s hiding, both she and Teodor may pay the ultimate price.)
