The Crooked Path
By Irma Joubert
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Historical
Release Date: 11/07/17

Lettie Louw spent her adolescence in World War II-era South Africa feeling like an ugly duckling. So she focused on schoolwork and becoming a doctor. Meanwhile, Marco Romanelli spent much of the war hiding in the harsh mountains of occupied Italy to protect his Jewish fiancée and her family. Troops eventually capture them and ship them to a concentration camp.

With his health in tatters and his heart broken, Marco relocates to South Africa. There he meets Lettie, his new physician. As she nurses him back to health, a deep attraction grows between them.

Joubert offers this third book in a trilogy including the best-selling The Girl from the Train. Though containing fascinating settings and time periods, this book is rather simplistic. Includes a cast of characters, glossary, and discussion questions.
