    Wonderfully written book and hard to believe thiswas Cindy's 1st book. This is part of a trilogy. I lovehow the characters are developed and how thebook finds us all over Austria.Great job weaving the past w/ present. Over &over the book's theme is to live each day like it'syour last. One day we ALL will stand before God andgive an account for how we lived. Let's hear'Well done good & faithful servant.

    I didn't realize until searching for this book on that this was the first book of a Trilogy. Guess I know what I'll be looking for on my next trip to the library.I liked this book, even if it was a bit predictable at times. It made me consider some tough questions, especially about my own motives for different actions and decisions. I would give it more like a 3.5 rating if I could.

    This book was very well written and wonderful because of the Holocaust history woven through it. The descriptions of the memorials were vivid and the book raised some great questions for the reader to ask themselves while the characters are doing the same thing. Very good book for anyone with a love of history--especially anything surrounding WW2.

    This was a great book, especially for those who love WWII historical fiction. I felt as if I was in Austria myself. And although this is fiction, it's amazing to think that stories similar to this one happened all the time during the War. Can't wait to read the next two in the trilogy.

    Goodness I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As much as I know about WWII, especially the Jews & Christians who were killed. But I didn't remember that there was a concentration camp in Austria. This book made me want to visit Austria.

    I've set my year off on the right foot by reading Winter Passing. It's an epic tale of a woman's pursuit of her family's history.When her grandmother passes on, Darby Evans latches onto the dying wish -- that Darby visits Austria and sets things aright, concerning her grandmother's best friend. Grandmother Celia, born in Austria, escaped during World War II after the country was overtaken by the German occupation. Upon the start of her investigation, she starts to realize that her grandmother le [...]

    The story posed some difficult questions and provided interesting historical detail. I am glad I read it.However, there is one pet peeve I have, even more than someone "shoving religion down your throat": When they try to sneak it up on you. It is the most noticeable and annoying thing, whether the writer/speaker (supposedly) doesn't realize s/he is trying to convert you. I have nothing against any of the peaceful religions of the world, but I do have something against people who cannot understa [...]

    Oh wow, I thoroughly enjoyed this story that spanned generations!!! Darby's Austrian grandmother, Celia, has so many secrets from her past that come to life after her death. Darby goes in search of answers in Austria, and finds the answers she seeks and many more. The whole story is extremely well written, and I didn't want it to end! (spoiler: I cried a few times) Martinusen brought so many characters to life in Winter Passing, and taught me much about what Austria was like during World War 2, [...]

    A story of a women who, in keeping a deathbed promise to her grandmother, goes to Austria to "give Tatianna her name back" and to find her family inheritance. Darby's grandmother, pregnant with Darby's mother, had fled Austria in 1941. When her husband did not meet her in NYC as planned, the grandmother wrote to a friend and was told he had died, and so she began her new life as a single mother. Darby grew up knowing little about her family history and goes off to Austria with little information [...]

    I have had this book sitting on my shelf for several years. One day I picked it up and started reading the first page and I was hooked! I have to admit I let a lot of things go while reading this book, I just didn't want to put it down. I have never been able to study about the Nazi occupation or the concentration camps because it has always made me so sad. After reading this book I have been starting to research that time in history. This is the authors first novel, I was amazed! She did a fant [...]

    This summer I have read several novels that were set during WWII, and I am so intrigued by that time. This is set in modern times, but the plot was begun during the Nazi takeover of Austria. Cindy Martinusen has really done her research and it shows. I would have given this book 5 stars but it was too predictable for me, even though I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. I just finished her 2nd in this trilogy and now am on to the 3rd. A very good, interesting read. It made me want to [...]

    The mystery and historical aspect intrigued me to pick this up. Although I could figure out the ending early on, it still had many moments which moved me and surprised me.At the end, I would have like to have slapped Brant for still being filled with doubts and Darby for being stupid a second time about a strange car, but knew a happy ending was still in the cards.

    I enjoyed this book. The author included beautiful details about Austria and interesting facts about the Holocaust. I wouldn't call it a mystery, as you could see what was coming a mile away, but overall it was a good read. Interesting Christian turn at the end.

    really cool mystery story that talked a lot about nazi germany during the war, which i find fascinating. there was some people finding jesus toward the end, but the author didn't really force it down your throat.quick read

    I really enjoyed this book. I love to read stories that have anything to do with World War 2 and Concentration camps. I thought this was a really well written book.

    Historical Fiction including WWII and Holocaust survivors-1st book of 3 which are better if you read them in orderExcellent read

    Yet another novel listed under my library's e-fiction as "suspense," but, in fact, a Christian novel—and not a well-written one, at that.

    Beautifully written. I couldn't put it down. It had everything you could want in a book. Love, tragedy, history, triumph, Love of God and more. I loved it! Must Read!

    Love the delving into history and showing the struggling and issues that holocaust generation dealt with. We all have our heart searching times.

    Had its ups and down but loved it at the end. Stayed up past 2:00 am Christmas morning in attempt to finish it
