In the final Novella What the Heart Sees by Liz Tolsma takes us to Hartford Wisconsin in 1944. American woman Miriam Kohn is more than a little surprised to see Paul Abrecht her summer fling in 1939 escorted into a church as a POW. Will they be able to rekindle there romance despite everyone’s objections.
