Olivia Garza is just a voice on the air waves.  She is an anonymous narrator of a docu-series that has gone viral.  With a camera in her hand, she is retracing her mother’s footsteps to discover the truth about her past.  Olivia has promised to reveal herself when she arrives at her last stop…Kenya.  When Prince Louis flees to Kenya after his heart is broken, he meets Olivia and she sounds very familiar to him.  He recognizes her voice from the document-series.    Olivia and Prince William become victims of the paparazzi when the cameras start to snap pictures of them.  She believes her dreams are crushed.  Then she is hired for yet another documentary about another royal, Princess Alessandra Appiani.  Alessandra risked her life and her family’s life to save Jewish children during World War II.  Olivia is faced with her own life changing decisions to make.  

Trust the Stars written by author Tricia Goyer is a wonderful time slip novel.  Goyer is amazing at taking the reader from where they are and transporting them to Kenya, Africa.  The awesome description of the sights and sounds makes you feel as if you are actually in Kenya.  I love the plot twist and turns of this story, especially with the time slip to Rome during World War II.  I also, thoroughly enjoyed the acts of faith demonstrated in this book.  This heart warming and inspiring story hits all the feels.  The characters are very enjoyable, and I loved each and every one of them.  This is a phenomenal story that needs to be added to your “to be read” pile.  Do not pass up this unforgettable and unputdownable read.  I highly recommend it.

Olivia Garza, a woman committed to making a difference in the world, thrives in her unconventional, service-oriented life. By day, she helps troubled teens in inner-city Little Rock. By night, she creates a viral docu-series in an attempt to better understand her mother’s desperate decisions by retracing her steps with a camera. So far, Olivia has always been the anonymous narrator, but she’s promised to reveal herself in the last stop on her documentary: Kenya.

Prince Louis, heir to the throne of the small European kingdom of Alloria, is in Kenya to run away from a broken heart—and the media circus that comes with it. When he meets Olivia, he recognizes her voice right away from the docu-series that has stirred his heart. Though they share a magical day on safari, any dreams of happily ever after come crashing down with the flash of the paparazzi cameras when Olivia realizes that he represents everything she most despises in the world.

In World War II Rome, another royal, however, has her own life-changing choices to make. Princess Alessandra Appiani could have chosen quiet safety within the walls of the Vatican, but instead she risks her life—and her family—to save the Jewish children so in need of someone to show them the love of God.

When Olivia is hired to help create a documentary about Alessandra, learning about the sacrifice of a royal who goes from palace to prison forces her to face the hardest questions of all: Should she continue on the path she’s carved for herself or trust God to give her the future she never thought she wanted?
