This acclaimed story of World War II is rich in suspense, characterization, plot and spiritual truth. Every element of occupied Holland is united in a story of courage and hope: a hidden Jewish child, an "underdiver, " a downed RAF pilot, an imaginative, daring underground hero, and the small things of family life which surprisingly carry on in the midst of oppression. The Verhagen family who live in the old windmill called the WInged Watchman are a memorable set of individuals whose lives powerfully demonstrate the resilence of those who suffer but do not lose faith. Book is new.
This is a wonderful children's book that I highly recommend. It takes place in Holland during World War 2. It is a well written story, and shows what life was like for the people living in Holland during that time.
