<p>It has been said that with the outbreak of the Second World War, Europe entered her darkest period in history. What was it like for a young child to live through those years of conflict and carnage in the Netherlands? Angelina Fast-Vlaar shares a tender, personal story of her impressions, questions, and panic against the backdrop of a loving extended family, living just thirty kilometres from the enemy border. She observes her parents deal with the Hitler-induced restrictions and atrocities with courage, resilience, and an unshakable faith in a loving God, while at the same time reaching out to provide food and shelter to the starving and homeless. The deafening noise of battle echoes on, as she innocently plays with siblings and cousins in their somewhat-protected back yard.</p>

<p>“This moving, true story, written by a skilled writer, deserves a place on the bookshelf of every home.”<br>
—Sense “Stan” de Jong,<br> former business manager of the <i>Christian weekly Calvinist Contact/Christian Courier</i>.</p>
