Through the eyes of a young boy we see the extraordinary resilience of this courageous family as they live and work on the canals and rivers of Holland and Europe during one of the darkest periods of modern times. Jan Deurwaarder tells his story with frankness and simplicity. Yes, this is a tale of war with all its horrors of death and violence and betrayal. But woven through are moments of joy and peace and beauty, even humor, always hope. This English translation by the authors daughter now makes this absorbing account available to a wider audience.
