About Book

This is a story set in World War Two, in Nazi-occupied Holland, recorded by a little girl called Mientje.

 

Mientje had a cosy life until it was disturbed badly by the invasion of the Netherlands. Her father and eldest brother were taken, forcefully, by the Gestapo to do hard labour in Germany. Her courageous, inventive and loving mother was left to keep the remaining family together.

 

Mientje missed her father and brother and tried to write and draw letters to them, most of which never reached their destination. She could not understand the significance of the War.

 

Mientje's schooling was fraught with difficulties, as the school was commandeered for the German soldiers. Friendships, calamaties and bullying (due to her inward-growing left foot) are all as she experienced them.

 

The joyous liberation of her hometown by the British and Canadian forces was tremendous, yet an even greater surprise was in store for them.
