Winter in Wartime
Winter in Wartime is a gripping adventure story about one boy’s experience in the secret resistance in Nazi-occupied Holland.
In the winter of 1944-45, Holland has been at war since Michiel was eleven. He’s now sixteen, and his village is under Nazi occupation. No longer at school, Michiel spends his days running urgent errands and avoiding the German occupiers. He is asked by a member of the resistance to help care for a wounded British pilot. An act of brutal revenge following the death of a German soldier makes Michiel’s life even more fraught with danger. Furthermore, Michiel suspects that there are traitors in the village.
