The Boat Runner
A NovelBook - 2017
In the summer of 1939, fourteen-year-old Jacob Koopman and his older brother Edwin enjoy lives of prosperity and quiet contentment. Many of the residents in their small Dutch town have some connection to the Koopman lightbulb factory, and the locals hold the family in high esteem. Conflict seems unthinkable, even as the boys' father naively sends his sons to a Hitler Youth Camp in an effort to secure German business for the factory. When war breaks out, Jacob's world is thrown into chaos.
