Liberation 1944-45 (soft cover)
by Lini R. Grol « View this author's BIO
I sobbed convulsively. I could not help thinking of my parents and all those I loved and would never see again, for this much I knew: if they investigated the car we all would be shot on the spot with the usual sign on us -- TRAITORS. And of course to them we were traitors. But life was so dear to me. I wanted to live in that lovely place of which I had dreamed since we had left the little farmhouse.
The people of Holland lost lives, homes and property during the Second World War, but never lost faith in an Allied Liberation they knew was soon to come.
Forced out of their home after it was ransacked and burned by occupying German forces, author Lini R. Grol and her family wandered the bombed-out Dutch countryside for weeks, sleeping in ditches, barns and basements as they waited for Liberation.
They faced danger at every turn. As Allied aircraft bombed German positions and the Nazis returned the fire, the homeless refugees were often caught in between.
Were it not for the undying Faith of her mother, Lini Grol might never have lived to tell her story. But God heard her pious mother's prayers and delivered them to safety time and again. "...our whole pilgrimage seemed to be guided by a hand that rescued us time and again at the moment of our greatest despair..."
Liberation is a story of hardship, courage and Faith, which will bring exciting inspiration to all who open its pages.
