J. Tangelder in Christian Renewal: This book begins with the story of Polle and Henderkien Eijsinga, great-grandparents of the author. The author also tells about her own experiences growing up in a new country, the people she came to know, as well as the tales and happenings she heard or read about. Each story is inspirational and Christ-centered and shows how God guides and sustains His people in times of joy, dangers, and sorrow. The poems which precede each chapter show the work of a God-fearing craftsman. A welcome addition to one's personal or church library.
