Publisher's Description

As the 1800s draw to a close and a new century begins, forces for change are already at work in the Netherlands’ entrenched society when custom is further challenged by two bold women, Johanna Kuyper and her daughter Henriette. Johanna is a traditional wife eager to both support and challenge her strong-willed husband, Abraham Kuyper, a dominant leader in church, education, and politics. She serves her family and community through celebrations and sorrows, social upheaval and political conflicts. The more progressive Henriette Kuyper is an international traveler, champion of women’s suffrage, and wartime correspondent—among much else! Risking reproach and defying custom, both will find very different ways to change their world for good and for God’s sake.

Author Bio

With previous experience in journalism and editing, she now writes fiction. Johanna and Henriette Kuyper is her first novel.

Editorial Reviews

What could modern day teenagers possibly have in common with the Kuyper family? The Byrd women found that maybe one of the biggest impacts from Abigail van der Velde’s biographical novel is the way it made us consider how we glorify and honor the Lord by living faithfully to the unique personalities and gifts with which he has so graciously designed for each of us to contribute to his service. In that way, we sharpen one another and display a fuller picture of Christ.
“There were moments that I had the impression that I was reading a story of my parents’ family, how I was raised. I enjoyed reading this very much.”
