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.

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.”

    An inspiring story of a two women whose legacy of faith influenced many for generations.

    Mainly focusing on Johanna, and her husband, Abraham "Bram" Kuyper, I found this an interesting read, not knowing anything about the Dutch reformers, or history of the Netherlands in the 1800's. Johanna's life legacy passed down to her children, especially daughter "Harry", was encouraging to read, as she taught them that the Lord gave them all unique personalities, to guard their hearts and live authentic lives that honor Him. She heeded her own father's advice not to "lose herself" in serving and supporting her husband, but to use her gifts to help others, with grace and faith, teaching others to read and love them in Christ. Abraham and Johanna's love story was a unique one, and fun to read. Their daughter "Harry" was an interesting person, helping others as her mother had, but also respectfully working towards and achieving social reforms.

    I enjoyed reading the author's notes at the end too, with photos and the history of the real people in the book, noting how their lives "encourage us to honor God and stay true to the person He created each of us to be." It would have been helpful to have more dates in the story for reference.

    Recommend for teens and up who enjoy reading Christian biographical fiction.
