"This is no sappy, quasi-Christian literature; this is the real deal...the proverbial diamond in the rough...I am going to see that the library at Heritage Christian school, where my children are enrolled, has several copies..." - Tom Bergman, editor, Perspectives, Spring Issue 2012
Who would have thought...????
When the Kroontje family moved into their second tiny house, they had no idea that within months of their move Uncle Bill Tilstra would be assigned to the USS Arizona, the first ship Japan bombed in Pearl Harbor. Nor did they know that three of Uncle Bill's ships would be destroyed - but that he would be spared from death in ways that were clearly God's providential care...yet so horrific that he hated talking about the war.
While war loomed in the background and Uncle Bill was always on the family's mind, Katherine's farm life continued with a mixture of stories - some humorous, some serious, some full of neighborliness, some with tragedy.
Join the Kroontje family - living daily life on an Iowa farm even while World War II is being fought across the oceans.
