Compelling Story of Survival - Courage Born of Faith

One of the reasons we love doing what we do--converting manuscripts and publishing eBooks--is that we get to read some of the best books by new authors. This is one of those times. Courage Born of Faith by Edward Boersma is a radically comprehensive story of a Dutch family which survived the NAZI yoke during the occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. Hiding and feeding Jews was the right thing to do, but HARD, since survival was never guaranteed for the one offering aid or the Jew. The author, Edward Boersma, did a compelling job of telling about his family which lived through it all, survived, and like Job in the Old Testament, gained rich blessings.

The book is available as a paperback on Amazon and as an eBook on Smashwords.

 

Extended Description:

Heading westward into the wind, ten year old Eddie pedaled his bike as hard as he could. Ahead of him was his mother, also on her bike; behind him, two “uncles” recruited by his father to oversee this little caravan as it fled to safety into the early morning darkness. There was a suitcase on each bike. Eddie’s two little sisters each sat on a suitcase behind an “uncle.” They traveled to a small town named Zweeloo, 25 to 30 miles from their home. The going was hard, with headwinds, and fear of German checkpoints. One of the “uncles” pulled Eddie along with a piece of rope. Little did Eddie know this would not be the last time they were forced to flee, to run and hide. Would they be caught next time, or worse yet, killed? Where is dad all through this? Why isn’t he here helping us? "Courage Born of Faith…An Account Of Survival Under The Nazi Yoke…" is a well told account of this family who lived through it all, survived, and like Job in the Old Testament, gained rich blessings.

Creative Developer , Web Designer and All Around Geek


April has such a passion for technical innovation and graphic design, we swear she'd be designing web pages even if she didn't get paid. Back in the mid-80s, she convinced us to switch our entire production department to personal computers when the Macintosh was just a gleam in Steve Job's eye. An award-winning journalist who ventured into the self-publishing field, she was enlisted by several print and publishing groups to train graphic designers on the value of the personal computer. She was present for what became known as the desktop publishing revolution. Always eager to learn, she traded her technical knowledge with the talents of graphic designers and became a sought-after graphic designer. Still not satisfied, April caught the wave of web design launching websites back when a telephone line was required to get on the internet. Since then, she's been keeping us on the fast-track to internet technologies. Her guiding theme: "If a customer needs it, I can figure out how to do it, and how to make it easily accessible for the client."
