Reviews of : The Boy Between Worlds by Annejet van der Zijl PDF Book
Inside this Book – Amazing human story about a white Dutch woman and her much younger black Suriname lover-turned-husband from before World War II and leading into the midst of the conflict. The book delves into individuals backgrounds before the couples’ eventual meeting, the ensuing relationship, and finally their struggles during the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands. I’m very pleased with this Amazon First Reads pickup and while the book is “new”, apparently it’s been around and beloved for many years over in the Netherlands. The tale of Rika and Waldemar is even a 2011 Dutch film called Sonny Boy. While I’m ignorant on the amount of writing that can be attributed to the original author vs. the translator, the literary nonfiction style was excellent and suited the story perfectly. There are many different timelines and people involved, yet it was told succinctly. High quality, engrossing, and just an all-around great read.
Inside this book –The Boy Between Worlds PDF Book by Annejet van der Zijl – This is the emotionally stirring story of unlikely lovers who brave the bigotry of their era, only to be victims of the even larger forces of history at work in World War II. The plight of Anna (a lively and charismatic woman) and her much younger second husband Waldemar (an immigrant from the Dutch colony of Suriname), and the fate of their only child, Waldy, after his parents are murdered in the Nazi concentration camp for the crime of harboring Jews in their boarding house is unforgettable. Waldemar is unique as a biracial young man in post WWII Netherlands—and his search for his own path in life is sure to engage even the hardest hearts.
