Summary "In the summer of 1939, fourteen-year-old Jacob Koopman and his older brother, Edwin, enjoy lives of prosperity and contentment. Many of the residents in their small Dutch town have some connection to the family's lightbulb factory. On days when they aren't playing with friends, Jacob and Edwin help their Uncle Martin on his fishing boat in the North Sea, where German ships have become a common sight. When war breaks out, Jacob's world is thrown into chaos. Over the course of four years, as boatmen risk everything to give Jewish refugees safe passage to land abroad, Jacob is confronted with the moral dilemma that will change his life--and his life's mission--forever"--Back cover.
