500    Originally published in the Netherlands as De Verdronkene 
       in 2005. 
500    Translated from the Dutch. 
520    On the night of January 31, 1953, a mountain of water, 
       literally piled up out of the sea by a freak winter 
       hurricane, swept down on the Netherlands, demolishing the 
       dikes protecing the country and wiping a quarter of its 
       landmass from the map. It was the worst natural disaster 
       to strike the Netherlands in three hundred years. The 
       author interweaves the stories of two sister, deftly 
       alternating between the cataclysm and the long years of 
       its grief-strewn aftermath.
