Note Originally published in the Netherlands as De Verdronkene in 2005.
Translated from the Dutch.
Summary 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.
