In Those Other Lands
by Caroline VanTongeren Mertens

->>>DOWNLOAD BOOK In Those Other Lands

<span>The Dekkers are a Dutch family transplanted from the Netherlands into the maturing culture of the Dutch East Indies, and the country transforms them - as they help influence the country. Pieter Dekker is a man of courage and influence in his career of Chief Commissioner of Police for Batavia (later, Jakarta), the headquarters of all 17,000 islands in the verdant Dutch-ruled nation.&#xA0;

His eldest daughter, Diny Dekker, a tenacious, optimistic girl, matures during a revolutionary time. Her coming-of-age blossoms during the Second World War while in the Netherlands. The War shatters the Dekker family, separating them,but their hearts and spirits remain united.&#xA0;

Diny faces the death of loved ones, and places her trust in God. Her story weaves the narrative of a life no longer at peace, and she must decide whether or not to return to the Indies. Can she find the paradise she once experienced?&#xA0;

As much as the social atmosphere of the Dutch East Indies swirls and changes in Diny&apos;s lifetime, so too do her own personal attitudes about life and love. As she traverses three continents, Diny&apos;s faith, forgiveness, and desire for redemption will have the reader cheering for her each step of the way. This is the story of challenges and triumphs of a family traversing the 1930s and beyond, a tale of survival, hope, and redemption.&#xA0;
Caroline VanTongeren Mertens&apos; debut work is a new addition to the great historical memoir tradition along the lines of authors such as Corrie ten Boom,Anne Frank, Louis Zamperini, Amy Tan, and Frank McCourt.


&quot;...a rich, lovely illustration of a journey of faith...&quot;
&quot;I could close my eyes and picture the images perfectly as though I had seen photographs - I was lost in the pages of this eloquently described world that Mertens has made come alive through her extraordinary talent! And I utterly fell in love with Diny, immediately connecting with her sweetness and tenacity,her spunk and strength.&quot;

&quot;A work of grace and beauty,&#xA0;In Those Other Lands&#xA0;will encourage, challenge, and touch your heart deeply. Mertens communicates what it looks like to wrestle with faith in hard times as well as mundane times through Diny&apos;s story, showing us the ordinariness of that struggle as well as the quiet glory of God&apos;s pursuit of us.&quot;

&quot;Diny&apos;s faith is incredible - you won&apos;t be the same after encountering this woman and her grace-filled story.&quot;</span>
<span>&quot;This book is not only a memoir spanning several lifetimes, but an excellent testimonial for faith in God and in perseverance against overwhelming odds in war, in various environments and in day to day life.&quot; Harvey Stanbrough, professional novelist, short story writer, and poet</span>
