Publisher's Summary

The rumblings of war in distant countries mattered little to Danny McClain. Growing up in Chicago, his world revolved around afterschool jobs, a rescued beagle, his pen pal in Holland, and the Cubs' chance to go to the World Series. Then, in December of 1941, news of the attack on Pearl Harbor hit much too close to home. In a few years, Danny found himself in the copilot seat of a B-17, stationed with the 390th Bomb Group in Framlingham, England.
Anya Versteeg had been just a teenager when Hitler's troops invaded her homeland of Holland in May of 1940. Forced to grow up much too fast, the feisty preacher's daughter eagerly immersed herself in the Dutch Resistance. Certain that God had turned his back on Holland, she did whatever she had to do to save her country before it was too late.
By 1945 the people of occupied Holland were starving. Thousands were dying every day. Then, just days before the war ended, help came to the Netherlands like manna from heaven.
Operation Chowhound held special meaning for Lieutenant Danny McClain. Somewhere below, in the battered land of tulips and windmills, was the girl who needed rescuing, and he would move heaven and earth to find her.

Fabulous book

This will always remain in my top ten books. The storyline & characters were superb. I have a long commute to work and bought the audio book - it was difficult to get out of the jeep once I reached the office and the same on the reverse trip. Only wish there was a book #2.

Wonderful Wonderful Story

What made the experience of listening to Of Windmills and War the most enjoyable?

The story was so beautifully told and realistic to the era that I was left wondering, "How do people write like this?"


Any additional comments?

The author is very diverse in her writing. I have enjoyed every book she has written. This one was more in-depth and serious but her approach was realistic, yet sensitive.
