The Shadow Series: Set of 5 Books


Piet Prins

Age: 12-99

One of the most exciting series of a master story teller about the German occupation of The Netherlands during the emotional time of the Second World War (1940-1945).

Book 1: The Lonely Sentinel
A windmill standing guard over Dutch polders; the miller's family wrestling with death and treachery; innocent children playing adult games of secrecy and intrique; hapless refugees hounded by a merciless predator; the men of the Resistance, alert and dedicated . . . often to the death. 
Against them, the Hun and his Nazi-sympathizers.
In the balance: Religion, Freedom, and the House of Orange.

Book 2: The Hideout in the Swamp
D-Day, the Allied invasion of Europe, raises anew the hopes of millions in German-occupied territory.  But it also raises to unprecedented heights the atrocities of German terrorists and the treachery of the fawning servants.  To escape impending doom, thousands seek refuge.  With ingenuity born of desperation and hope, some hastily erect a shelter in the middle of a swampy peat bog, protected only by fog, water, secrecy, and prayer . . .

Book 3: The Grim Reaper
Desperate, sensing defeat, the Nazis resort to crippling reprisals against civilians, sustained surveillance, and counterespionage. Then comes the Battle of Arnhem. Panic-stricken, the Germans redouble their efforts to stamp out local resistance. A "double agent" discovers the hideout in the swamp. Tense, anxious moments follow. Will he succeed in betraying the refugees to the hated, dreaded Secret Police . . .?

Book 4: The Partisans

Book 5: Sabotage

"They are being read to shreds. We first read them ourselves.
Then my husband read them to our kids.

— Mary Pride

"These two books belong to each other and deal with situations in Holland during the emotional time of the Second World War, 1940-1945. The country was occupied by the German military forces. The nation’s freedom was destroyed by the foreign men in power, violence, persecutions and executions were the order the day, and the main target of the enemy was the destruction of the Christian way of life. In that time the resistance movement of underground fighters became very active. People from all ages and levels joined in and tried to defend the Dutch Christian heritage as much as possible. The above mentioned books show us how older and younger people were involved in that dangerous struggle. It often was a life and death battle. Every page of these books is full of tension. The stories give an accurate and a very vivid impression of that difficult and painful time. These books should also be in the hands of our young people. They are excellent instruments to understand the history of their own country [Holland] and to learn the practical value of their own [Christian faith] . . .
