A Time to Choose

(1995)
A novel by

 
Based on a true story, this award-winning book tells the tale of a sixteen-year-old boy whose father becomes a Nazi collaborator.

The year is 1944. Sixteen-year-old Johannes van der Meer's homeland has been occupied by the Nazis for four long years. While enduring food shortages and nightly air raids, the people of the Netherlands wait patiently for the liberation they know will come. But for Johannes the struggle to endure is full of bitterness. The fact that his father is a Nazi collaborator has made outcasts of the van der Meer family. When the girl he loves joins the Dutch Resistance, Johannes sees a chance to redeem the family name. If only he can persuade the members of the resistance that he can be trusted, no mission is too dangerous. Despite his love for his father, Johannes will do anything to prove his loyalty to his friends and his country. Based on historical fact, A Time to Choose is a novel about sacrifice and courage, love and betrayal, and about the difficult choices forced by difficult times
