The Belgian Twins

by Lucy Fitch Perkins

Description:  Little do twins Jan and Marie suspect that their neutral homeland of Belgium will be invaded, despite rumors of German activity in neighboring countries. Still less do they expect their own father to go off to war, and their beloved mother to be driven out of the village after she hides Jan and Marie from the attacking Germans. Before parting, however, mother promises Jan and Marie that she will find them again someday even if it means she must swim the seas to do so. Never doubting their mother, the twins bravely set out after her, encountering threatening foes and unexpected allies along the way.
