Abigail van der Velde was born and raised in North Carolina, lived in New York City, and then married a Dutchman and moved to the Netherlands, where she lived for eight years. After experience in both journalism and editing, she is now pleased to present her first book.
"There were moments that I had the impression that I was reading a
story of my parents' family, how I was raised. I enjoyed reading
this very much."--Hein Schaaij great-nephew of Johanna Kuyper. He
is 92 years old, had a long career in international finance, headed
up the War on Drugs in Europe, and was active in the Dutch
resistance during WWII. He is the father of 12 (I think) and the
grandfather and great-grant-father of lots more.
What could modern day teenagers possibly have in common with the Kuyper family? The Byrd women found that maybe one of the biggest impacts from Abigail van der Velde's biographical novel is the way it made us consider how we glorify and honor the Lord by living faithfully to the unique personalities and gifts with which he has so graciously designed for each of us to contribute to his service. In that way, we sharpen one another and display a fuller picture of Christ.--Aimee Byrd, Author of Housewife Theologian; and her daughters Solanna and Zaidee
