Sigmund Brouwer, author of Thief of Glory

For 10-year-old Jeremiah Prins, the life of privilege as the son of a school headmaster in the Dutch East Indies comes crashing to a halt in 1942 after the Japanese Imperialist invasion of the Southeast Pacific. Jeremiah takes on the responsibility of caring for his younger siblings when his father and older stepbrothers are separated from the rest of the family, and he is surprised by what life in the camp reveals about a woman he barely knows --- his frail, troubled mother.

Renovating an historic Memphis house together, three cousins discover that their spectacular failures in love, career and family provide the foundation for their future happiness.
