Editorial Reviews

Review

This historically based, yet fictional account of the atrocities suffered during WWII in Holland is exceptionally riveting. Both by being heartwarming and heartbreaking, it is a read that you won't forget.

The characters are well drawn and the historical details convincing, not surprising since the author tells us in a foreword that her mother was Dutch and was in Holland during these troubling times.

What an excellent book! So good I couldn't put it down. I read it in a day. I didn't know anything about the Dutch hidden villages, so not only was the story page-turning but I learnt something new at the same time.

What I have noticed with many Holocaust books / memoirs is the relentless recalling of facts and dates that bombard readers with unbearable horror. The Hidden Village, however, while just as true to the horrors of the Holocaust, allows the readers to not just be reminded of what has happened but to also be able to immerse themselves into a world of well written fiction.

I was amazed by how many of the Dutch fought the Nazis in their own way. They were willing to make sacrifices for other people at the expense of their own daily needs. Very inspiring!

I loved reading this intriguing historical story that took place in the Netherlands during World War 2. Imagine an actual hidden village!! The characters were well developed and the courage and depth of love they demonstrated kept my imagination soaring from beginning to end!

Storytelling is of a superb quality, and she has the ability to bring vividly to life these very hard and brutal times in a clear fashion, as well as the atmosphere in which the Jews had to live in WWII, and all that in a gripping and heart-breaking way within this wonderful tale.

I had heard that the Dutch population had made significant efforts to protect their Jewish neighbors but this is the first novel I have read to explore this history. Well written and interesting read.

About the Author

Imogen Matthews lives in Oxford, England and is the author of two romantic fiction e-novels. The Hidden Village is her first historical fiction novel. Born in Rijswijk, Holland, to a Dutch mother and English father, the family moved to England when Imogen was very young. She has always enjoyed holidays in Holland and since 1990, has gone regularly with her husband and two children to Nunspeet on the edge of the Veluwe woods. It was here that she discovered the story of the hidden village, and together with her mother’s vivid stories of life in WW2 Holland, she was inspired to write her next novel. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
