Review: The Boat Runner

The Boat Runner The Boat Runner by Devin Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a moving WWII novel about Jacob, a young Dutch man, who struggles with losing the members of his family and his friends to a horrible war. The story starts in 1939, with two brothers from Holland who are sent to a Hitler Youth Camp in Germany and leads to one to die and the other to join the German army out of anger.

This is also a story of redemption as Jacob's uncle reaches out to him and brings him back on the righteous path. Jacob eventually finds his purpose and brings good to this dreadful wartime. The page turning story is well structured and the writing is beautiful. Another great book for readers who enjoys historical novels.
