About the Book

Anneke and Romke, from two very different provinces, fall deeply in love when Anneke slips in the marketplace, and Romke comes to her rescue. After their wedding a year later, they sail to his family’s home to live. Anneke is jubilant and anticipates a wonderful life with Romke. Though she’s heard of a disturbing custom practiced by his village, she shoves it aside, believing it would never involve her. But to her horror, what she hoped would never happen, has fallen on her. What awaits Anneke. . . and Romke, her devoted husband?

The colorful setting of the early twentieth-century Netherlands and the nature of the dilemmas Anneke must face make her book distinctive. Targeted toward adult women, this story opens up a new world: time, place, culture, and customs. This book is filled with relational drama, romance and suspense.

Her purpose for writing this novel is to show the reader that no matter how dark our life becomes, the Lord is there for all who seek Him.

About the Author

Intrigued by tales of a Dutch ancestor, and inspired by Dutch objects in her childhood home, Guin Calnon’s longing to visit the Netherlands increased. Her lifelong dream came true when she and her husband flew to Holland. Learning the village life and customs, she began writing her first novel, THOUGH THE WATERS BE TROUBLED. Even her mother’s miniature wooden shoes found their way into her story.

Her DVD presentation, “Dropping in on Holland,” features regional costumes, castles, villages, gardens, and windmills. In costume, she shares Dutch anecdotes. An exhibition adds a tangible dimension. She’s on Facebook and on her blog, she writes of her informative and humorous experiences in Holland.

Three of her children’s stories: Tulips of Love, No Wooden Shoes, and A Christmas For Others are published.

She was featured in the Greenville (SC) News March 18, 1992, and October 8, 1996, and listed in Who’s Who in U.S. Writers, Editors & Poets (December Press, Highland Park, IL., 1986-1987, 73)

She’s lived in Michigan, Wisconsin, and now resides in South Carolina with her husband, where they reared their five children.
