A View of the Ocean by Jan de Hartog

One book per week, Week 14: A View of the Ocean. Jan De Hartog was a Dutch best-selling novelist, playwright, war correspondent, and during World War II, a secret courier for the British Royal navy. Hartog moved to America in the early 1960s and is the author of Fourposter which was produced around the world.  A View of the Ocean goes into the discoveries he makes about his parents, his time during World War II and how he deals with his mothers passing. Really great story.
