My Father's Daughter: The Surprising Identity of Saskia Hommes
Katherine Goertz Thompson
On a bitterly cold day at thirty-five years of age, Saskia Hommes discovers a heart-stopping truth about her identity.
Saskia lived a privileged life. It was a life that looked perfect to the outside observer. In reality, it was filled with sadness, alcoholism, domestic dysfunction, and pain.
As a teenager, Saskia became intrigued by the events of the Second World War. Having her interest piqued, her attention turned to the activities of her own parents during the war. Her questions about their activity went largely unanswered and opened a dark hole of mystery to Saskia, who was desperate only to know the truth.
Nothing could have prepared her for the answers she found.
This is a story of intrigue, Nazi connections, mystery and complexity, and totally unexpected events, but ultimately it is a story of grace—God’s amazing grace in saving and keeping His child until she was ready to accept what He offered.
