Summary
"The Comfort Bird follows the experiences of three generations of two families of farm laborers from a small town in the Northern Netherlands. One family moves across the ocean and passes through Ellis Island in 1911 to seek their fortune on the American Prairies. The second family is too much rooted in the heavy soil of the old country to emigrate. In a strange twist of fate after D-Day World War II brings the families together again, on opposing sides of the conflict. The Comfort Bird is based in fact and author Hylke Speerstra traveled extensively in the USA, Germany and the Netherlands to research original sources and interview descendants."--Publisher's website
