Testamint fan de siel latest book Hylke Speerstra

With Testamint fan de siel, the Frisian writer Hylke Speerstra (1936) has added another beautiful book to his oeuvre. He also published the bestsellers De Oerpolder, It wrede paradys and Op Klompen door de Dessa. In this book, Hylke Speerstra tells about the experiences of two boys who, separately from each other, have had terrible childhoods. One in Friesland the other in Canada. They make careers and find love. As old men they meet again and discover that they have more in common than they thought. A story in which Speerstra brings history to life, as he has so often done in his earlier books. A formidable opus, which he says is Speerstra's last book. Afterwards, the book will be for sale, which Speerstra will then sign.
