Thief of Glory by Sigmund Brouwer is about a boy, who at the age of 10, was taken into the Japanese concentration camp with his mother and siblings. It follows him through all the hardships he and his family endured, as well as the stresses he had as he struggles to protect his family as his father instructed him to do before he and his older sons were separated from the rest of the family by the Japanese. It also follows him as he falls in love with one of his close friends while in the camp.
Brouwer tells this story with such detail that you feel like you are right there in the story with the characters. It really gives you a sense of what these people went through and how they fought to survive. It was hard for me to put down, because I would get so involved in the story I would have to keep reading chapter after chapter to find out what happened next. Very well written and I highly recommend this book for others to read!
