In The Winged Watchman, renowned Catholic author Hilda van Stockum recounts the gripping tale of a Dutch family in World War II. Every element of occupied Holland is united in a story of courage and hope: a hidden Jewish child, a downed English pilot, a daring underground hero, and the small things of family life which surprisingly carry on in the midst of oppression.
The Winged Watchman is the fourth of five literature books studied in The Treasure Trove of Literature, Level 1. The literature guide focuses on the literary elements of symbolism and theme by exploring lessons about bravery, suffering, and God’s providential care.
