Visiting the small town of Grave, in Holland, led me to imagine the story of three cousins

This year, the 100-year anniversary of the First World War, people around the world remember their ancestors and those communities affected by the conflict.

Patrick Henderson has always had a passion for both world wars and the Hitler Youth Organization, so writing about a family experiencing all three came naturally. The Dark Tunnel is a story of family, young love, betrayal, and the tragedy of war.

“The story revolves around three cousins – an English boy, a German boy, and a Dutch girl – and their upbringing between the wars,” Henderson said.

Born in the late 1920s, Henderson was too young to have fought in either war, but personal experiences such as traveling to sites with special meaning played a critical role in the creation of The Dark Tunnel.

“Visiting the small town of Grave, in Holland, led me to imagine the story of three cousins,” Henderson said.

The rest, like the grave incidents chronicled in the book, is history.
