Book Club - The Clean Daughter

Thursday, March 9 | 12:00 noon

Scholte Garden Room


The Clean Daughter tells the true story of Jill Kandel, a North Dakota native who marries a Dutch man and has problems adjusting to the Dutch lifestyle, especially her overbearing father-in-law. This becomes more troubling when her father-in-law decides to avail himself of the Netherlands' euthanasia laws. (In case you're wondering about the title, the word for "daughter-in-law" in Dutch is "schoondochter" or "clean daughter.")


We have several copies at Pella Historical. Because the Museums are closed for the winter, please call 641-628-1541 to set up a time to pick up the book, or email
