Het duister dat ons scheidt

Renate Dorrestein in Concert



Renate Dorrestein about her concert: “I felt like Sting. It was great to sit on stage with all these swinging musicians around me. Sometimes I could hardly concentrate on reading my texts, I wanted to hear the music so bad. It was incredibly inspiring. Afterwards I immediately told Corrie: ‘I want to go on tour with you!’”

Corrie van Binsbergen about Renate Dorrestein: “Whenever I start reading a book by Renate Dorrestein, I brush pressing matters to one side and forgo sleep; in any case I just have to finish that book first.”

‘Het duister dat ons scheidt’ (The Darkness that Divides Us) by Renate Dorrestein is as exciting as a Hitchcock movie. A very attractive mixture of humor and suspense. The music is as the soundtrack for a movie for the ears. The suspense is delivered by a booming musical apotheosis.
