On a hot summer's day in June 1969 everyone in the village gathered to welcome Queen Juliana. It would have been an unforgettable day of celebration if only the baker hadn't been running late with his deliveries and knocked down little Hanne with his brand-new VW van.

June traces in spellbinding, tender detail how the ripples from one tragic incident spread through a community, a family and down the generations.
