2014 MIDWEST BOOK AWARD GOLD MEDAL for CHILDREN'S FICTION

Listed among 2014 BEST BOOKS FOR GIRLS by A MIGHTY GIRL.

ODIN'S PROMISE is a historical novel for middle-grade readers, a story of the first year of German occupation of Norway in World War II as seen through the eyes of a young girl.

Eleven-year-old Mari grew up tucked safely under the wings of her parents, grandma, and her older siblings. After Hitler's troops invade Norway in Spring 1940, she is forced to grow beyond her "little girl" nickname to deal with harsh new realities. At her side for support and protection is Odin, her faithful elkhound.

As the year progresses, Mari, her family, and her neighbors are drawn into the Norwegian underground resistance movement.

"Readers will cheer for Mari as she discovers her inner strength - and the courage to help celebrate Norway's spirit of resistance." -- Kathleen Ernst, author of American Girl's Caroline Abbott series and Chloe Ellefson Mystery series.

"Beautifully written, emotionally taut novel of one girl's coming of age during war time." -- Gayle Rosengren
