No one dreamed the Nazis would ever bother Valcos, a sleepy little Norwegian fishing village on the edge of the deep fjord. Even so, the happy, carefree life in Valcos changed abruptly the day Nazis entered town, when enemy officers took up residence in the Engeland home with intentions of securing Captain Engeland's influential help.

Petra Engeland, only fourteen, had good reason to channel her resourcefulness into a life or death struggle with the invaders. With help from her impulsive older brother, Martin, and countless other courageous Norwegians, she carried out daringly clever schemes under the very noses of the enemy.

Against a backdrop of mountains, caves and fjords, Petra and Martin's adventures are even more compelling knowing their story was written in 1944, before the end of World War II.
