“Spending the summer at their uncle’s farm off the west coast of Denmark promises Peter and Elise Andersen freedom from the constant German patrols and bomb sirens that plague their home town. But on their first night at the sheep farm, a British bomber is seen lighting up the night sky- its engines in flames!
“The plane crashes into the icy waters of the North Sea, but by the time they arrive, the pilot has struggled to shore and hidden himself in the thick woods. Knowing they must find him before the German soldiers do, Peter, Elise, and their cousins begin a feverish search for the endangered British pilot.
“The guard dogs are barking and the German trucks are rumbling in the distance- will Peter and Elise be able to rescue the pilot in time?” -from the back of the book

I love this series! My favorite part was when SPOILER!! Peter gets saved!!! SPOILER END!! The only part that I didn’t like was that they mentioned “the bishop” and that the pastor was wearing a clerical collar. That almost makes it sound like they are Lutherans, but I’m not sure. I loved the story, though! I am starting to like “suspenseful” books more. 🙂
