Set in Norway during the 1940 German occupation, this heartrending, heartpounding tale follows eleven-year-old Mari and her dog, Odin, as they face the dangers of the Nazis and of growing up. Teeming with emotion, the quiet narrative uses lyrical language and short chapters to unfurl the story of Mari’s coming-of-age. Odin’s Promise is both an electrifying page-turner and a touching portrait of a unique country and era. Ages ten to thirteen.
