No one dreamed that the Nazis would ever bother Valcos, the sleeply little Norwegian fishing village on the edge of deep fjord. But Nazi officers quartered themselves in the Engeland home with the intention of securing Captain Engeland's influential help . . . and the happy, carefree life of the village changed abruptly.

Petra Engeland, only fourteen, had good reason then to transfer her resourcefulness in mischief to grimmer tasks involving life or death. With her impetuous older brother, Martin, she carried out daring and clever schemes under the very noses of the vigilant Nazis. Such loyal, lovable characters as Ole Haug, the resourceful fisherman, Herr Roland, Martin's schoolmaster, Hans Torgerson, and countless others helped them to work for their beloved country.

Against a background of mountains, caves, and fjords, the thrilling adventures and narrow escapes of Petra and Martin make breathless reading in this timely story.
