While visiting their cousins' farm on the west coast of Denmark in the summer of 1944, eleven-year-old twins Peter and Elise learn the power of prayer as they work to rescue a downed British pilot.
"So is this what you thought a sheep farm would look like?" Elise asked her eleven-year-old twin brother, Peter, as they stepped out of the little bus. She twirled around with her arms out, taking in the farm country where they would spend the rest of their summer vacation. This was the west coast of Denmark, the part of the country their mother had grown up in.
Publisher Book Description:
The British pilot was about to become a prisoner of war-
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?
