Pros: What an excellent resource to introduce young people to life in Denmark during World War II. This story takes the reader into German occupied Denmark and introduces him to brave men, women and children: Jew and gentile alike. It is a story of faith and a story of history. It is a story of love and a story of sacrifice; a story of family and a story of friends. It is a story that ties people together with their faith in God, who alone can save them. After reading the first book in the series our family is excited about starting the next book in the series.
