Valcos is a peaceful little Norwegian fishing village—that is, until the Nazis quarter themselves in the local families’ homes. The Nazis hope to secure Captain Engeland’s help and the village’s valuable ships, so something must be done to stop them. Fourteen-year-old Petra Engeland, her brother, and others in the village unite to oppose the enemy through daring rescues, ingenious plans, and life-or-death missions. Filled with suspenseful action and beautiful description, On the Edge of the Fjord tenderly illustrates devotion to family and country, comradery between young and old, and courage in the face of adversity.
