Mari's Hope delivers the dramatic conclusion to the Odin's Promise Trilogy, following Odin's Promise, winner of the 2014 Midwest Book Award for Children's Fiction, and Bjorn's Gift (2016). In Mari's Hope, set in occupied Norway in the final years of World War II, young teen Mari has become a valued helper to the village doctor, while continuing to play a role in her family's efforts in the local resistance. As German war efforts begin to falter, the pressure increases to hold Norway firmly in their tight grip. But the freedom-loving Norwegians will do their best to thwart those plans. Praise for the series: "An exciting look at the occupation of Norway, through the eyes of a young, brave girl." - Angela Cerrito, author of The Safest Lie.
