Odin’s Promise: A Novel of Norway, a middle-grade historical novel by Wisconsin author Sandy Brehl, has been gathering some lovely praise and awards.
Recent accolades include:
We also were thrilled to see a review that just ran in the Norwegian-American Weekly. That newspaper is the eminent successor for a long legacy of Norwegian-American newspapers that once graced our country. More than 500 such newspapers once existed, including the Western Viking of Seattle, and Norway Times of New York. Norwegian American Weekly is now the last voice of that wonderful expression of ethnic-American journalists by and for Norwegians in America; the newspaper has been published continuously since 1889. We’re honored to have this wonderful article on Odin’s Promise included in their pages (and on their website).
Odin’s Promise deserves the praise. I hope young readers will get a chance to be inspired by this story of a brave young girl in occupied Norway in World War II, whose family gets involved in the local resistance movement.
