 Thoughts:
Land of Hidden Fires by Kirk Kjeldsen is simply a terrific book, telling a terrific story. Mr. Kjeldsen paints with word the characters and the scenery – it’s almost poetic.

 This is a short book, the narrative is tight and engrossing told in vivid detail. I loved how the author described the landscapes, the details were amazing with just enough words to create an image in my mind’s eye.

 The big twist in the book comes from the characters’ actions, not a major plot twist as in many novels. The narrative moves along in a very fluid, natural manner. I didn’t feel that anything was rushed, even though the book is not very long.

 I’ve read many World War II books, but I can count on a single hand the ones which talk about the Nordic countries. I’m very glad I read this one and am looking forward to read more.

 Synopsis:
Kari, a 15 year old Norwegian girl living under Nazi occupation finds a downed American pilot. It is March, 1943 and the war’s end doesn’t seem to be in sight. Kari bravely offers to escort the pilot over the frozen landscape to Switzerland.

 Kari and Lance are pursued by a disgruntled German officer, Kari’s father and a Norwegian Nazi sympathizer.
