Here I am again, beginning yet another Robert Elmer series. And I am completely enthralled in it.
Let me tell you a bit of the storyline.
Peter & Henrik are two friends that enjoy using Morse Code
with each other, and also homing pigeon races--always with a special note attached to their birds. Peter's sister, Elise, also has her own homing pigeon, but lately she's not as adventurous as she used to be.
The problem is that this is Denmark, in the middle of World War II. Coded messages and birds carrying notes are mighty suspicious things--especially to those German soldiers who are always hanging around the corner. Henrik's family is Jewish, and so far the Jewish people have not been bothered in Denmark, but at anytime, everyone knows that plans could change overnight for the Jews...
This was an excellent, superb read.
It has left me to anticipating for book #2 so badly!
