Quislings—Nazi collaborators! Could it really be true that several members of Solveig’s family were quislings—and that her own brother, Roald, had served as a Nazi spy? At the close of WWII, 15-year-old Solveig Strand returns to her beloved Norwegian village after a five-year stay in Scotland and she is greeted, not with open arms, but with harsh words and cold looks.
Now it is up to Solveig to restore her brother’s good name and her family’s honor—picking apart the truth about the past, from the falsehoods and rumors, like a tangled skein of yarn. If she succeeds, her scattered family can finally return—with their heads held high as the patriots she knows in her heart they are.
