Summary
As the bombs rain down in the Battle of Britain, a young girl is evacuated to the countryside where she struggles to make sense of her new wartime life. Then she is given a copy of Asgard and the Gods - a book of ancient Norse myths - and her inner and outer worlds are transformed. War, natural disaster, reckless gods and the destruction of life on this planet are encountered. How could this child know that fifty years on many of the birds and flowers she took for granted on her walks to school would become extinct?
