Molly and the Sword
Molly and the Sword

Ages: 7 -12

What a great opportunity for Molly.

She is about to play her violin in the most famous concert hall in all the world. But she’s extremely nervous – so nervous that she’s afraid to go on stage.

Years earlier, when she was very young, she had shown great courage. At a dangerous time, she had gone in search of water for her family. Back then, an officer in an enemy army had saved her from harm.

Now, at the concert hall, the officer suddenly reappears. Who is he? Can he help Molly regain her courage? And what important lessons do he and Molly teach each other?
