When Freya Dane inherits the small Scottish island called Findnar, the young archaeologist finds a treasure house of notes and artifacts from the island's Viking and Christian past.
But that is just the beginning of a story that began in 800 AD.
It is then that Signy, a young Pictish girl, survives a murderous Viking raid.
Taken in by the Christian missionaries of Findnar, she learns their language and their ways - even the mysteries of writing.
But before she can take her vows as a nun, she falls in love with the battle's other survivor- a Viking boy called Magni.
Forced to choose between her faith and the man she loves, Signy's fate will be tragic ...As Freya uncovers Signy's story and the secrets hidden beneath her new home, she finally realizes that Findnar is as dangerous in the twenty-first century as it was twelve hundred years ago. 'Bursting at the seams with romance, intrigue, visions from the past, Viking marauders, battles, and lost treasure ...Whether a mystery, a romance, a thriller, or historical fiction, this is the perfect summer read.'
