Summary, etc.: A young boatbuilder's life is turned upside down when the only home he's ever known is raided by Vikings... A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband across the sea to a new land, but the customs of her husband's homeland are shockingly different, and she begins to realize that everyone around her is engaged in a constant, brutal battle for power...
