Banished. Facing hostile strangers. Can she trust him with her heart?
Eira has some unusual talents. Unfortunately, they land her in so much trouble that even her father, a mighty warrior, cannot save her. She finds herself alone, banished to a village that doesn’t want her and facing hostile strangers with nowhere to go.
Things go from bad to worse and Eira is certain that her end has come. But when Halvar, the village chieftain, comes to her rescue, she’s safe. Or so she thinks.
When fresh trouble finds her, she is forced to flee into the forest for her own safety. Will Halvar be able to find her in time to save her life? Can she trust him with her heart?
This clean and sweet novella is set in the days of King Haakon of Norway, a time when the Vikings left their homelands to raid and plunder; when Christianity was making tentative approaches and kings fought for the right to rule. It contains no violence or sex scenes.
