The Island House

The Island House

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.’ Library Journal
