Karen Comerabout this book: A Druid village celebrates May Day and a betrothal, when Vikings attack. All the young women are taken, but the high priest's daughter Rhiann refuses to accept that she'll never see her village again.
Gunnarr, the Viking leader's son, has a secret that Rhiann soon discovers, and the two become close friends. From Scotland to the Faroes, Iceland to Greenland and on to a place we now know as Newfoundland, only through Gunnarr's kindness do many survive the arduous journey.
At their destination, they build a settlement, but the king forces Rhiann and Gunnarr to marry. Poisoned wine is served during the wedding celebration and Rhiann is the obvious person to blame, so the two escape and retrace their journey home, Rhiann guided by her mother's spirit, Gunnarr by his faith.
Rhiann realizes that the boy she left behind, is simply someone she loved as a friend. Gunnarr is the man she longs for but he must return to Denmark, she to South Wales.
