In tenth-century France, Elin, a woman of the pagan Forest People, and Owen, the young Christian bishop of Chantalon, found each other and wed, standing against the brutal onslaughts of Viking invaders.Gifted with the Forest People's powers of "sight," Elin sees a vision of danger to Chantalon, another invasion she fears will soon be visited upon the town. She must protect the child she carries within her. But loving Owen with fierce intensity, she will not run. She will stay and find a way to defy the enemy - a Norseman called Hakon.Owen knows only one way to defeat Hakon - the warrior's way, with sword and sinew. Now he sets out to gather a force to lead against the Vikings. His journey will take him to a crossroads where there is sorcery at work, betrayal waiting, and an act confronting him that can cost him Elin's love.
