Here is a novel with a totally fresh setting and a very original approach. It is often forgotten that Dublin, in the early Middle Ages, was a Norse town. And those were stirring times. Be a strange accident a modern man find himself thrown back into the midst of the eleventh-century town. Half-accepted, half-suspected, he lives for four months in the midst of fierce rushing life of the people. sharing their loves and hates, their hopes and fears.

No such picture of ancient Norse life has ever been given outside of the great novels of Sigrid Undset. Here is nothing of the mere saga, nothing of the merely historical, but a life lived with an intensity and vividness that make the life of today pale by comparison. A story of adventure undoubtedly, sind the tale races from cover to cover but the dominating adventures are in it are the dark adventures of a man's soul, the shock of opposing creeds, the profound despair of one who has found no solutions to the eternal question. The wash and moan of the sea are the enveloping music of the book and behind it are the was and moan of the greater sea that envelops all men's lives.
