Summary:

"It is 997 CE, the end of the Dark Ages. England is facing attacks from the Welsh in the west and the Vikings in the east. In these turbulent times, three characters find their lives intertwined. A young boatbuilder and his family are forced to move after a Viking raid, starting their lives anew in a small hamlet. A Norman noblewoman marries for love, following her husband to a new land -- but finds shockingly different customs and constant battles for power. A monk dreams of transforming his humble abbey into a center of learning. And each, in turn, comes into dangerous conflict with a clever, ruthless bishop who will do anything to increase his wealth and power. -- from back cover.
