Format: Kindle Edition
This novel is a mysterious and wild journey that travels from an 11th century Viking battlefield to an immigrant life in the towering forests of 1950 Vancouver Island and Norwegian resistance fighters battling the Nazis and then on to a climactic First Nations potlatch ceremony. Events separated by centuries. locations separated by oceans and continents are skillfully brought together in this lyrical tale of one man's spiritual quest. The hero is a Norwegian who has come to Canada after the total breakdown of his life. He has lost everything, money, friends, the love of his wife and son, but most of all a connection to his own culture and past. Deep within himself he senses the echoes of his Viking ancestors, their connection to Norse gods and their spirit world, nearly destroyed by centuries of Christian life. But how to reconnect to it in this new, yet ancient land, where his Canadian family accepts but cannot understand his distress? He finds it in the first nations people he encounters, whose traditional culture and religious beliefs still thrive secretly amongst the Christian newcomers.

This is a very beautifully written, spiritual book, of a quest many take within their own hearts as they stumble about seeking to connect with a lost past. Occasionally the hero's inner conflict almost overwhelms the story, his search touching upon dark, confusing feelings that even he does not understand. But it is also full of the strange world of immigrant life, of trips to big city bars and stories of Norwegian partisans fighting a heroic guerilla war, of Viking slaughter and First Nations ceremony. It is an ambitious work, and an ambitious read. I think the journey is worth it.
