A young Viking girl is swept by a storm on to a desolate English
beach. Cruelly orphaned there, Ylva becomes set on revenge, tracking
a killer through dangerous hinterland. She wants only the favour
of the Norse gods and the comfort of her stories. But when a
stranger decides to protect Ylva - seeming to understand her where
others cannot - Ylva must decide if her own legend will end in
vengeance or forgiveness.
