A haunting, compelling historical novel, The Sea Road is a daring
re-telling of the 11th-century Viking exploration of the North
Atlantic from the viewpoint of one extraordinary woman. Gudrid
lives at the remote edge of the known world, in a starkly beautiful
landscape where the sea is the only connection to the shores
beyond. It is a world where the old Norse gods are still invoked,
even as Christianity gains favour, where the spirits of the dead
roam the vast northern ice-fields, tormenting the living, and
Viking explorers plunder foreign shores. Taking the accidental
discovery of North America as its focal point, Gudrid's narrative
describes a multi-layered voyage into the unknown, all recounted
with astonishing immediacy and rich atmospheric detail.
