Facing the loss of his job, Dr. Callum Chamberlain, Lecturer in Icelandic Language and Literature at one of England’s premier universities, meets and falls for fellow scholar Antonia and agrees to her scheme to search for a lost Icelandic saga. As his journey takes him to Reykjavík and beyond into the uninhabited Icelandic hinterland will he achieve his quest for history or do others have a vested interest in his success?
