Finn's FateeBook - 2014
Finn's Fate' tells the story of three brothers in tenth century Scandinavia. Their home is north of the Arctic Circle in an isolated region populated by the Sami, the Laplanders. The living is harsh and the climate unforgiving. After a disastrous fire at their homestead, they decide to ignore their family's wishes and abandon their home. The young men embark on a journey to find a better life. They undertake a lengthy odyssey through unfriendly territory and dangerous seas. Their quest eventually leads them to join the crew of the Viking vessel "Ulf", the wolf. Through storms and battles, they support each other and become increasingly wealthy as they raid the unprotected villages and ports on the British coast. Their success leads them to a dangerous level of confidence and they embark on one raid too many. The brothers find themselves drawn in to series of events from which not all of them can escape. The book mirrors actual historical events and attempts to solve a mystery in the Dorset countryside.
