Just wanted to give a heads-up, in case you’re not subscribed to my email or you don’t follow me on Facebook, that my first Viking historical, God’s Daughter, is FREE for e-reader for the month of October, to celebrate Leif Erikson Day (he’s in the book!). Here’s what Historical Novel Society Reviews said about this book:
“The 10th-century world of the Vikings is conveyed in wonderfully vivid detail in Heather Day Gilbert’s absorbing and wholly satisfying fiction debut. Gudrid Thorbjarnardottir, trained to be a pagan Viking seeress, decides instead to embrace Christianity (the practical logistics of such thinking, usually glided over by novelists of this period, are here given in very convincing detail – the reader genuinely understands Gudrid’s motivations), and her faith is tested when she decides to accompany her husband Finn on a perilous voyage to the New World, to the mysterious harbor of “Vineland” that is still a mystery to archaeologists.
The life of Vikings in North America is energetically described, and the entire cast of characters feel fresh and vivid, including Leif Ericson and Gudrid’s father-in-law Eric the Red. God’s Daughter is the first in a projected series about Vikings in North America, and it is a remarkably assured tale, well-recommended.”
Please pick it up today if you’re interested in the real Viking men and women who sailed to North America! Links below:
