The life she covets is imprinted onto her psyche. The world she crafts holds mysteries beyond understanding.
Miami, 1992. Val Masterson dreams of having a family. So after her husband refuses to give her children, she feels utterly lost when their home is destroyed in a devastating hurricane. But when a bump on the head triggers visions of a powerful Icelandic heroine from long ago, she frantically writes down her thrilling exploits.
12th century Iceland. Born of Val’s pen, Vigdis has the iron jaw her modern creator never had. Between two brothers vying for her favor and a sorcerer’s magic advances, only the promise of offspring at the end of her tale tempts her away from adventure. And though she graciously accepts her victorious suitor’s hand after an epic duel, she’s heartbroken when the entire community falls into chaos with a violent volcanic eruption.
As Val’s neglect of reality drives her spouse away, she struggles to disconnect from her fantastical fiction. And the more Vigdis is imbued with the survival skills of her author, the closer her ending comes to a shocking realization.
With two realities colliding in her mind, can Val claw her way out of despair?
