Gut wrenching, personal upheaval is when forced, by murder and mayhem, to seek asylum.

Falsely convicted of murder, Kauko is outlawed and leaves his pregnant wife and family. He’s bound for one last raid in Scotland. Returning to her farm in the fjord, his wife faces a difficult winter. Her father urges her to divorce, and, with him, immigrate to Eire. Overwhelming circumstances, force her to leave the home she loves and settle in a strange land. This tale takes place in ninth century Viking Scandinavia. Hoards of men that fought and pillaged, were giving up their hostile ways, to winter in warmer climates. Raiders became traders. These immigrants struggle to merge two cultures.

A beatifully, well written book. It gives you a glimpse into the lives of our ancestors and how they adapted and endured. The Politics of Plunder is a story that grips you and just won't let you put the book down until you've reached the end.

Lyn has done it again! Amazing storyline; such believable characters! By the end of the book; I had a clear picture in my mind of Redbeard and Matti and Lyyli.Such courageous people who certainly lived life to the fullest. Let's hope for another book soon!
