Elsbeth already knows what life has in store for her, and it certainly doesn't involve Taran.  He must've proposed to her a hundred times, but no matter how she feels about her oldest friend, she knows it can't work out between them. Elsbeth soon will be married off to a man who has the wealth to provide a decent home for her. The sooner the better, as far as her father is concerned.

While Elsbeth worries about her romantic future, a shadow hangs over the fishing village where she grew up. Vikings are raiding up and down the coast, and her home and everyone she cares for is under threat.

In dark times, Elsbeth has a desperate decision to make: will she risk everything and follow her heart, or seek the safety of an arranged marriage?

This is terribly sad! I just want to give Taran a big hug. Oh gosh. 😭❤️ I love his character. Where can I find myself a Taran?

Well done so far! I love how it's set up and I'm already feeling the tingle of impending adventure!

I really wish I could return to being a young, naive child with not a care in the world...

This preface created a weird sensation in me.  Whilst I was reading it, I couldn't help but envision my own future parallel to how you were outlineing Elsbeth's.  I can't wait to read on!! Please, do keep writing. :)
