A horrible storm off the cold coasts of
fifteenth-century Iceland sends the Trinity
crashing to shore, with nearly no survivors. For
Ragna, the teenage daughter of a respected
family who is betrothed to the dashing and
wealthy Thorkell, the shipwreck presents a
life-changing risk she cannot resist: a handsome
sailor named Michael, who is seduced by her
gentle singing during his stay in the hospital,
then impregnates her and promptly disappears.
Thorkell cannot marry her and take in another
man's son, and Ragna is left barren from a
traumatic childbirth and stigmatized as a fallen
woman. A decade later, Ragna becomes a
housekeeper to the new English bishop in North
Iceland, where passionate and ambitious Thorkell
is a priest and steward. They embark on a
fervent but doomed love affair as priests cannot
marry and Ragna will not be a concubine. As
sweeping as it is intimate, On the Cold Coasts
is a powerful, enduring story of love and
personal sacrifice.
