What tragedy does it conceal and how does this mysterious object connect with Christian Larson, a Scandinavian boy shipwrecked in the year of the Titanic? a Viking past forms part of a quest for identity, set in a small New Zealand town in the early years of the twentieth century.
Theophilus Feldwebber, renouned antiquarian, makes the find of his life at an antique fair in New Zealand,an ancient Viking sword, which opens the door on a mystery involving an orphaned Danish migrant found wearing it, shipwrecked in the year of the Titanic.
