In the 15th century, young Irish monk (and hunk) Brendan has been sent by the Catholic church to a lonely missionary outpost in Greenland, where he and his colleagues are expected to turn the native people onto Christ and away from their wicked ways. But things donâ€™t turn out so well when the monks can’t really make a go of igloo living and start dropping like frozen flies. Brendan is the last one left alive, and heâ€™s slipping fast. Enter Navarana, a Inuit shaman babe who sweeps in and saves Brendanâ€™s life, even though that means one more mouth to feed in her already starving village. A village elder, wiser that both of them because he can see that opposites attract even when it comes to shamans and priests, sends them off on a mission together to find food, even though they act like they canâ€™t stand each other. Chances are good that theyâ€™re gonna hook up, but what about the hungry villagers they left behind? Will they be able to stop quarrelling/kissing long enough to complete their mission? Iâ€™m making this book sound sillier than it is–Mette Newth is actually one of my favorite authors because she writes so beautifully and lyrically without the Harlequin cheese factor. Plus, itâ€™s a great examination of religious beliefs and why we believe what we do. Your teacher will love it! (and so will you).
