Bowen Nance Swersey has written a superb first novel, entitled "Flight of the Wren," and is seeking representation and publishing.
Weaving history, magic, love, and warfare, "Flight of the Wren" tells the story of the end of the Viking Age through the eyes of a Shaman's Apprentice from Lapland. As ponderous and ambitious as Olav Haraldsson, soon to become Saint Olav of Norway, the book is propelled by magical forces, and destined to be remembered. Like the Witch of Vestfold, it is mischievous, brooding, and crafty beneath a dry sense of humor. Like Prince Cnut of Denmark, it has the courage to take on complex religious and political issues and emerge victorious, and finally, like the true protagonist Hilja of Lapland, this novel has a big heart, guided by keen intuition and a desire to heal the rifts between people and cultures.
"Flight of the Wren" is a two part story comprised of the first two books in a longer series. Totaling over 300,000 words, it may be presented as two shorter novels or a single epic. It stands within the genres of historical, women's and adventure fiction.
