TindrBook - 2016
Tindr is handsome, kind, and the best hunter on 9th century Gotland. He possesses a deep understanding and empathy with animals, which powers his reverence towards the game he takes to survive. But he is also deaf, which closes him off from the society that surrounds him - and seemingly, from finding love.Devoted parents and friends can't protect young Tindr from the bully who taunts him, from girls who tease him, or from the threat of surrender to the allure of the Lady of the Forest, who might destroy him.Tindr opens the silent world of this remarkable young man. We learn of the courtship and marriage of his parents Rannveig and Dagr, and the story of his cousin and protector Ragnfast.Tindr's life alters dramatically at the arrival of two strangers on the island - the Welsh-Saxon Ceridwen, and the Danish warrior Sidroc. He finds a new and fulfilling life with them at Tyrsborg. But will he ever find a woman to love him?Tindr tells the story of this strange and haunting young hunter, just as it tells the tale of the Gotlandic people of which he was a part: an independent, peace-loving folk living amidst a landscape of wild, wind-swept island beauty.
