Archibald Constable and Company; and Hurst, Robinson, and Company, London., 1822 - 346 psl.
At the end of the 1600's, the customs and beliefs of the Norse are ebbing away from the Shetland and Orkney islands. Only the elder daughter of the Troil family wants to preserve the old ways, and vowing to marry only a "sea-king," favors a shipwrecked captain. Her father's cousin wishes her to marry Mordaunt, secretly believing him to be her long-lost son; Mordaunt though loves the younger daughter. Both men are driven from the Troils; Mordaunt is grievously injured and the captain is arrested for piracy.
