Publisher's Summary

The Reindeer Hunters is the second in a thrilling historical trilogy that began with The Bell in the Lake.

The year is 1903, and 22 years have passed since Astrid Hekne died in childbirth. Her son, Jehans, lives on a modest smallholding up in the hills near Butangen, having withdrawn from his community. He is drawn to freedom, to fishing and reindeer hunting, and one day meets a stranger over the body of a huge reindeer buck.

Outside the new church in Butangen, Pastor Kai Schweigaard still cares for Astrid Hekne's grave. The village's overworked priest is tormented by his old betrayal, which led to death and to the separation of two powerful church bells cast in memory of two sisters in Astrid's family. Kai is set on finding an ancient tapestry made by the sisters - the Hekne Weave - in the hope that it will reveal how he can remedy his iniquities.

Conceived on an epic scale by Norway's best-selling author, The Reindeer Hunters is a novel about love and bitter rivalries, sorrow and courage, about history and myth and a country as it enters a new era, about the first electric light and the Great War in Europe, where brother stands against brother.

Didn't want it to end

After finishing the Bell in the Lake we couldn't wait for part 2. It didn't disappoint. The same great story telling, obviously well researched, that really takes you to Norway at the turn of the century. Great characters, great detail, lovely gentle narration.
