During Bree’s 5 long years of captivity and servitude to Mikkel, the Viking raider, Briana has longed to return to her family and piece together her previous life. The raider has promised to return her home, but will he keep his promise after all these years? She hopes against hope to return to the young man who swore his love to her so many years ago, and longs for the warmth of family and friends. But the years have changed Bree.
