The Prophets of Eternal Fjord

by Kim Leine - £9.99  Atlantic Books (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780857897930 | ISBN 10: 0857897934

Idealistic, misguided Morten Falck is a newly ordained priest sailing to Greenland in 1787 to convert the Inuit to the Danish church. A rugged outpost battered by harsh winters, Sukkertoppen is overshadowed by the threat of dissent; natives from neighboring villages have united to reject Danish rule and establish their own settlement atop Eternal Fjord.
 
As Falck becomes involved with those in his care - his ambitious catechist, a lonely trader's wife, and a fatalistic widow he comes to love - his faith and reputation are dangerously called into question.
