This story was a long time coming. For years I'd struggled with how to write a story about a woman who could see love. I wrote and trashed several different stories with women in different time periods and situations, but nothing worked. Several tries were downright embarrassing. Then my husband and I went to Iceland, and I adored the landscape and people. I tried putting my love-seer in a pseudo-Icelandic setting, and bingo! Gudrun came to life. I hope you enjoy the result.
