When her childhood friend and love marries another, Wulfhera of Froxton enters a nunnery, but in December 999 Viking raids and the panic surrounding the coming of the millennium cause her to flee home. There she finds Raef a widower, but intent only on despair and suicidal vengeance. Then, on the shortest day of the year, she finds a precious jewel in the belly of a fish. Is it the fabled Star of the Magi? Can it really help her to bring peace, and save the life of the man she loves?
"...well-crafted tale of love and enchantment. Two sisters find unexpected love and help bring peace between two enemy warriors in Jo Beverley's passionate, Viking-filled "Day of Wrath". Fans of the medieval period may be particularly interested in the historical detail, especially the way in which people then viewed the millennium."
Set in the Medieval period.
