BeautifulWreck_frontcover_NEW_sm“…Exquisite. The kind of book that makes you hold your breath and keep turning pages.”
–Laura Stanfill, award-winning author of BRAVE ON THE PAGE

In a bleak future built on virtual reality, Ginn is a romantic who yearns for something real. She designs environments for people who play at being Vikings. But when her project goes awry, she’s stranded in the actual 10th century, on a storybook farm in Viking Iceland.

Heirik is the young leader of his family, honored by those who live on his land, but feared and isolated because of a curse. Ginn and Heirik are two people who never thought they would find a home in someone else’s heart. When forces rise against them to keep them apart, Ginn is called on to decide—will she give up the brutal and beautiful reality of the past? Or will she have the courage to traverse time and become more of a Viking than she ever imagined?

“With a plot as exciting as it is bold, and with characters as real and important as family, Larissa Brown’s BEAUTIFUL WRECK weaves an intensely gripping tale about the strength of women and the love they carry. This is the story we’ve been waiting for.”
–Rachael Herron, bestselling author of HOW TO KNIT A LOVE SONG and PACK UP THE MOON
