Dear Listener: Season of the Sun first appeared in 1991. Zarabeth, with hair as red as an Irish sunset, is chosen by Magnus Haraldsson, a Viking on a trading visit to York, to be his wife. She is both stunned and fascinated by this man’s bluntness, his arrogance, his absolute belief that she is meant to belong to him. He also makes her laugh and ultimately she gives him her trust, not only with her future but with that of her little sister, Lotti. But Zarabeth’s stepfather, Olav the Vain, has no intention of setting a bride price on Zarabeth.
Zarabeth does eventually return with Magnus to his farmstead in Norway, but as his slave, not as his wife. She wears the slave collar around her neck for all to see, but hides her own pain deep within her.
It is the season of the sun in Norway, the clear midnight life of summer, the season of growth and flowering, of treachery and malice. It was the season of growth for a man and a woman to learn of each other - and themselves.

I could "see" the characters. When I thought a specific character was at first cheesy and it turned me off I was glad I stuck with it. The story quickly used the ridiculousness of it into a very meaningful aspect of that character. He was introduced to the story so you saw him thru those eyes so your reaction as the story developes is set into the right frame of mind. I didn't see that coming and am glad I didn't give up on it at that awkward moment.
Yes I have. I actually get tired of her voice and the way every book she narrates seems to have the same characters at first. This one however was much more individualized and I heard the characters of this specific tale.
Yes... but there were several and I am not about to offer up the spoiler that this question begs for!
Worth a credit? I say buy it.... its cheap enough and I would definitely save that credit for something that costs more... isnt that why we buy credits after all?

This era when the men ruled and women really had no place.
The night she slipped away and met him at his ship and the way they were happy to see each other

The Vikings were a violent people living in violent times. Rape, murder, and pillage. It's what they did best.It's a very sad disturbing story. A very dark book brought to life by one of my favorite narrators Anne Flosnik,
