"Outraged that the Hidden Folk have favored Anlaf Haraldsson with the greenest valley in the North, Gorm the Grim lays a curse on Anlaf and all his line. Because of the curse, Anlaf's Daughter Elfwyn, is born blind. But though she cannot see, Elfwyn is blessed by the Hidden Folk. Her grace, her knowledge, and her astonishing ability to -see- without sight astonish everyone-until Gorm returns with a gift even more menacing than his curse." This is David Wisniewski's fourth published work of illustration and the second book he both wrote and illustrated. Unpaginated.
