Summary (From the publisher):

An epistolary novel based on the life of the Reverend Lucas Debes, a larger than life character called Peder Børresen in the novel. It tells a story of brutal oppression, poverty and terrible diseases, but also of resistance and of having the courage of one’s convictions. It is a dramatic fantasy in which Heinesen’s customary themes – the struggle against evil, sectarianism, superstition and oppression –emerge on a higher plane, set against the backcloth of the Faroe Islands in the 1690s.
