Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Sterkarms have plundered the border between Scotland and England for generations. Suddenly intruders, calling themselves Elves, want the Sterkarms to stop their violent ways.

The Elves, time travelers from the 21st century, have found a way back to the 16th century and plan to do their own plundering of the land's rich natural resources. Their only mistake is foolishly underestimating the Sterkarms themselves.

For Andrea Mitchell, an anthropologist working among the Sterkarms, none of this matters. In love with Per — a young Sterkarm warrior — and feted as a beautiful Elf-May, she's never known such happiness in her own time.

But when Per receives a deadly injury, Andrea's decision to take him into the 21st century to save him has explosive results. Per, seeing how powerful and destructive the Elves truly are, swears to keep them from his land forever. And in the bloody battle that ensues, Andrea must finally choose whose side she is on.

The Sterkarm Handshake is a stirring tale of a clash of two cultures, beautifully told by master storyteller Susan Price.

Synopsis:

The Sterkarms have plundered the Scottish border for generations. Now time travelers from the future have found a way back to the 16th century to do their own plundering. Andrea Mitchell, a 21st-century woman who has found a home among the Sterkarms, is caught between two cultures. She underestimates the arrogance and treachery of her adopted hosts — and of her fellow time travelers, who will stop at nothing to have their way.
