Cover for The Sorrow Stone

It's very exciting to be able to share the cover of my new book, The Sorrow Stone, which will be published on 1 March 2022.

The setting of much of the novel, in the fjord country of western Iceland, is central to the story, so it is wonderful to have such an evocative landscape image for the cover.

The title is drawn from a medieval Icelandic kenning for heart, “harmsfullum halli hugstrandar” — translated by The Skaldic Project as “a sorrowful stone of the shore of thought.”
