[good solid copy, light shelfwear, faint smudging to fore-edge; jacket torn at top of spine (with resulting dog-earing and minor paper loss), also a bit dog-eared at base of spine, otherwise just moderately rubbed, diagonal creasing to rear flap]. "A novel of sorcery and the ultimate pagan sacrifice," about thirteen people shipwrecked off the coast of Portugal in the 12th century, who must endure a forty-day trek to survive. "Harrowing on the physical level, this is also a spiritual struggle, for faith in the Christian God is at best tentative, and hate and fear and lust prevail."
