Gillings Bluff [book #1]
Having overheard her father say that a wandering warrior had taken refuge on their property, Gisela comes across Finn "Hairybreches" Hringrsson asleep in the family barn. As she attempts to seduce Finn, she tells him that her father, Gustav, plans to sacrifice himself and her Mother at the Family Cliff or Gillings Bluff, come morning. Her family and ancestors have been jumping to their death, to avoid poverty, overpopulation of the farm and starvation, by cutting down the size of the family as needed. They would also jump off the cliff to avoid old age and even minor illness. It is believed among these farmers that their death over the cliff would earn them a place in Valhalla with their god Odin.
