Daniel  Wolf - In the Sign of the Lion


Young Jann Osinga is a brilliant ship builder – but he has powerful enemies and their revenge is merciless

Friesland 1351: Building ships – that has always been the dream of young carpenter Jann Wilken. His aim is to revolutionise seafaring with his brilliant ideas and make a name for himself in the harbours of the Hanseatic League.

But things are not easy for Jann. He is the illegitimate son of the powerful Wilke Tammen, who loathes his bastard child and humiliates him every day. The violent-tempered Wilke is involved in a vendetta against his archenemy Enne Rycken and draws his sons into the conflict. Jann has long been in love with his childhood sweetheart Jorien. But when he is about to admit his feelings to her his village is attacked by Enne and it results in catastrophe …

The beginning of a series featuring the influential Frisian Osinga family at the time of the Hanseatic League.

"A superb historical novel – with no let up of fascination or suspense through its nearly 1000 pages."
