Summary
Idealistic and misguided, a newly ordained priest sails to Greenland in 1787 to convert the Inuit to the Danish church. A rugged outpost battered by harsh winters, Sukkertoppen is overshadowed by the threat of dissent; natives from neighbouring villages have united to reject Danish rule and establish their own settlement atop Eternal Fjord. As he becomes involved with those in his care - his ambitious catechist, a lonely trader's wife, and a fatalistic widow he comes to love - his faith and reputation are dangerously called into question
