In the summer of the year of the Millennium, a barefoot stranger comes to the door of the manse for help. But three days later he disappears without trace, leaving a bundle of papers behind.
Da Happie Laand weaves the old minister’s attempt to make sense of the mysteries left behind by his ‘lost sheep’—the strange tale of a search for his missing father at midsummer—with an older story relating the fate of a Zetlandic community across the centuries, the tales of those people who emigrated to New Zetland in the South Pacific, and those who satyed behind. to build a new life in the promised land, and those who stayed behind.
