The Faroes, or, more precisely, Faroese life, are subject and plot, respectively, of this, Heinesens's 1934 first novel, appearing finally in its first English translation. Among the principals are a Lutheran minister slipping into paranoiac delusions; a dour, suspicious, shrewd village shopkeeper; a woman innkeeper and majordomo-for-hire with a shrouded past; the philosophical and compassionate male teacher at a small islands school; a bad penny of an evangelical Adventist missionary; a meek, compulsively eavesdropping, middle-aged itinerant; and a thoughtful, wondering youth just awakening to the world. The story, such as it is, consists of what these people and others think and how they interact within the span of roughly one year
