In the Seldom a Single Wave: Tales of the Viking Age Novel:
Falsely accused of stealing a fighting stallion by a neighbouring farmer, the confrontation took a violent turn and although the other man lived, Kjarvalr was tried at the þing and found guilty of fjörbaugsgarður, lesser outlawry. Forced to leave Ísland for 3 years, he promptly burned everything of value on his farm to prevent it from being confiscated and headed for the coast to find passage on a ship.
With him is his young daughter. Brýja Kjarvalsdóttir is seven years old.
