Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

1829 – Iceland. Angus Magnusson is the last female publicly executed in the country. She was found guilty as an accomplice in the murder of two men.

This gripping, well researched and detailed historical fiction provokes its readers to re-examine assumptions. It sheds some light in the bleak darkness surrounding her story. Haunting. This is Hannah Kent’s debut novel. (Submitted by Rei).
