Burial Rites by Hannah Kent (December 2016)

Northern Iceland, 1829

A woman condemned to death for murdering her lover.  A family forced to take her in.  A priest tasked with absolving her.

But all is not as it seems, and time is running out: winter is coming, and with it the execution date.

Only she can know the truth.  This is Agnes's story.
