“Burial Rites”

Hannah Kent’s literary debut follows the true story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir, a young maid charged with the brutal murder of her former master and lover and condemned to execution in 1829. Meticulously researched, this chilling account is set in a starkly beautiful part of Iceland that’s as remote and heartbreaking as the haunting page-turner itself.

Available at amazon.com, $17.
