This book is set in Iceland in 1829. It follows the story of Agnes, a woman condemned for the murder of her lover. While waiting for her execution, she is forced to live with a family she does not know and who does not want her.

I am in awe of this book. The places and the characters simply sucked me into their world, and I did not want to leave. The story has a stillness to it that I think is quite rare, and yet it was very exciting in the way that the relationships between the characters developed. I could picture everything and everyone, and I thought the ending was real and beautiful.

I would highly recommend this to everyone.
