In Burial Rites, Hannah Kent presents an infamous character from Icelandic history, Agnus Magnusdottir, accused of arson and of murdering two men in the 1800s. Kent presents a fictionalized account of the complex protagonist who is hated by the masses, distrusted by the small farm family who is forced to house her until her execution, and misunderstood by nearly everyone around her. The story begins when the accused arrives on a remote farm, and during her stay, she recounts her tale of woe.

'It was the drop of a match. I did not see that we were surrounded by tinder until I felt it burst into flames' Burial Rites by Hannah Kent - February Book Club - Wed, Feb. 18th @ 10AM!

Shortlisted for the Stella Prize 2014 and Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction northern Iceland, Agnes Magnusdottir is condemned to death for her part in the brutal murder of two men.Agnes is sent to wait on the farm of District Officer Jon

Beautifully written, it reeks of authenticity. You get a real sense of how harsh and arbitrary life must have been in Iceland nearly 200 years ago. I agree with the attached review, though - the novel really sings when it's written in the voice of Agnes. The constant shift in person can be distracting.
