"Burial Rites" by Hannah Kent is an Outstanding Read!

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent is an outstanding read based on a true story. Agnus was the last woman to be publicly beheaded in Iceland for murder.  While waiting her execution, she is at an isolated farm where the family avoids her.  Only a priest seeks to understand her. 

Even though I knew how it would end, it does not take away from the story.  Believe me, it doesn't!  This book pulled me in the first few pages and the characters in it are all really good.  I hear there is talk of a movie deal--if that is true, it would be a good one.
(Gerard's review, 5+ stars)
