'Burial Rites is an accomplished gem, its prose as crisp and sparkling as its northern setting.'
Geraldine Brooks, bestselling author

Based on a true story.

In northern Iceland, 1829, authorities condemn Agnes Magnusdottir to death for her part in the brutal murder of two men. Agnes is sent to the farm of District Officer Jon Jonsson and his family to await execution. She is shunned by all, except the young reverend appointed as her spiritual guardian. As the summer months yield to a bitter winter, Agnes’s story begins to emerge. And as her execution draws closer, the question burns more fiercely: did she or didn’t she commit murder? Based on a true story, Burial Rites is a profoundly moving novel about the ultimate price of freedom and the risks we take for love.

'So gripping I wanted to rush through the pages, but so beautifully written I wanted to linger over every sentence. Hannah Kent’s debut novel is outstanding.'
Madeline Miller, Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles
