Burial Rites by Hannah Kent

** I actually finished this book a while ago but haven’t had time to post my review. **

* Picture from Amazon*

Format read: Paperback

Genre: Historical Fiction

Rating: 7 out of 10

Plot: Agnes Magnesdottir has been sentenced to death for the murder of one of her former employees. While she is awaiting her punishment, she is sent to a remote farm where she slowly reveals her story and earns the trust and support of the family.

Opinion: I thought this was a pretty good book, although it was slow at times.  Also, I never really felt connected to the main character, which made it hard to empathize with her.   I learned about a historical event that I knew nothing about prior, and that’s always a plus for me when I’m reading historical fiction.

Next book: A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans
