The storm comes in like a finger snap . . .
Winter, 1617. The sea around the remote Norwegian island of Vardø is thrown into a vicious storm. A young woman, Maren, watches as the men of the island, out fishing, perish in an instant.
Vardø is now a place of women.
Eighteen months later, a sinister figure arrives. Absalom Cornet has been summoned to bring the women of the island to heel. With him travels his young wife, Ursa. In her new home, and in Maren, Ursa encounters something she has never seen before: independent women. But where Ursa finds happiness, even love, Absalom sees only a place flooded with a terrible evil, one he must root out at all costs . . .

You Will Never Be the Same

Bewertung am 09.07.2020

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

The Mercies is Kiran Millwood Hargraves' first novel for adults. Her experience as a children's writer shines through this thoughtful narrative in the form of lyrical, poignant language, a plot that accelerates towards its inevitable conclusion, and concise, empathetic insight into characters struggling against a hostile environment. On the coast of Norway, in the village of Vardo, a storm wipes out all the men. Left to their own devices, the women band together in a struggle for survival. Maren, who loses her father and brother in the storm, is threatened by grief like nothing before, but when a new commisioner on a mission to save the women of Vardo from witch craft arrives with his beautiful new wife, everything changes. This book is beautiful and harrowing, at times uncomfortable to read, but very worth the emotional investment. A wonderful novel - buy it, read it, and hold your loved ones close.
