Burial Rites - Hannah Kent

Agnes has been transported to the farm where she is to stay, until her planned execution. the family to "host" her is generally unhappy about this being foisted on them, obviously worried about their safety, but some guards, and an Assistant Reverend are also present, for now.


it's a wonderful book so far, with a bleakness to it that I expected. I haven't gotten to know Agnes much, yet, though the narrative does shift to her thoughts, her head, every now and then. I think this is going to be a great read.
