About the book: 

1686, Iceland.

Betrothed unexpectedly to Jon Eriksson, Rosa travels to the isolated, windswept village of Stykkisholmur. Here, the villagers are suspicious of outsiders - especially one from the everdark edge of civilisation.

But Rosa harbours her own suspicions. Her husband buried his first wife alone in the dead of night.
