Description


Twelve Years a Slave: A True Story by Solomon Northup. Illustrated Narrative of Solomon Northup, a Citizen of New-York, Kidnapped In Washington City In 1841, and Rescued in 1853. The Narrative will be read with interest by every one who can sympathise with a human being struggling for freedom.-Buffalo Courier. The volume cannot fail to gain a wide circulation. It will be read extensively, both at the North and South. No one can contemplate the scenes which are here so naturally set forth, without a new conviction of the hideousness of the institution from which the subject of the narrative has happily escaped.-N.Y. Tribune . Next to Uncle Tom"s Cabin, the extraordinary Narrative of Solomon Northup is the most remarkable book that was ever issued from the American press, intended to illustrate what Solomon saw and experienced, Southern Slavery in its various phases.-Detroit Trib. This is one of the most exciting narratives, full of incidents artlessly told, with all the marks of truth.-Cin. Jour.

I loved this Gothic thriller infused with brittle ice, treacherous snow and an unforgiving sea, and in the hands of author Lea, this Icelandic tale set in brutal & harsh 1680’s is not for the faint of heart. Rosa is married off, as the obedient second wife, to a prosperous chieftain of a far off village, where tensions are high, reading runes is a burnable offense, and all sorts of dark, suspicions lie in wait for Rosa. A palpable yearning develops within Rosa, whose strength and wits are at first deceptive as she navigates her abysmal loneliness & isolation & fraught relationships in this repressed society. A shivery story that will hold you through the very last sentence includes a very useful glossary of Icelandic terms. - review by Maureen
