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
