Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.
Charged with the brutal murder of her former master, Agnes is sent to an isolated farm set in Iceland's stark countryside to await her execution. Horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer, the family at first avoids Agnes. But as Agnes's death looms, the farmer's wife and their daughters learn there is another side to the sensational story they've heard. This novel asks, what if our very lives depended on the stories told by others?
