Set in Iceland in the 1800s, “Burial Rites,” by Hannah Kent follows a woman who is “sentenced” to be housed with a family for her role in a murder. Through the harsh winter, she becomes part of the family, and the community comes to see her as a person. Based on the amazing true story of the final beheading in Iceland, this story shows the culture and community — and how redemption and reconciliation can win over suspicion — a person’s history, the abuse, and the mistakes that are a result of being in the wrong place.
