It’s Competition Time: Chance to win one of three copies of Burial Rites
To celebrate Burial Rites by Hannah Kent being published in beautiful paperback, Picador are giving you the chance to win one of 3 copies of this amazing book!
Burial Rites is based on the true story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir – the last woman to be executed in Iceland. Set in Iceland in 1829, this is an extraordinarily beautiful and hopeful tale, with a fascinating and extremely dark history to it. Oh, and did we mention that last year it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence and The Hunger Games director Gary Ross are teaming up to adapt the book for screen, with J-Law set to play Agnes. This is the perfect time to read the book that everyone is talking about…
A woman condemned to death for murdering her lover.
A family forced to take her in. A priest tasked with absolving her.
But all is not as it seems, and time is running out: winter is coming, and with it the execution date.
Only she can know the truth. This is Agnes’s story.
