              The Mercies (EPUB ebook)

              By Hargrave, Kiran Millwood

              'A gripping novel inspired by a real-life witch hunt . . . Beautiful and chilling' Madeline Miller, author of Circe On Christmas Eve, 1617, the sea around the remote Norwegian island of Vard is thrown into a reckless storm. As Maren Magnusdatter watches, forty fishermen, includin...g her father and brother, are lost to the waves, the menfolk of Vard wiped out in an instant. Now the women must fend for themselves. Eighteen months later, a sinister figure arrives. Summoned from Scotland to take control of a place at the edge of the civilized world, Absalom Cornet knows what he needs to do to bring the women of Vard to heel. With him travels his young wife, Ursa. In Vard, and in Maren, Ursa finds something she has never seen before: independent women. But Absalom sees only a place untouched by God and flooded with a mighty and terrible evil, one he must root out at all costs. Inspired by the real events of the Vard storm and the 1621 witch trials, Kiran Millwood Hargrave's The Mercies is a story about how suspicion can twist its way through a community, and a love that may prove as dangerous as it is powerful. PRAISE FOR THE MERCIES 'The Mercies took my breath away. A beautifully rendered portrait of a community, a landscape, a relationship, I read it with equal parts hope and dread. Kiran Millwood Hargrave has masterfully built up an incredible claustrophobic atmosphere, shot through with delicate intimacy. On finishing it I pressed the book to me, hoping to absorb some of her skill.' Tracy Chevalier, author of Girl With a Pearl Earring 'The Mercies is storytelling at its most masterful. This is an exquisite tale of sisterhood, of love, of courage and of what happens when communities turn on each other. It is everything I could have desired in a book: beguiling plotting, stunning prose, and a profound understanding of human nature. I have nothing short of awe for Kiran Millwood Hargrave and all she has accomplished here. I raged, I laughed, I cried. I urge you to read th

              Kiran Millwood Hargrave was born in London in 1990. The British Shakespeare Assocation commissioned her first pamphlet Scavengers. Her poetry and short stories have been selected to feature in publications such as The New Writer, Aviary, The Forest Book of Bedtime Stories and Orb...is. Last March was produced in collaboration with the Scott Polar Research Institute to mark the centenary of Captain Scott's final expedition to the South Pole. This astonishing collection transports the reader to the 'last place without men' - a place that, for all our civilisation, we can still be rubbed to 'knuckles' by the extremity of the weather, the isolation. And though the poems are rooted in history, there is a chilling message here for the future: 'that water, with seeping insouciance, really can unmake stone'.

              After the men in an Arctic Norwegian town are wiped out, the women must survive a sinister threat in this perfectly told 1600s parable of a world gone mad (Adriana Trigiani). Finnmark, Norway, 1617. Twenty-year-old Maren Magnusdatter stands on the craggy coast, watching the sea b...reak into a sudden and reckless storm. Forty fishermen, including her brother and father, are drowned and left broken on the rocks below. With the menfolk wiped out, the women of the tiny Arctic town of Vardo must fend for themselves. Three years later, a sinister figure arrives. Absalom Cornet comes from Scotland, where he burned witches in the northern isles. He brings with him his young Norwegian wife, Ursa, who is both heady with her husband's authority and terrified by it. In Vardo, and in Maren, Ursa sees something she has never seen before: independent women. But Absalom sees only a place untouched by God, and flooded with a mighty evil. As Maren and Ursa are drawn to one another in ways that surprise them both, the island begins to close in on them, with Absalom's iron rule threatening Vardo's very existence. Inspired by the real events of the Vardo storm and the 1621 witch trials, The Mercies is a story of love, evil, and obsession, set at the edge of civilization.
