The Sealwoman’s Gift

Sally Magnusson

Sunday 14th October 10:30 - 11:30 | Northwood House

Set in Iceland and Algiers in the 17th century the debut novel by Sally Magnusson re-imagines the true story of a pirate raid on one of the tiny Westman islands, in which a pastor, his wife and their children—along with half their island and many others–are abducted into slavery. The pastor’s wife meets the unravelling of her identity and the least bearable of losses with the one thing she has brought from home; the stories in her head. Until one day she is faced with an impossible choice.
