Norway: "The Mercies"

Recently finished "The Mercies" by Kiran Millwood Hargrave on Audible and came to recommend it. It is a gripping fictional story based on true events - a devastating storm in Vardo in 1617 wiped out all the men in the community, resulting in the women having to assume non traditional roles. When the king of Scotland hears about this, he sends an emissary to put a stop to it, which he does through the use of horrific witch trials.

I highly recommend the audio version. The narration was fantastic!
