About the Author

Kiran Millwood Hargrave is the author of The Mercies (Little, Brown).


"A beautifully rendered portrait of a community, a landscape, and a relationship. I read it with equal parts hope and dread."

-- "Tracy Chevalier, New York Times bestselling author"

"A novel for our times with artistry and skill. Maren's story is powerful, at turns, it is disturbing, and ultimately illuminating. You will ponder it long after you finish this magnificent work."

-- "Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author"

"This one has all the most delicious ingredients--witches, the Arctic, and the disappearance of men...Millwood Hargrave's story turns on an unlikely female friendship forged in the icy climate of a witch trial."

-- "Glamour"

"In clean, gripping sentences the author is wonderfully tuned to the ways and gestures of a seemingly taciturn people...This chilling tale of religious persecution is served up with a feminist bite."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
