The Sealwoman's Gift

by Sally Magnusson
£8.99   paperback  Hodder & Stoughton (2018)

The Sealwoman 1627. In a notorious historical event, pirates raided the coast of Iceland and abducted 400 people into slavery in Algiers. Among them a pastor, his wife, and their children.
 
In her acclaimed debut novel Sally Magnusson imagines what history does not record: the experience of Asta, the pastor's wife, as she faces her losses with the one thing left to her - the stories from home - and forges an ambiguous bond with the man who bought her.
 
Uplifting, moving, and witty, The Sealwoman's Gift speaks across centuries and oceans about loss, love, resilience and redemption.
 
Chosen for the BBC Radio 2 Book Club and the ITV Zoe Ball Book Club.
