Staff Reviews


The Mercies is a gorgeously compelling novel that leaves the reader breathless. Ms. Hargrave deftly brings life and beauty to heart-rending history. Her breadth of knowledge and stormy atmosphere invokes tremendous emotion. It is an excellent addition to the feminist retellings of the male-centric histories that we need right now.

“A chilling and captivating book taking place in a Norwegian village in the 1670s, The Mercies is a story of resilience. It follows Maren, who watched as all the village men died in a storm and has had to find a way to survive those losses, and Ursa, the daughter of a merchant who was married off to a witch hunter before being brought north. When their paths cross, both women’s lives are changed forever. This beautifully written story left me chilled. It is not often that I have to put down a book, but there were several times I had to walk away from this one to just sit and think about it. A must-read!”
