    ePUB Kiran Millwood Hargrave ì The Mercies PDF/EPUB ´ ì mercies kindle, The Mercies PDFReading this novel was like a feast to me For one thing the setting and all details included in this book are splendid Scenery clothes food or architectural descriptions are splendidly researched and woven into the plot It is 1617 and a most terrifying storm that caims the lives of forty men begins what turns out to be a harrowing period for the women who are left behind in a small fishing village of Vardo in the north of Norway and who can either try to survive by setting their own ways or who may perish due to the lack of fish fur or grain Choosing survival paradoxically brings about damnation upon the bravest of them all Kirsten Those were the days of
