This review is from: Burial Rites (Kindle Edition)
A powerful plea for understanding and a sincere indictment of capital punishment.
The final days of Agnes's life are almost unbearable. Stay with this bleak narrative because it gives back heartfelt humanity to the reader. It also reveals the compassion of the church in a time and place when it was expected to simply endorse the rule of law. I suspect this character and her sad story will haunt me.
