Burial Rites

Burial Rites - Hannah Kent What a book. A fantastic story told wonderfully, capturing all the nuances and humanity of the characters and their situations. None of the characters, Agnes included, are completely good or bad. Kent has managed to clearly show the inhumanity of the death penalty. Agnes journey from the farm house to the site of execution is one of the most moving passages I've read and shows how we are all diminished by the death penalty.
