Island 1686:
"...Die junge Rósa leidet unter so bitterer Armut, dass sie befürchtet, den Winter nicht zu überleben. In ihrer Verzweiflung nimmt die den Antrag des reichen Händlers Jón an. Düstere Legenden ranken sich um Jón, doch dieser schweigt dazu.
Als das Dorf eines Nachts von Schnee und Eis bedeckt wird, rückt die Bedrohung näher, und diesmal steht Rósa im Auge des Sturms..."
Spannend, manchmal gruselig- perfekt für einen Winterabend!

Wait, what?! That ending came out of nowhere! Like California sunshine after pages trekked through an Icelandic winter snow storm. It almost ruined the overall gloomy atmospherics that were a real strong point. Beautiful cover candy though!

I am half way through this book and I am going to have to pass on this one. The writing is gorgeous but the story isn't keeping me interested. In fact, it's boring me to death 💀 So...on to the next.

I really enjoyed this Gothic-like story set in 1689 Iceland. Following her father‘s death, Rosa is forced to marry and move away from home so that she and her mother will not freeze or starve during the coming winter. Rumors abound about the fate of her new husband‘s first wife and the strange man who works for him. The author did a great job of sustaining tension throughout and audiobook narration was very good. 4.5⭐️ Available on #Hoopla

Tamra I‘m anxious to read this one. (edited) 3mo

Review: The Glass Woman is an extremely surprising read for me. I did not know exactly what I was getting into. I had recently finished Burial Rites by Hannah Kent. I loved that book so much. I thought another book set in Iceland in the 19th century, I am in. This book was just as atmospheric as Burial Rites, which I loved.

Dark and moody. It took me places I didn‘t expect to go and made me feel all the feelings. I‘m looking forward to seeing what this author does next.

Truly, this is my kind of thriller, set with the rich history of a time and culture long past. The story is woven so delicately, without gory detail or cheap tricks. The romance (which I will leave a mystery for you all!) is hinted at in a really poetic way. Once I got into this book I absolutely couldn‘t put it down. 4 / 5

Really good one! Lots of foreboding and atmosphere. A tension filled thrilling ending. I shed a tear even at the end, which I thought was quite beautiful, but I won't say for whom I shed that tear. Might give too much away. 👍

Tamra Oh this sounds good! Dark. 8mo
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @Tamra 👍 it is good!! 8mo
Tashreads I shed a tear or two as well. Completely unexpected right? 5mo
Penny_LiteraryHoarders @Tashreads right? Such a great ending!! 5mo

I wasnt sure what I was expecting in this story but it wasnt this. Not that I'm saying it was bad, in fact it was really good, the story had so many layers that i just wasnt expecting. It's a slow burning story but it pulls you in and doesn't let go until the very last page. Theres much drama and some very clever twists that really add to the story. The ending was perfect and yet sad at the same time.

I was unsure about this one at first. It‘s definitely a slow starter but things gradually build into a stunning conclusion. Whilst reading it, it did remind me of Bluebeard at times. Overall it was very atmospheric & worth persevering with. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Penguin UK / Michael Joseph, for the opportunity to review an ARC. #NetGalley

I can already tell this one is going to be a five star read for me even though I‘m only halfway through! I think I love anything set in Iceland for some reason! 😅 The fact this one is set in the past is an added bonus! 💛

Christine11 @Amabear It‘s about a young woman who moves across Iceland to marry a rich man whose wife just died in suspicious circumstances. It‘s kind of like Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier so far - very atmospheric - I‘m loving it! 😊 10mo
Christine11 @Cathythoughts Me too - it looks amazing! 😊 10mo
