Set in Iceland and Algiers in the 17th century, broadcaster and journalist Sally Magnusson reimagines the true story of a pirate raid of a tiny Westman island, in which a pastor, his wife and their children – along with half their island – were abducted into slavery. Captive in an Arab culture, the story follows the pastor’s wife, and how she deals with the loss of her identity and her home.
