So far I'm really enjoying this one.  It was one of my older ARCs and I thought I'd better get busy and read it.  It is set in Iceland in 1829, and I am not too familiar with this era of Icelandic history.  It is a historical novel, but is based on a true story.  So far so good!  I can't wait to see where this one will take me.  I'm about 20% done, so I've got a bit more reading to do, but as I said I'm liking it so far.
