Selected for the Zoe Ball ITV Book Club and BBC Radio 2 Book Club. The debut novel of abduction and slavery set in 17th century Iceland and North Africa by Sunday Times bestselling author and broadcaster Sally Magnusson.

A Zoe Ball ITV Book Club Pick

1627. In a notorious historical event, pirates raided the coast of Iceland and abducted 400 people into slavery in Algiers. Among them a pastor, his wife, and their children.

In her acclaimed debut novel Sally Magnusson imagines what history does not record: the experience of Asta, the pastor's wife, as she faces her losses with the one thing left to her - the stories from home - and forges an ambiguous bond with the man who bought her.

Uplifting, moving, and witty, The Sealwoman's Gift speaks across centuries and oceans about loss, love, resilience and redemption.

Chosen for the BBC Radio 2 Book Club (a really really good book) and the ITV Zoe Ball Book Club (the quality of the writing is amazing).

"Icelandic history has been brought to extraordinary life... An accomplished and intelligent novel" Yrsa Siguroardottir, author of Why Did You Lie?
