rating 8.5 /historical fiction (mythical?)

Very unusual story of an Icelandic man, Jonas Palmeson (Jonas the Learned),  in the years 1635-1639 who along with his wife and children has been exiled to Gullbjorn’s Island for sorcery.  He communes with the birds and nature and thinks about a lot of Biblical/superstition stuff as he also relates to the reader what brought him here.  >>>>>MORE>>>>>
